Nichiren Daishonin admonishes,
“You must simply make up your mind.”(*)
Let’s deeply determine to widely share the
humanistic ideals of Nichiren Buddhism for
the sake of creating a peaceful and flourishing
society in which our friends’ lives can shine
with happiness.
Let’s advance bravely and boldly, without
giving in to halfheartedness!
