If we share with one another
our personal experiences
[of practicing Nichiren Buddhism]
we can spark a groundswell of joy.
Let’s warmly applaud the steady, quiet actions
and efforts reflecting the unique diversity
and beauty of each person, based on the
Buddhist principle of “cherry, plum, peach
and damson.”(*)

(*)Buddhism teaches the principle of “cherry, plum, peach and damson blossoms,” which elucidates the unique diversity and beauty of all living entities. (cf OTT p. 200)
