The source of indomitable action lies within our lives. Nothing can take that away from us. If our efforts derive from our own inner motivation, there is no way we can be defeated. If, on the other hand, our efforts are just a pretense, an imitation of others’ actions, or involuntary, then our true colors will soon be revealed. A fox that borrows a tiger’s authority is cowardly. A lion that stands alone is indomitable.
For us, as SGI members, this means dedicating our lives to the great desire for kosen-rufu. When we awaken to this momentous aspiration, we can change any karmic suffering into the joy of fulfilling our mission.
