— TO MY FRIENDS —
When one person opens up the path to growth and development
two, three and more people will follow.
This is the formula for victory.
Let’s each become the shining star in our communities,
the trailblazers of a new age!

“In the light of the above points, this shows my followers, 
cut short your sleep by night and curtail your leisure 
by day and ponder this! You must not spend your
lives in vain and regret it for ten thousand
years to come.”

(The Problem to Be Pondered Night and Day 
– The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol. 1, page 622)

—- DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT —-
“The only thing that renders us powerless is when we give up 
and decide for ourselves that we can’t go on. That is like closing 
the door on our inner potential or locking away our spirit 
by our own hand. Giving up is the cause of defeat.
            
“Faith in the Daishonin’s Buddhism gives us the power 
to break through the darkness of despair 
and make the sun of life rise in our hearts.”

SGI Newsletter No. 9026, The New Human Revolution––Vol. 26:
Chap. 4, Bold Advance 41, translation released 30th June, 2014
