This is the perfect time to
reacquaint ourselves with relatives
and old friends.
With thoughtful concern for others and
sincere actions, let’s spend a fruitful
and meaningful summer!
Note: In Soka Gakkai in Japan, the first several weeks of August and other holiday periods are literally called “a time for friendship.” It has been referred to as “summer” here.
