To My Friends

If we develop a strong spirit that is
unshakable under any circumstances,
we can be abundantly happy!
That is the purpose of our faith and practice.
Let’s develop an indestructible life by
wholeheartedly dedicating ourselves
to the basics of faith, practice and study!

–WORDS OF THE WEEK–
“The benefits to be gained by reciting
the five characters of Myoho-renge-kyo
[month after month, day after day]
are great indeed.”(*)
Let’s advance, chanting daimoku
infused with our great vow for
kosen-rufu, resounding with the
rhythm of a galloping white horse.
Let’s create value through prayer!

Let’s rid ourselves of preconceptions.
We should not definitively assume who
a person is simply by their circumstances,
title or even their ideologies.
We practice Buddhism to be able to see
a person just as they are and make a
heart to heart connection.
