Buddhist Food for Thought 082414—Happy Men’s Division Day!

Happy Men’s Division Day to all of my Soka Brothers!

To My Friends

August 24th, 2014

Our faith and practice enable us to
develop a remarkable life condition.
If we apply ourselves wholeheartedly
to the two ways of practice and study,
we can transform ourselves into
individuals who have the capacity
to appreciate everything and
be defeated by nothing.
Let’s advance along the great path
of our human revolution!

Wisdom for Modern Life by Daisaku Ikeda

It has been said that aging gracefully is more difficult than dying, but as long as we have a forward-looking, positive attitude, a spirit to take on challenges, we will gain depth in our lives.

 

Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Sunday, August 24, 2014:

If there is one who can cause others to awaken to and take faith in a teaching such as this, then that person is their father and mother, and also their good friend. This is a person of wisdom.
