Let’s take to heart the
Daishonin’s words,

will never forsake it!”(*)
Those who carry out their vow
throughout their lifetime
are the true victors!
Let’s lead lives brimming
with adventure and drama!

The Daishonin states,
“One who has fallen to the ground
recovers and rises up from the ground.”(*)

To My Friends

Members of the Housing Complex and
Community Divisions(*) are exerting
themselves in various summer events.
I express my appreciation for their
invaluable contributions that are
cultivating bonds between people
in our beloved neighborhoods.

(*)Since the mid-1950s multi-story public housing complexes have sprung up in large numbers in Japan. Both divisions were created in Japan with a goal of promoting trust and friendship within the community and among neighbors.
