Read full description of the books Unlocking the Mysteries of Birth Death: . . . And Everything in Between, A Buddhist View Life:This book has dramatically changed my attitude towards death, and therefore my approach to life. Initially I was somewhat overwhelmed by the title, but I would urge everyone to read this book - it's not as difficult as you might think. Daisaku Ikeda's deep understanding of Nichiren's teachings and his great knowledge of the Lotus Sutra is at points spellbinding, but his eloquence and skill with language truly makes some of the most initially challenging concepts very comprehendible. Daisaku Ikeda draws upon his wealth of knowledge of this world as a whole, from science to history to illustrate and explain many of the core Buddhist teachings. This book has been a truly fascinating read, it has deepened my understanding of many complex teachings and has therefore deepened my faith and resolve in my practice. I have never read a book twice, but I feel I may read this again, not because it failed in being accessible, but because one could tell Daisaku Ikeda's every word was chosen with complete care, I feel if read again I would find more to learn, and deepen my understanding even further.
Read information about the authorDaisaku Ikeda is a Buddhist philosopher, peacebuilder, educator, author and poet. He is the third president of the Soka Gakkai lay Buddhist organization and the founding president of the Soka Gakkai International (SGI), which is today one of the world's largest and most diverse lay Buddhist organizations, promoting a philosophy of character development and social engagement for peace.
Ikeda is the founder of the Soka (value-creation) schools, a nondenominational school system based on an ideal of fostering each student's unique creative potential and cultivating an ethic of peace, social contribution and global consciousness. The school system runs from kindergarten through graduate study and includes a university in Tokyo, Japan, and another in California, U.S.A.
Ikeda is a staunch proponent of dialogue as the foundation of peace. Since the 1970s he has pursued dialogue with a wide range of individuals around the world in political, cultural, educational and academic fields. Over 50 of these have been published in book form, with people such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Elise Boulding, Joseph Rotblat and André Malraux. In furtherance of his vision of fostering dialogue and solidarity for peace, Ikeda has founded a number of independent, nonprofit research institutes that develop cross-cultural, interdisciplinary collaboration on diverse issues: the Boston Research Center for the 21st Century, the Toda Institute for Global Peace and Policy Research and the Institute of Oriental Philosophy. The Min-On Concert Association and the Tokyo Fuji Art Museum promote mutual understanding and friendship between different national cultures through the arts.
Ikeda is a prolific writer who has published more than 100 works, ranging from Buddhist philosophy to biographical essays, poetry, children's stories and photographic collections.
