There is no such thing as just ourselves being happy, nor is it about misfortune happening to others. Buddhism is the foundation, the cornerstone for building peace. Let's strive together to build a symbiosis society where everyone experiences happiness and we live in harmony with each other!
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application
Let’s always take the utmost precautions against any earthquake occurrence, (or any other natural disasters) and make every effort to prevent against any possible hazards! Through wisely collecting accurate information, let’s voice words of reassurance and help other people around us, especially the elderly, to feel safe!
The voices of students who carry out their missions as Bodhisattvas of the Earth are certain to be the driving force that rocks the era. All of our young men and women students, courageously and confidently devote yourselves to achieving kosen-rufu! Let’s expand our network of solidarity for peace!
Buddhism is a philosophy of value creation. Through practising this Buddhism, we're able to change karma into mission and develop an unwavering self that cannot be destroyed by anything. Let’s walk along this supreme way to attain absolute happiness!
Let’s try our best to prevent any kind of accident caused by falling over! Let’s very carefully watch our step when we walk on wet slippery roads, both around our homes and in or outside our community centres, etc.. Let’s remind each other about this whenever we can!
A person who is constantly striving to learn and absorb new things is able to achieve unlimited progress and growth. Let’s all kindle the spirit to seek and learn, elevating ourselves to reveal our highest potential! Together, let’s set the momentum of our lives towards higher and greater progress!
Let’s treasure our neighbourhood! A hearty cheery greeting is a great step towards friendship. Working towards kosen-rufu and peace starts right where we stand!
The Daishonin encourages us: “Exert yourself in the two ways of practice and study." Those of you challenging yourselves to take the introductory exam of Buddhist study, you are all noble professors of eternal happiness! Until the very last moment, let’s always show our heartfelt support!
Learning from past failures is the surest step towards success. Therefore, with an undefeatable spirit, let’s challenge ourselves over and over again, and never give up! Courageously let’s advance along the path that forges us!
