To My Friends

Nothing speaks more eloquently
than truth.
Nichiren Daishonin urges,
“You must speak with even greater
fervor [about the Mystic Law].”(*)
With pride in our hearts, let’s engage
in sincere dialogue!
From there, we can spread happiness
by helping people make a connection
to Buddhism and creating a hope-filled
“treasure realm” together.

unit experiencing the most difficulty!
Provide the greatest support to fellow
members who are struggling the most!
Let’s advance with the unity of
many in body, one in mind!

Nichiren Daishonin urges,
“Now you must strengthen
[your faith] more than ever.”(*)
Those who continue to challenge
themselves with the spirit,
“I will win over myself of yesterday!”
are the greatest victors.

We create barriers and limit ourselves
with assumptions and preconceived
notions.
If we can break through the wall we
have created in our own heart,
we can develop and expand friendships.
Now is the time to engage in courageous
dialogue!
