The rising sun of the people’s victory begins with the members of Hokuriku and their spirit of ”many in body but one in mind.” Today is a new challenge. Let’s fulfill our vow and lead a victorious life!
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application.
Respectworthy fellow members of Shikoku who brim with aspiration for kosen-rufu – Be genuine young revolutionaries! Charge ahead with all your might for the sake of truth and justice; then give jubilant cheers as champions of the people.
All the struggles we undergo for the sake of kosen-rufu will transform into our greatest source of happiness. This is the true pleasure and benefit of practicing Buddhism. Let's put ourselves on the correct orbit of faith so that we may advance courageously and resolutely on the path to great happiness!
The people's sun for victory will rise from Hokuriku, where our fellow members are advancing in perfect unity with the spirit of many in body but one in mind. Today, let's take on another new challenge! Let's live out our lives victoriously by fulfilling the vow that we have made.
Our younger Men Division members are making fresh and enthusiastic progress in every area. I hope that each one of us can not only win in society but can also shine brilliantly in our local communities! Let's passionately engage ourselves, always burning with a courageous spirit!
In Okinawa, where the starting point for our peace movement stands, our fellow members are striving to do their very best, with the full commitment to realising their mentor's dream. For the sake of establishing a peaceful land for eternity, let's muster up all our courage and meet and talk with as many people as we can! Let's live out our lives by fulfilling our missions as Bodhisattvas of the Earth.
Life is all about taking action. And Buddhism is about progressing and advancing. The more we make an effort to meet and talk with others, the more we can expand and develop our circle of friends and at the same time elevate our life conditions to a higher level! Let's enthusiastically be in the forefront of our movement, engaging in dialogue with as many people as we possibly can.
To put the finishing touches to achieving kosen-rufu is the very unique role of our newly reborn Tohoku area. Your victories and happiness (through all the struggles you are having to face) is what is inspiring and giving great joy to everyone else around the world! Let's advance together along that grand path of hope!
What is most important when we try to develop good relations with others is to act with sincerity, to use our wisdom and to be courageous. Let's always try to develop and improve our characters so much so that everyone is impressed by what we do and quite naturally understands and supports what we are trying to achieve.
Great Tokyo, the bastion of kosen-rufu, shining with the history of the shared commitment of mentor and disciple! Advance with your hearts united as one, aiming for the pinnacle of complete victory! Let’s lead lives of glory and triumph together!
