To My Friends

As Nichiren Daishonin states,
“the more one praises [the
blessings of the Lotus Sutra,] the more
one’s own blessings will increase.(*)
Let’s wholeheartedly praise the noble
efforts of our fellow members.
Our Soka family is advancing in
harmonious friendship!

Let’s go to our friends with courage.
When we take action, the protective
forces of the universe will also be
moved to action.
If we meet in person, we can make a
heart to heart connection.
Let’s engage in sincere and genuine
dialogue, without pretense or guile.
