Nichiren Daishonin says,
‘If the parents of a thousand children are
praised, those thousand children will rejoice.”(*)
Let’s praise each person for their efforts.
The torch of hope that has been lit in their
hearts will become the source of light that
illuminates their surroundings and
everyone around them.
(*)”The Drum at the Gate of Thunder,” WND 1, p. 949
“A Buddha is a child, and the
Lotus Sutra, its parents. If the parents of a thousand children are praised, those thousand children will rejoice. If one makes offerings
to the parents, one makes offerings
to their thousand children as well.”
