Cherish the time you spend
with your children!
Parents, do gongyo and chant daimoku
together with your children and
share your dreams and memories
as a family.
Spend the winter holidays
strengthening your bonds and
teaching your children about
how the family came to practice
Nichiren Buddhism!

lotus flowers blooming in muddy water.(*)
Just like the lotus that blooms in the

proof of happiness in the harsh reality
of life!
Daimoku is the foundation.
