— TO MY FRIENDS —
Our SGI discussion meetings are like flower gardens
of inspiration and encouragement.
The Daishonin says,
“Myō means to revive, that is, to return to life.”*
Cheerfully and in interesting ways,
let’s light up our friends’ hearts with hope and energy!

*”The Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra” – WND-I, page 149

—- DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT —-
“Final victory in life is attained through continuing in faith. It’s 
equally important to wholeheartedly grapple with your 
immediate problems and challenges to win in the present 
moment. That way, you can overcome each of your problems, 
one by one, and expand your life condition. All activities for 
kosen-rufu are for your own happiness and victory in life. 
The more efforts you make, the more benefit and 
good fortune you will accumulate.
            
“What matters is what you do right here and now. 
Time will not wait for you. Now is the time to take action.”
