March 16: Youth taking the lead!

posted on 16 March 2012

March 16, the day in 1958 that 2nd Soka Gakkai President Josei Toda passed on the responsibility for achieving kosen-rufu specifically to Daisaku Ikeda, who became the 3rd president in 1960, and generally to all the youth.  Today is a fresh start, a day of renewed determination to take responsibility to advance kosen-rufu.

Courage, strength and wisdom well up in those who consciously take on everything as the protagonist and person responsible for achieving their goals. Unlimited wisdom and ardent resolve arise from a sense of responsibility.  Daisaku Ikeda
