Makiguchi had until this time been General Director and Chief of Research, but was now formally appointed President, with Toda as General Director. The organization was enlarged, with twelve directors and ten divisions including a Planning Division, and a new platform was adopted. The new platform did not state that the organization's aim was educational reform, proclaiming that the organization was committed to social reform based on religion, thus re-establishing the Soka Kyoiku Gakkai as a body whose primary function was as a religious movement.
"The organization seeks to promote the well-being of the nation and its people by reforming education, religion and lifestyle, and by revealing the virtue of genuine loyalty and piety based on the Three Great Secret Laws, the greatest, loftiest way of living..." Further, people introduced to Buddhism by Gakkai members were considered to automatically become Gakkai members, rather than being registered as adherents of Nichiren Shoshu, affirming the independence of the organization from the Nichiren Shoshu priesthood.
