Kosen-rufu is the movement to create the type of society where people live by inspiring each other. Let’s make a point of visiting our fellow members listening very carefully to what they have to say, and then let’s give the type of encouragement that bonds our hearts with theirs. Such steady, consistent efforts are a strong driving force for victory.
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance with universal value and application
When developing good relations with others, it is important that our voices be full of vitality and that we always try to quickly respond. By showing the utmost sincerity and swiftly taking the appropriate actions, let’s open up a path to victory and success!
Every time when we hold a meeting, let's make sure to be as considerate as possible by being careful not to park our cars or bicycles in an irresponsible way or thoughtlessly talking in a loud voice outside, etc.. Always remembering to express our sincere appreciation to those members who are so kind to offer their homes for our meetings, let’s carefully protect our ‘treasure castles’ of the community!
It often takes desperate struggles and arduous efforts to develop something but only a moment to destroy it all. Be very careful not to become careless or overconfident at any time! It’s through our selfless devotion to achieving kosen-rufu that our Buddha wisdom and courage wells up.
If we are half-hearted in our efforts then we cannot expect to achieve anything significant. The road ahead will open up, as long as we are diligent and unremitting in our efforts. Let’s decide: “I am definitely going to win,” and advance forwards, ever forwards!
All of our friends who are new to the organisation have a unique and profound mission. Based on our strong meaningful chanting and the warmest of encouragement, let’s help each one of them to become a truly creative and capable person who can share in the noble task of kosen-rufu!
Today is Japan Press Holiday. We will be back tomorrow.
It is actually when our schedule is so hectic that we can find great opportunities to elevate our life condition. Let’s always remember to chant daimoku so that we can boldly endeavour to achieve our human revolution!
The place where we are right now is the very stage on which to achieve our human revolution. At home, at work and in our local community, let's show actual proof of the Buddhist principle, “faith equals daily life," by steadily taking steps in our self development.
A super typhoon is approaching (to Japan). Let’s beware and cautious of any rainstorms, landslides, flooding from rivers, etc.. To all of those who deliver Seikyo Shimbun and all our other SGI publications, please make sure that your safety is your top priority and stay absolutely accident free!
