Hooray for our glorious May 3rd (Soka Gakkai Day) and Hooray for SGI Mother’s Day! Just as the Daishonin's declared, "Here I will make a great vow," with the life-state of the Buddha from time without beginning, let’s all start anew, together with our youth who have the spirit of "from the indigo, an even deeper blue.”
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application
Friendship is indeed a lifelong treasure. It’s our sincere efforts to go and visit someone that develops faith and trust between us and them. Let’s share our honest concern and care for their happiness with that friend and this friend.
Traffic accidents happen when we're careless or inattentive. Using a mobile phone while driving is an absolute NO! By giving ample flexible time to the travel plan, wherever we might be going, let’s make safety our top priority at all times!
The Golden Week in Japan is just around the corner. Let's use this vacation time as an opportunity to meet and bond with people whom we don’t normally get an opportunity to interact with, such as our relatives and old friends! Initiating many new episodes of interactions with people let’s spend each day meaningfully!
When we take action for the sake of others, greater energy is brought forth from within rather than doing things just for our own sake's. This is the way of life of Soka. Together, let’s live out our lives with strong conviction and faith!
“Dig beneath your feet, there you will find a spring.” Stand your ground and work hard to fulfil your mission where you are now and achieve results! By doing so, the door to eternal happiness and victory definitely opens!
A person’s sense of responsibility to help friends with their well-being is shown by their careful attentiveness to their feelings and concerns. Are they are in good health or not? How’s their family life going? How's life at work? Let’s make every effort to become considerate leaders who make a point of being concerned about others!
This great Buddhism of the sun has spread and will continue to do so throughout the entire world via the devotion and dedication of the SGI’s solidarity. In exactly the same spirit as the Daishonin declared at the time of establishing Nichiren Buddhism, let’s continue to make unceasing efforts to plant the seeds of happiness in as many people as we possibly can, confidently, courageously and with enthusiasm!
Our faith is expressed in how we act in our daily lives. Let’s therefore try to be courteous at all times and sensible in our actions. By developing good people diplomacy with everyone in a refreshing manner, let’s shine as role models in our local community!
The essence of sharing Buddhism with others means that we confidently talk about the truth is with them. Summoning up our courage as compassion for the sake of the happiness of our friends who are struggling with problems, let’s continue to devote ourselves to achieving kosen-rufu to the very end!
