The Daishonin states,
“People can definitely attain their goal,
if they are of one mind.(*)
Unity will increase our strength
by twofold.
Let’s unite our hearts as one
and advance toward
kosen-rufu and life’s
lofty purpose.

To My Friends

To the “youthful lions”
of the Soka-han and Gajo-kai(*)
volunteer support groups
who have risen up to shoulder
the new era!
Now is the time to challenge yourselves
to surmount walls of looming obstacles!
Record a history of victories during
the springtime of your youth!

January 13, 2016

A severe cold spell continues.
Bundle up and fully protect
yourself from the frigid weather
and make a habit of gargling
and washing your hands to
prevent catching a cold.
Pray strongly and powerfully
to maintain robust health!

To My Friends

The district men’s and women’s leaders
take responsibility for the happiness
of the people in our communities and
of our fellow members.
I extend my heartfelt appreciation for
their noble, dedicated struggles as
they stride along in the forefront
of our kosen-rufu movement!

To My Friends

The young women, “sisters of
the Kayokai(*),” are holding
general meetings redolent
with hopes and dreams!
Nichiren Daishonin writes that
“women open the gateway.(**)”
The path to peace is opened
when women engage in dialogue.
Let’s spread hope and friendship!
Let’s provide the young women with
warm support for the great success
their meetings!
