To My Friends

Nichiren Daishonin states,
“By observing a single flower in bloom,
one can predict the advent of spring.”
One flower that blooms fragrantly
in the bitter cold wind inspires
everyone with hope and joy.
Let’s gloriously expand our “flower garden”
of friendship with the “stand alone spirit”!
