The Daishonin encourages us to
“believe continuously without ever regressing.”(*)
We can strengthen and forge our lives through
steady efforts in the basics of faith, practice and study.
Let’s continue to have faith like flowing water!

(*)In the Upper House election held in Japan on Sun. July 10, 2016, all 7 candidates fielded by the Komeito party in single-seat districts won and another seven were voted into office on the proportional representation ballot. The Soka Gakkai
in Japan provides electoral support to the Komeito Party, a coalition partner of the present government. The party aims to give political voice to the most vulnerable and underrepresented members of society, with policies promoting peace, social security,
education, the environment and human rights. The Soka Gakkai does not provide financial backing to any candidate or political party. Outside Japan, SGI organizations do not engage in politics.
