Young men undergoing training
in the Soka-han and Gajokai(*)
volunteer groups are taking
the lead in sharing Nichiren
Buddhism with others.
Each one of them is a remarkable,
capable individual.
Let’s lend our wholehearted support
and encouragement so they can
mark a brilliant starting point in faith.
