The debate continues to rage between science and religion, between the outdated dogma of our mainline religions and the godless materialism of atheism and secular humanism. On the one hand are faith-based claims for the existence of God and the validity of ancient books and prophets; on the other, the powers of reason and the [...]

Just before the most recent Nobel Peace Prize was announced, CNN ran a piece listing ten people as possible leading nominees.  One of these people was Daisaku Ikeda. I imagine many readers, upon seeing his face and name, would have reacted with a puzzled look of non-recognition.  Who is this man? Daisaku Ikeda is not [...]

Daisaku Ikeda Words of Wisdom Site–NEWLY LAUNCHED August 2011

The Humanist Principle
On Compassion and Tolerance

"The need for dialogue is not limited to academic disciplines. Today, as information increases and is transmitted increasingly rapidly, dialogue becomes more essential than ever before. Whether they like it or not - whether they know it or not - cultures are interrelated. And this makes possible more intense exchanges. The exciting thing about intercontinental discussions is the way they enable us to compare our own traditional ways of thinking with those of other peoples. Serious comparisons of this kind always reveal more commonalities than differences." - Felix Unger is one of the world's foremost heart specialists. He is a pioneer of cardiovascular medicine.

Bringing together a wealth of wisdom and experience in medical science and in Buddhist thought and ethics, the discussants together address issues of vital concern. Drawing on thinkers as diverse as Francis de Assisi, Tagore, Leibniz, Teilhard de Chardin, Nichiren and Makiguchi, they enquire, for example, to what degree science and religion, as well as other fields of humanistic learning may find areas of common ground.

They explore the pitfalls, as well as the opportunities, posed by genetic engineering, and agree that education is the foundation for a culture of peace.

Words of Wisdom Website Redesigned

"Words of Wisdom," the popular website featuring daily inspirational words by Daisaku Ikeda about daily life, global issues and applying Buddhist wisdom, was redesigned and relaunched during the summer. Set off by beautiful images of nature, hundreds of quotes are alphabetically categorized for easy access, from "Attitude" to "Youth and Aging." In "Stories of Hope," Mr. Ikeda writes about his impressions of leaders from all sectors of society with whom he has met and engaged in dialogue, such as British historian Arnold Toynbee, former South African President Nelson Mandela and futurist Hazel Henderson. A highlight of this section are audio podcasts of the essays narrated by professional actors and accentuated with background music.

Together with the redesign of the website, a Facebook page, "Words of Wisdom by Daisaku Ikeda," was created with links to the site.

The links to the website and Facebook page are as follows:

About the Author of the Quotes

The above quotes are by Daisaku Ikeda who is the third president of the largest Buddhist organization in the world called the Soka Gakkai International (SGI). They practice a form of Mahayana Buddhism called Nichiren Buddhism.

Daisaku Ikeda has been one of the biggest advocates for peace, personal development, and nuclear disarmament since the 1940’s and he’s still going at 90 years old (as of 2018).

From the time he was 19, he became instrumental to the Soka Gakkai’s success and led the growth of the organization from several thousand members to over 12 million members in 192 countries and territories from within his lifetime.

What’s more, Ikeda has been awarded 365 honorary doctorates from universities around the world. In addition, he’s a scholar and writer, having written well over 20 great books.

His words have served as encouragement, motivation, and inspiration for millions of people.

About Buddhism

The purpose of Buddhism is to establish lives of absolute happiness, an inner state of joy and confidence that can never be taken away, destroyed or defeated.

Nichiren Buddhism promotes the movement for a peaceful world in which people are happy and capable to live out their lives to the fullest.

There are two types of happiness: relative and absolute. Relative happiness refers to short-lived, temporary happiness dependent upon external circumstances.


It’s hard to ignore feelings. But feelings are a part of our mental conditioning.

With practice, you can become the master of your own mind. You can overcome any obstacle with the proper mindset – that is, not letting yourself get swayed when bad things happen.

We all come from different upbringings and have different minds. The only person you should compare yourself with is yourself because we are all unique.

On a final note, I’d like to encourage you to be your best self day after day. And if you fall down or experience a small failure or setback, then learn from your mistakes and just get right back up as quickly as you can.

How have you learned to overcome your obstacles?

October 7. What will the future be like? No one knows the answer to that question . All we know is that the effects that will appear in the future are all contained in.
