A new phase of development in our lives begins from a fresh new determination! Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism is the Buddhism of "true cause!"* Everything starts from now, this moment onwards! Let's lead a life of creating value!
*Regarding the spirit of true cause, SGI President Ikeda said in a dialogue with young people, "The past is the past and the future is the future. You should keep moving forwards with a steady eye on the future, telling yourself, 'I'll start from today!' 'I'll start afresh from now, from this moment!' This is the essence of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism of True Cause, the spirit of starting from the present moment. This is the heart of our daimoku" (World Tribune,November 1st, 1996, p.11)
