To My Friends

Nichiren Daishonin asserts,
“If you care anything about your personal
security, you should first of all pray for
order and tranquillity throughout the four
quarters of the land, should you not?”(*)
This is the spirit of spreading the humanistic
philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism.
Let’s aim to create happiness for oneself
and others, dedicating ourselves to
chanting daimoku as a foremost priority.
