This volume continues the chronicling of the development of the Soka Gakkai during 1977, when Shin’ichi Yamamoto (Daisaku Ikeda’s pen name), in the true spirit of the mentor-disciple relationship, revisits Atsuta village, President Toda’s hometown, to inject fresh vigour in the members. Ushering in the second phase of kosen-rufu, this volume depicts the importance of the chapter as the key unit in the organisation, and the fostering of capable leaders to carry on the momentum of kosen-rufu. It is replete with the timeless guidance Shin’ichi to encourage all members, particularly the “uncrowned champions” — the dedicated deliverers of the Seikyo Shimbun.
Of all his brothers, Shin’Ichi had admired his eldest brother Kikuo the most. He had many memories of the times they had spent together. There was one memory he especially cherished, which involved a broken mirror. When Shin’Ichi was still a young boy, the mirror, part of their mother’s trousseau, had been broken by accident. From among the fragments, Shin’Ichi and Kikuo each kept a palm-sized piece, which became a personal treasure for both of them.
Part 1 of the concluding volume to SGI President Daisaku Ikeda’s 30-volume series tracks the progress of the organisation from 1979 to 1981 — Shin’ichi’s long-contemplated desire to hand over the reins of the Soka Gakkai to his successors, his dialogues for peace with world leaders and thinkers, and his counteroffensive against the actions of the priesthood and their associates.
Ringing with his spirit of “Lions stand up! The time has come to fight!”, this shared journey of mentor and members to forge new paths in the saga of kosen-rufu continues with one man’s never-be-defeated resolve to ensure world peace, no matter what.
The chapters in this book are: Great Mountain, Awaiting the Time, Launching Out, and Bells of Dawn (in part).
Residents of Berlin who had long lived as neighbours now, in just one night, had an immovable wedge driven between them.

The imminent possibility of a third world war precipitated by the Cuban Crisis involving the US and Russia in the early 60’s forms the leitmotif of the seventh volume of the New Human Revolution.
Powered by a passionate resolve to actualise his mentor’s vision of creating a world where a culture of peace and respect for humanity would pervade, Daisaku Ikeda, the protagonist and author, made sure that each goal he made on becoming President three years ago was realised one by one. The most important of course was to preserve the spirit of his predecessors. Determined to cut anything that diluted this spirit, Ikeda ran with full speed alone, believing that scores of runners would follow.
On the sixth anniversary of his mentor and second President Josei Toda’s death, the protagonist and author Daisaku Ikeda once again articulated a deeply imbibed commitment to fulfil his mentor’s vision for world peace. This volume traces how issues of people-centric governance are encapsulated in the movement to realise kosen-rufu which places utmost importance on the individual and on sharing people’s suffering. President Ikeda believed that the fundamental distrust of human beings stemmed from the absence of a life philosophy that elucidates the reality of human existence, and so was determined to bring about a hew humanism through Nichiren Daishonin’s buddhism. “Kosen-rufu is that noble movement that recognises the buddha nature inherent in each individual and brings people together an a bond of mutual trust,” he said.
Unlocking the mysteries of birth and death helps us confront the fundamental questions of human existence: why are we born? Can we avoid sickness and suffering in life? What happens to us after we die?
