“This February Shakubuku Campaign* is about challenging myself to break through my self-imposed limitations to share this Buddhism with others!” The Daishonin teaches, "The seeds of Buddhahood sprout as a result of conditions."** Let's courageously engage ourselves in dialogue with others and continue helping as many people as we can to form a connection with Buddhism! Let's happily create a golden history of our own by meeting people and cultivating new friendships.
