To My Friends

The Daishonin stated,
“The ray of light from the daimoku
reaches all the way
to the hell of incessant suffering
and makes it possible for [the deceased] to attain Buddhahood then and there.”(*)
The connections we have created
through the Mystic Law
are untrammeled and eternal.
Let’s shine vibrantly as families
brimming with happiness!

When you transform your heart,
your everyday actions will undergo
a change and you can even transform
your environment.
The creation of an ideal world begins
with the metamorphosis of a single individual.
