To My Friends

“Ones mind from the very beginning
has been a Buddha.”(*)
Our heart (mind) is endowed with
boundless power!
No matter what, chant daimoku.
Let’s advance together with the
women of Soka with
“[Nam-myoho-renge-kyo …] the
greatest of all joys.(*)

(*)The Orally Transmitted Teachings, p. 212
Full excerpt: Great joy [is what] one experiences when one understands for the first time that ones mind from the very beginning has been a Buddha. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is the greatest of all joys.

Tentative translation of “To My Friends” published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda’s recent guidance.
