That proves how crooked SGI-USA is financially. Any "non-profit" org that refuses to publish openly its AUDITED financial statements, does not deserve $1 in donations from anyone. Not a cent. And of course, any closed-room financial papers would be some SGI-USA disinformation, vague pie-graphs and things like that. That sounds like a Scientology scam, to show you fake-docs in a room.

There are actually reports of SGI and Mitsubishi misdeeds, as well as reports that SGI's main financing bank is The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi. Of course, the problem is SGI keeps all of their finances secret, so only Ikeda and his family know where the money is, and where it went.

Actually, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and SGI are a nice match. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries say they are going "Green" and a partial weapons list is below. The difference with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and SGI, is when MHI tells their "Greenwashing" lies, no rational person is going to believe them, and understands its just corporate propaganda to maximize profits and t

SGI wants to try to hook people in for 3 years to SGI, because they know if they can hook someone in for 3 years, then they might get them for 10-to-Life. also, if the person walks away after 3 years, then at least SGI got 3 years of dues and unpaid-labor out of them. Yes, with SGI, you can lead the 'spiritual path' without having to renounce greed, lust and avarice. That says it a

Well from memory, Ching Hai was originally talking about the 2012 End of the World long ago, just as a way to bilk her followers of more money. Then she extended it again, as predicted, then extended it even more. Its very unfortunate that followers of these false Guru's don't realize that their Guru lies for a living. Its hard for them to imagine someone lying so self-consciously

Sure people can choose to treat the image with respect, and dispose of it as they see fit. Or they can just chuck it out. Its up to them, no need for any guilt for either decision.

QuoteFindingmywaytodayI am sorry for my ignorance, but is one an SGI member as long as you have an SGI Gohonzon? I no longer attend meetings, and I am rarely called. I am connected to a district, but no one asks about coming to chant with me, so that is fine. Am I still a member, as long as I have a Gohonzon from the SGI? SGI plays mind-games with their members.

Also, for many people who are NOT into SGI, their mind can still "catastrophize". that is, for neutral, or unknown future events, the mind seems to naturally go to the negative scenario, and imagine it might happen, thus making the person anxious. So a person is on a new job, doing a very good job, yet their self-doubt creeps into their minds, and they start fearing they are going t

Thanks for the first hand insider report. Its interesting how some of those inside a cultish sect, who have doubts about the Dear Leader, will rationalize the Gurus "crazy" behavior by saying its just a way to get a message across, or something like that. You hear many times from Vegans who cross-promote Ching Hai, that even though Ching Hai is manipulating people, she is doing it &

Have known some people who are in SGI who have some "issues" in the mental health area, and some of them really went overboard with the SGI-chanting. One person was chanting, and not getting what they want out of life, and things were getting worse. So this person was getting more and more anxious, and started to chant longer, and faster and faster. Eventually the person had a mental

Quotesimplify The trouble is that the chanting actually helps to suspend one's critical faculties, so it is very hard to really look at the evidence unless you stop chanting. $GI has very clever techniques to make sure it's members keep chanting 'no matter what' - which means they are prevented from thinking critically. There is no question, it is a hard FACT, that SGI in

Yes, it could be a type of cultish apologetics, where they try to reframe the cultish group simply as a "religion". Or the article writer could just be incredibly naive or blind to the facts of reality? SGI is mainly a gigantic global financial corporation controlled by the Ikeda family, who are multibillionaires.

Yes! Give SGI $10,000 a year and you will be rich!! You see, this is how it works. You work hard at your job, and then you take your 10K and give it to Ikeda, so Ikeda can dump another 10K into his pile of billions of dollars. You can never have enough billions of dollars, Ikeda knows that. By giving Ikeda 10K a year, you have 10K less, so you are richer! Don't invest that 10K your

Read the fine print of the contract or ticket. See what it says about refunds. First, use the carrot perhaps. Appeal to the LGAT leaders sense of "honor" by having the "integrity" to refund your money for a service he did not offer. ...When that fails...and it will fail.... If a person does NOT give a service for a fee paid, they have broken the contract. So a customer

Another classic LGAT scam. Notice all the exact same patterns, banning note-taking, breaking people down psychologically, verbal abuse, scams around not refunding of money. All the same stuff. If someone who has sold you a service is violating their agreement, a Chargeback on the credit card can be used. Or an application in small claims court, to get the refund. Make it harder and more

From experience, when SGI members are doing this, using the lure of sex to try and convert you to SGI fake-Buddhism, they consciously are not in fact doing it only for SGI. They seem to be doing it for what they believe is their own "karma".
