Let’s treasure each person.
This is the quintessence of all.
Let’s greet those who gather
for the discussion meeting
with deep regard and with
“the same respect [one]
would a Buddha.”(*)

(phrase from Chapter 28 of the Lotus Sutra: You should rise and greet
him from afar, showing him the same respect you would a Buddha.”)
