Transforming the darkness that besets humankind literally means transforming the destiny of humankind. The twenty-first century may be said to represent the crossroads at which all humankind must cast off the transient and reveal the true. If the world’s destiny cannot be changed, then this century will turn out to be even darker than the last. In that scenario, humankind will have no future. The present age of hardships and ordeals represents a golden opportunity for all people to awaken a new global awareness.
Nichiren Buddhism teaches the necessity and the possibility of discarding the transient and revealing the true for all humankind. Therefore, I believe the Daishonin’s teaching is a necessary and indispensable religion for humankind in the twenty-first century. I also firmly believe that it is the mission of the youth of the twenty-first century to demonstrate this.
