As leader of a large organization devoted to world peace through education and culture, it is not surprising that music and song play a major role in the work of Daisaku Ikeda, who gets a year brighter today.
Whether it be the ruckus about the use of the chorale ode to joy or whether it be his own description of his sleepless nights trying to get a song right just short of the deadline, Sensei has literally risen to the challenge of upholding the right side of the right again and again and launched into martial fan dances and broken out in morning songs. Discrimination is truly, sometimes, not a bad word.
Happy Birthday Old Man!!!
