Let’s always be thinking: “What is it that I can do to help make people feel happy and at ease?” And then let’s chant everyday, from the depths of our being, towards realising it. Let’s become “leaders” who are trustworthy and sincere and who are forever brimming with humanity!
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application
The life of a person who refuses to accept defeat will always shine brilliantly in the end. In the midst of enduring the constant daily challenges of life, a life of true fulfilment can definitely be found. Continue steadfastly on your chosen path!
Learning is a light. Those who continue to educate themselves are brimming with youthful energy, and naturally keep on improving their spiritual growth. Let’s chronicle a history of personal development by consistently striving to educate ourselves!
Let’s expand our circle of friends! Meeting new people helps us to change and improve and, at the same time, enriches our lives. Let’s, engage all the more so in conversation and form those heart-to-heart connections!
It’s through constantly having a heart of appreciation that we develop a great human character. To all of you who are about to debut on a new stage in life, be determined to live out your lives by repaying your debts of gratitude (to all who have supported you.) Let’s all lead triumphant lives to the very end!
Taking action with lightening speed. Responding to situations with sincerity and true care. These are the areas where a leader’s true sense of responsibility can be seen. I hope that you all become great leaders of humanism!
March 16th, “Kosen-rufu Day”, is close by, the opportunity for us to renew the spirit of “from the indigo, an even deeper blue." With the passion and enthusiasm to carry out our great vow for kosen-rufu, the courage to break through any and all kinds of obstacles, and the great solidarity that creates history, let’s help to expand and develop our SGI Youth’s strength and energy into society!
If we take a passive attitude towards things, our true strength won’t manifest itself! Let's start each and every day by chanting with a strong determined resolve! Let’s make up our own minds that we will definitely be victorious!
“For the sake of every single person’s happiness. To treasure each and every person.” -- This is what the spirit of the SGI is! Today also, by doing all that is possible, and more, to understand the sufferings and concerns of our fellow members who are facing hard times (and chanting for them and with them), let’s offer as much warm heartfelt encouragement as we can.
All members of the SGI family have the type of faith by which we can bring force to change poison into medicine. With “courage” instead of “misery and grief” and with a sense of “mission” rather than “destiny,” let’s open up a path to happiness for our self and others!
