Adversity is an opportunity
to make a dynamic leap forward!
Nichiren Daishonin states,
“The wise will rejoice while
the foolish will retreat.”(*)
Brimming with powerful life force,
let’s fully take on challenges and
show actual proof of “changing
poison into medicine”!

(*)”The Three Obstacles and Four Devils,” WND, p. 637)

NOTE: “Changing poison into medicine” is the principle that earthly desires and suffering can be transformed into benefit and enlightenment by virtue of the power of the Law.

Influenza is running rampant!
Let’s rigorously prevent succumbing
to infection by regularly washing
our hands, gargling and wearing
surgical masks.(*)
Let’s take wise measures to
protect our health.

(*)In Japan and some other densely populated Asian countries, it is social etiquette to wear a surgical mask when one has a cold or flu to prevent spreading the virus. It is also worn to keep from catching cold or the flu.

A person’s true nature is revealed
by what they do when no one
is watching.
Be courageous individuals brimming
with the “stand alone spirit” who
steadily pray and take action
for the sake of kosen-rufu!
