To our talented members of the student division who are at the helm of our movement of Soka in a new age! By always keeping the spirit of mentor and disciple in our hearts, lets courageously engage in dialogue and create a golden history of expansion and development!
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application
A person of courage is bright. A person of belief is cheerful. Come, today, too, let’s make a fresh new departure by chanting daimoku with the great vow to achieve kosen-rufu! Let’s live each and every day breathing inspiration and vitality into our environment.
The growth and development of young people is the very hope for the future! Through the chanting and warm encouragement of the Men’s and Women's division members, let's create the current of an ever-expansive river of capable young people!
A person of courage shines in the forefront. A leader must always try to take the initiative in activities — this is the ironclad rule for kosen-rufu’s advancement. Today again, together with our respect-worthy fellow members, let’s busy ourselves on the forefront of activities where we each have our own unique and noble missions to fulfil.
To all of our Men's Division members, who protect and support everyone in the Soka family, thank you so much for always being there for us! It is most certain that all the Buddhas and Buddhist gods are praising all of your struggles and efforts even if they are not seen or recognised by anyone else.
Let’s praise each other for all the courageous efforts we make to share this Buddhism with others and expand our circle of friendship. Whenever and wherever let’s always show our respect for each other, it’s by such actions that waves of joy and fresh new advancement are created!
Let’s participate in SGI activities with our Future Division members!* It’s through experiencing joy together and learning together that our faith and practice is passed on to the next generation.
If one person in the family stands up in faith, the entire family is sure to walk on the path of happiness, too. I hope that you can be that person who shines the brilliant sun of hope on your family! Shine as the pillar of happiness and harmony!
Lofty aspirations make for a lofty life. As long as we are alive let's dedicate ourselves to the great vow for kosen-rufu. Let's engrave a glorious history without any regrets!
The most important point about encouraging someone is to listen rather than to speak. First and foremost let’s try to grasp what the situation is. The courage and strength to move ahead comes from the warmth of someone's empathy.
