About this Item

Chapter Summaries Chapter 1: Great Mountain On April 24, 1979, Shin’ichi resigns as the third Soka Gakkai president to protect his fellow members from attacks by the priesthood. Chapter 2: Awaiting the Time Barred from attending large gatherings by the priesthood, Shin’ichi visits members at their homes, gives personal guidance, and uses his creativity to find other way to encourage members. After a year, in April 1980, he feels it time to mount a counteroffensive. Chapter 3: Launching Out After his fifth visit to China in April 1980, Shin’ichi launches a fresh struggle to encourage members throughout Japan and the world. Throughout the year and into the next, he travels overseas repeatedly to North, Central, and South America, Europe, and the Soviet Union.

Chapter 5: Cheers of Victory On November 10, 1981, Shin’ichi declares that he will take the lead once again, thus launching the counteroffensive in earnest.
