To those who are actively involved in fostering the members of our Future Division our heartfelt gratitude for everything you do. Your sincere and noble actions are securing the future foundations of kosen-rufu. Let’s forever advance along the path of glory together with our young and most treasured friends!
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application
Complaining erases our good fortune while on the other hand chanting daimoku of appreciation builds up our happiness that lasts for eternity. If we make the effort to change ourselves so as to elevate our life condition, the circumstances and surroundings that we are in now are certain to become better!
Our sworn friends of the men’s division, are all invincible fearless lions. With the pride of being our golden pillars of the organisation, let’s strive to triumph over all the challenges that we face, and courageously play out a drama of victory through faith!
The Daishonin teaches us (the principle of three thousand realms in a single moment of life), “One’s body and mind at a single moment pervade the entire realm of phenomena." The power of daimoku is as vast as the entire universe. By chanting daimoku with the vow to achieve kosen-rufu, let's create a surge of increasing fellow Bodhisattvas of the Earth. Let's strive together with our young friends all around the world!
We practice the Buddhism of the true cause. Everyday is a fresh new start. From this very moment, right where we are, by beginning with what we decide to do ourselves, let's take one courageous step forwards to take on the challenges that we now face!
Let’s try to make our district the world’s best for raising capable leaders and creating hope! It’s such determined daimoku that we chant together that brings about great momentum and unity and at the same time opens up the door to victory and success.
We arise again today with our SGI organisational publication(s)! Our heartfelt appreciation and respect to those local people who are in charge of their promotion. Let's aim at spreading our philosophy of humanism and illuminate society with happiness and truth!
Let’s dedicate ourselves wholeheartedly to treasuring each person. This is the very heart of Soka. From our discussion meetings, let’s spread a solidarity of encouragement where each person is inspired to shine with lively enthusiasm!
Let's always cheer on and warmly encourage our youth division members who are endeavouring to expand the kosen-rufu movement by sharing this Buddhism and its philosophy with others! The new era is in their hands, it is their great actions that brings an abundance of great joy and hope to one and all.
It's the strong resolution of a leader that determines the degree of advancement of an organisation. Let’s together make very clear goals, and with vibrant life force, let’s begin a grand march infused with the spirit of "many in body, one in mind!"
