— TO MY FRIENDS —
To all those who are challenging and preparing
for any decisive exams over this summer,

please try to do your very best!
All the efforts you have been so painstakingly making over time
will certainly blossom into results.
Let’s never be defeated by any possible lack in confidence!

“In the realm of faith, all the struggles and hardships undertaken for the sake of the Law and kosen-rufu become great benefit and good fortune. In fact, those who have suffered the most will become the happiest. This is the essence of Nichiren Buddhism.”

“Our karma is the noble mission that we chose to take on. Buddhist principles such as ‘earthly desires lead to enlightenment,’ ‘the sufferings of birth and death lead to nirvana,’ and ‘changing poison into medicine’ teach us that if we have a strong core of faith in our lives, we can dramatically turn around all misfortune that may assail us.”
