BRIEF SUMMARIES of recent comments by President Ikeda in regards to the tsunami
and earthquake in Asia.
Take note that these are ONLY summaries and are NOT official translations!
- "...soon after the disaster occurred, in his speech at a meeting on Dec. 28th, President Ikeda responded
by expressing his deep concern and sincere condolence for all those who passed away and their families, and said he is very
earnestly chanting daimoku for all the victims. Also he urged everybody
to pray wholeheartedly for the best and most efficient
forms of rescue to as many people as possible. (Dec. 29 Seikyo S.)
- In his speech at the New Year's
leaders meeting on Jan. 2 at Makiguchi Memorial Hall, President Ikeda again expressed his deep condolences and concern for
all the victims and their families and the severe damage that was caused by the massive earthquake on the island of Sumatra
and from the Indian Ocean tsunami disaster. He mentioned that he is sincerely praying, as a Buddhist, for all those deceased
victims and their families and also for the progress of all the disaster relief efforts and quick recovery and reconstruction.
(First paragraph of his speech, page 2, Seikyo Shimbun, January 5, 2005)
