To My Friends

If you are a leader for kosen-rufu,
listen well to what your fellow
members have to say with patience
and the capacity to support and
embrace them with warmth and
understanding.
Be the sun of encouragement and
inspiration and illuminate everyone
with the light of happiness!

Chant resounding daimoku like a
powerful lion’s roar and never be
defeated by the “devil” sickness!
