— TO MY FRIENDS —
It is because of the precious treasure castles
that members so kindly offer for us to use for meetings
that kosen-rufu can advance with great progress.
Thank you so much for your constant kindness.
May you all be filled with virtue and great good fortune!

good fortune

“Now, however, we have entered the Latter Day of the Law, and the daimoku that I, Nichiren, chant is different from that of earlier ages. This Nam-myoho-renge-kyo encompasses both practice for oneself and the teaching of others.”

(On the Receiving of the Three Great Secret Laws – The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol.2, page 986) Selection Source: SGI President Ikeda’s guidance, Seikyo Shimbun, July 25th, 2014

​ “Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) once remarked: ‘I also regret not having talked more with women. I could have learned from them many things that men would not dare to tell me. Women, indeed, possess a particular independence.’

​“Napoleon may have failed to learn from or make use of the wisdom and power of women. But for our peaceful revolution of kosen-rufu, aimed at creating an age of the people, the wisdom and power of women is absolutely essential.”
