Lecture on Letter to Jakunichi-Bo April 2011

April 10th, 2011

Jason is back from Japan and we are back with another show! Tonight we have a lecture for you on Nichiren Daishonin’s writing, “Letter to Jakunichi-Bo”. Based on President Ikeda’s lecture in SGI Newsletter 7676, this is the second time Jason has lectured on this writing, but it’s so different! Themes include:

  • Forging ordinary human beings into buddhas
  • Gohonzon, a blue print for Buddhahood
  • What are the odds being able to practice
  • The four virtues
  • Bodhisattva Superior Practices
  • Three powerful enemies
  • The right teacher
  • Three presidents
  • Johan Galtung

Tonight we have music from the Podsafe Music Network. We play Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros singing Coma Girl and Kelly Brock with Cowboy Boots and Levis. We have shoutouts and a quick catch up with Jason’s last few weeks. The artwork for tonights show is of the cherry blossom in Tokyo last week.
Thank you so much for waiting and for taking the time to download the show. Have a fabulous week!


  1. Welcome home, Jason, so that’s what jet-lag sounds like, eh? Not bad…OK that was brilliant, guys! Exactly what I needed to hear right now, today, in this minute, and actual proof of what we can all achieve no matter how tired we are. I’m sure a lot of listeners feel refreshed, understanding that it’s possible to achieve so much, no matter what. Also: thank you, Jason, for news of Japan; good to hear a direct report.

    So we have marked the SGI-UK center in Brixton on our map of London. And of course there will be World Peace Prayer at Taplow Court. And, best of all (drum roll, please)…experiencing the “podcast kitchen” and the whole family!
