In the Soka Gakkai, everyone
has a starring role.
Rather than one person taking
100 steps forward, let’s aim
for 100 people taking 1 step
forward together!
There is always a victorious
drama that only you can
play out.

Nichiren Daishonin admonishes,
“You must build your reputation
on the Lotus Sutra and give yourself
up to it.”(*)
Let’s send forth a fresh breeze of
encouragement and growth!
