Student Division Sponsors Lecture on a Warless East Asia

Professor Yamamoto talks about peace and security in East Asia

On March 24, the Soka Gakkai Student Division sponsored its second lecture in a series at the Josei Toda International Center in Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo. Speaking on "The Path to a Warless East Asia Community," Professor Takehiko Yamamoto of Waseda University emphasized the importance of establishing a system of security, safety and stability toward strengthening a sense of community among East Asian nations. He suggested that, in this regard, a philosophy of humanism and sensitivity to others' pain, such as that advocated by SGI President Daisaku Ikeda, is key.
