Summer is a time when various types of accidents take place. Be extremely cautious of fires and possible drowning situations! Try not to drive for too long, it's always good to take a break when driving in order to remain safe. By chanting powerful daimoku let's keep clear of carelessness!

Learning is the power of illuminate. To be a "leader" means to make a constant effort to study so as to continually improve ourselves. Let's try to become first-class leaders who have a profound philosophy and insight.
Never ever give up, no matter what! It's such unyielding determination and decisive action that opens the door to glorious victory. Let's start everything by chanting the type of daimoku that shakes the Buddhist gods and activates their protective powers to assist us!*
The Daishonin encourages us to always remember the debt of gratitude that we owe our father and mother.

Our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to the families who offer their homes for activities and support our kosen-rufu movement from behind the scenes. Let's together protect these homes, the treasure castles of the local community, and expand our circles of friendship and trust!
Our practice of Buddhism provides us with the supreme philosophy for achieving victory in our lives. Let's boldly and courageously share with our friends, the conviction and confidence that we have gained through our own experiences. Let's walk along the "two ways of practice and study!"*
