This bilingual book is a compilation of writings by Daisaku Ikeda, President of the Soka Gakkai International, on his thoughts and interactions with Singapore, her leaders and people over the course of his three visits to Singapore in 1988, 1995 and 2000. The author’s writings, compiled in this book, are like precious gems, attractive and glittering. These precious gems reflect the author’s genuine respect and deep admiration for Singapore and her people. Having lived through the atrocities of the Second World War at a young age, the author witnessed firsthand the cruelty of war and has since been deeply committed to peace work. This is particularly evident through his tireless efforts in meeting world leaders and exerting himself to write articles promoting the innate goodness and potential of human life, as well as the soft power of dialogue. With the publication of this book, aptly titled A Tribute to the Lion City: The Jewel of Southeast Asia, the author pays tribute to Singapore on the occasion of her golden jubilee in 2015.
