To My Friends

At the last discussion meeting of
the year, let’s congratulate one another
on the earnest struggles we have waged
with unwavering determination, and
share our personal experiences of
practicing Buddhism!
Let’s not forget to extend our courtesy
and appreciation to our neighbors
and to those who provide their
homes for meetings.

Be ever vigilant and on high alert
for deceit and fraud.
If something seems suspicious,
don’t try to determine it yourself
but always consult with people
you trust around you.
Let’s remember to “be millions of times
more careful than ever,” as the
Daishonin cautions.(*)
