“Faith is rejoicing.”(*)
Let’s vibrantly share our
experience of practicing
Nichiren Buddhism!
Then joy and confidence will spread.
Let’s light a fire of determination
in the hearts of our friends!

(*)from The Recorded Lectures, also known as Niko’s Records. A compilation of Nichiren Daishonin’s lectures at Mount Minobu between 1278 and 1280, recorded by Niko, one of the six senior priests designated by the Daishonin. “Rejoicing is faith, and faith is
rejoicing.”
