We have entered the season
of severely frigid weather.
Bundle up and fully protect
yourself from the cold!
Take utmost precautions to
avoid falling on icy roads
and uneven ground.
Prevent accidents before they
happen!

I express my deepest appreciation
to the volunteer staff who support
the advance of the SGI!
As Nichiren Daishonin states,
“Where there is unseen virtue,
there will be visible reward.”(*)
Let’s stay healthy and free of accidents
and end the year in triumph!

At the last discussion meeting of
the year, let’s congratulate one another
on the earnest struggles we have waged
with unwavering determination, and
share our personal experiences of
practicing Buddhism!
Let’s not forget to extend our courtesy
and appreciation to our neighbors
and to those who provide their
homes for meetings.

Be ever vigilant and on high alert
for deceit and fraud.
If something seems suspicious,
don’t try to determine it yourself
but always consult with people
you trust around you.
Let’s remember to “be millions of times
more careful than ever,” as the
Daishonin cautions.(*)
