To My Friends

to attend SGI meetings.
A few thoughtful words can spark
the beginning of hope-filled progress
and advance.
In the SGI, we are all protagonists!

Nichiren Daishonin asserts,
“Those who are imbued with the Lotus Sutra
will invariably become Buddhas.”(*)
Let’s engrave the gosho deep in our hearts
and continue to chant daimoku!
Together, let’s exert ourselves in the
“two ways of practice and study”!

of “substituting faith for wisdom.”

Let’s spend a value-creative day
expanding kosen-rufu!
