To My Friends

The Soka Gakkai is an organization for
sharing Nichiren Buddhism with others.
Let’s initiate conversations with people
with whom we have a connection,
sowing seeds of faith with dialogue
that brings smiles to their faces and
inspires them with conviction.
Have confidence that the seeds you sow
will definitely bloom!

The value of the springtime of
youth is not determined by one’s
position or superficial posturing.
Those who are undergoing training
in the young men’s division “academy”,
chronicle a golden personal history
as you embrace in your heart
the supreme philosophy of life!

The accumulation of small
efforts will create a great self.
Break through each wall of resistance,
telling yourself, “I will try one more time,”
“I will challenge myself five more minutes.”

Kosen-rufu advances with the
power of the voice.
Let your voice resonate with
heartfelt words that penetrate
deep into the hearts of friends,
at times like melodious music,
based on earnest prayer!
