Daisaku Ikeda, honorary president of the Soka Gakkai, passed away recently at the age of 95.

After becoming the third president of the Soka Gakkai in 1960, Ikeda promoted the expansion of the organization. He increased the number of its followers to a nominal 8.27 million households, thereby making it one of the largest religious organizations in Japan.

In addition, he was undoubtedly one of the leading figures of the Showa and Heisei eras. For one, he formed the Komeito Party and came to exert great influence on the political world. Moreover, he strove to promote friendship between Japan and China.

On the other hand, Ikeda and the Soka Gakkai have not been without controversy.
