We took an oath with Mr. Williams to learn the Kaimoku Sho and to memorize the entire Gosho.

Willy Davis Dodger

Willie Davis was a member of Nichiren Shoshu and was featured in a Sports Illustrated Magazine speaking of his Buddhist practice.

Mr. Williams took us Brass Band and Koteketai to the Dodger baseball game on this day. It was really a new day of bringing true happy spirit back to baseball. The Gakkai spirit shook the Stadium as we shouted unified AAO’s. It was really fantastic when we saw the scoreboard light up with General Director William’s name. What a great moment. The same day there was an old timer’s game.

I had the great opportunity to make Mr. Williams a Thank You Card. It said, “To our General Director Mr. Williams. Thank you for the encouragement. AAO! AAO!AAO! The Baseball Game Was Great!

On the second page it read, “To our master President Ikeda “We will do our best” and we’ll learn the Gosho too.” Mr. Williams signed the card. Really fantastic!
