Our young people, who assume the responsibility of kosen-rufu, grow and develop especially through their actual practice. Let’s, therefore, chant daimoku, talk and take action together with them! Let’s take every possible opportunity to help raise our younger and newer members so that they will become even more capable than we are!
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application
When we speak to our friends, sharing the philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism with them, both the speaker and listener are brilliantly adorned with boundless and immeasurable benefits. Let’s tirelessly devote ourselves to dialogue based on courage and sincerity to realise happiness for oneself and others!
Privately-owned activity centres of our organisation, are treasured castles of kosen-rufu in our local community. Whenever we attend meetings at such places, let’s be very careful about the neighbours, in particular about where we leave our bicycles and cars. Let’s also try to keep the loud conversations down on the streets nearby.
True prayer means that we make a vow. “I'm going to make this happen, no matter what!" Such unwavering determination becomes the beginning of the real drama of our human revolution. Let’s chant sonorous daimoku with firm strong conviction!
Here comes autumn, a time for fostering dedicated capable members for Kosen-rufu! Let’s wholeheartedly and sincerely support those who are challenging themselves in taking the annual Buddhist exams (on the philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism and background of the Soka Gakkai.) Through engraving the writings of Nichiren Daishonin deeply in our hearts with our fellow members, let’s refresh our determination and vow for kosen-rufu!
Today is Japan Press Holiday. We will be back tomorrow.
Now is that time (in the month) to hold our most lively and vibrant discussion meetings! Giving each and every participant a chance to shine, let’s enthusiastically share with each other, our personal experiences and adventures in faith. The Daishonin states, '"Joy' means that oneself and others together experience joy." Let’s sing, with joy, an anthem of life that celebrates our being and working together!
Nichiren Buddhism teaches the principle of “cherry, plum, peach or apricot blossom." Each of us has our own “wall” that we need to surmount. Every one of us has a unique mission that only we can fulfil. By always making an effort to encourage and inspire each other, let’s continue to constantly challenge ourselves and advance together!
Let’s try to attend the video broadcasts of the headquarters leaders' meeting together with our youthful successors. Supporting each other as members of the SGI family, let’s construct an eternal foundation of growth, creating lots of golden memories together!
To all our fellow members who take time out of their busy schedules to help out as staff for our SGI activities, thank you all so very much. Your noble, diligent efforts ensure that you are adorned with brilliant, boundless benefits! Let’s all be sure to express our appreciation and praise to them for their dedication and hard work!
