This chapter provides a detailed description of the author's observations about the Soka Gakkai movement in Brazil. It suggests that what most powerfully links Brazil to all his other Gakkai experiences is the people because they are all “modern lions” of Nichiren Buddhism. It also describes a Japanese Brazilian couple who epitomize Gakkai spirituality in its valiantly mystical mode.
