To My Friends

Nichiren Daishonin states,
“Both oneself and others together
will take joy in their possession
of wisdom and compassion.”(*)
A boundless wellspring of love exists
in the lives of all people.
Buddhism enables us to manifest
this boundless love!

Nichiren Daishonin says,
“[A tree] will not topple if it has
a firm stake to hold it up.”(*)
As long as there are people
who lend their empathy and
a helping hand, a person will
absolutely not be defeated.
Let’s all be a strong support
for our friends!
