To My Friends

Gaining understanding is power.
Let’s sincerely listen to the fears
and concerns others have and
engage them in respectful and
friendly conversation.
From there, we can create great
waves of understanding.

Remember,
“Buddhism primarily concerns itself
with victory or defeat.”(*)

Then, let’s dynamically expand
kosen-rufu with vibrant life force!

―WORDS OF THE WEEK―
June, the month of Soka women,
will be upon us.
Soka women are the foremost
fellowship of “suns” in the world
that “wipe out the darkness of
living beings.”(*)
Tap your bright optimism, wisdom
and cheerfulness and bathe your
friends’ hearts with warm rays
of dialogue.

(*)“This Person Advances through the World,” WND 1, 1011
“The “Supernatural Powers” chapter states, ‘As the light of the sun and moon can banish all obscurity and gloom, so this person as he advances through the world can wipe out the darkness of living beings.’”
