Buddhism teaches the principle of “cherry, plum, peach and damson blossoms,” which elucidates the unique diversity and beauty of all living entities. Live true to yourself and advance! There is no need to compare yourself with others. Sincere faith enables your greatest strength and individuality to shine forth.
Translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application.
