The original song of Forever Sensei, "Kyomo Genkide" (Today Too, in High Spirits) was first performed by the Shirayuri Chorus at
the Soka Gakkai women division leaders' meeting at the Nihon University Auditorium in Ryogoku, Tokyo, in August 1968.
President Ikeda said, "This is a wonderful song. Let me take the lead." Dancing in a graceful manner, President Ikeda took the
lead with composure. Filled with dynamism and passion, this song became popular among SGI members throughout the world.
