To My Friends

We are endowed with:
daimoku like a powerful lion’s roar;
the strategy of the Lotus Sutra; and
unity based on mutual support and
encouragement.
The traditional month of February is
upon us! It’s time to break through
walls of obstacles!

Amidst our hectic daily lives, let’s open and
read the gosho!
Even if it is only “a single sentence or phrase,”(*)
if we earnestly read the Daishonin’s writings,
our hearts will expand and we will be inspired
with courage!

”Could not this illness…
be the Buddha’s design?”(*)
We are able to vastly develop our
life condition when we face up
to adversity.
Let’s challenge our circumstances
with powerful resolve!

“And could not this illness of your husband’s be the Buddha’s design, because the Vimalakīrti and Nirvanasutras both teach that sick people will surely attain Buddhahood? Illness gives rise to the resolve to attain the way.”

Kosen-rufu is about meeting people.
Let’s pray specifically and thoroughly,
clearly determining with whom, when,
where and how, and engage in dialogue
that deepens friendship!

The collective strength generated by a solidly
united group is many times more powerful
than the sum of its individuals.
Let’s find people’s good points and enable
them to give full play to their potential.
If we pray together and are united in spirit,
we can manifest more power and strength
than we ever imagined!
