— TO MY FRIENDS —
To all of our newfound friends in the Young Men’s Division,
remember that all the struggles and trials in your youth 
will become priceless lifetime treasures.
What’s important though, 
is for us to challenge ourselves with a strong indomitable spirit
and constantly play out victorious dramas in our lives!

“The Venerable Maudgalyāyana put his faith in the Lotus Sutra, 
which is the greatest good there is, and thus not only did he himself 
attain Buddhahood, but his father and mother did so as well. And, 
amazing as it may seem, all the fathers and mothers of the 
preceding seven generations and the seven generations 
that followed, indeed, of countless lifetimes before and after, 
were able to become Buddhas.”

– The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol.1, page 820)
