This chapter discusses the principle of Daisaku Ikeda's Buddhist Humanism. It suggests that many of the familiar elements of Ikeda's Buddhism can be traced directly to the philosophy of Tsunesaburo Makiguchi, whose life spanned the decades during which the Japan we know today came into being. It explains that Makiguchi's hybrid of secular ideals and ancient religion form the core of a dynamic legacy he bequeathed to Ikeda and Josei Toda, second president of Soka Gakkai after Makiguchi. It discusses the story of Makiguchi's life and describes his visit to the Makiguchi Hall at the Soka University.
