This year marks the 50th anniversary of the SGI 3.16 Kosen-Rufu Day. On March 16, 1958, Soka Gakkai President Josei Toda rallied 6,000 youths of Japan, and declared that meeting as a dress rehearsal for kosen-rufu (peace and happiness for all people). On that occasion, Mr Toda passed the baton of kosen-rufu to the Youth Division, specifically to Mr Ikeda (presently the President of Soka Gakkai International [SGI]) . Hence, the spirit of 3.16 is that of the youth standing up to accept the responsibility of working towards world peace and happiness for all humanity. March 16 or 3.16 came to be known as “Kosen-Rufu Day” and thereafter serve as a day for all the SGI members  to renew our pledge to build the eternal, indestructible foundation for kosen-rufu.
