In order to foster youthful successors who shares the great vow for worldwide kosen-rufu with their mentor and put that vow into action, SGM will be holding “I Seek Sensei” youth seminars for district and above youth leaders nationwide. The training course, which will be held four times this year, carries the theme “The Role Model of the Oneness of Mentor and Disciple.”
The first of these courses was held on January 21 at the SGM Mentor and Disciple Peace Hall (MDPH) in Wisma Kebudayaan SGM (WKSGM), with the participation of around 100 leaders from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan. During the course, they visited the Victory Room, Shared Struggle Room and the Mentor and Disciple Room, where they learnt about the struggles of the three founding presidents of the Soka Gakkai and the importance of youth becoming successors to their work.
Prior to attending this course, the participants studied the books The Path of the Mentor published by SGM, and selections from “The Wisdom for Creating Happiness and Peace” series published in Flow.
