— TO MY FRIENDS —
Every single effort we make for the sake of our friends
shines eternally as treasures of the heart.
Let’s lead a life of honour and pride,
earning people’s respect through our actions
so that someone can say this about us:
“It’s all thanks to having that person in my life!”

“In life, we may be faced with unexpected illnesses, inescapable problems, and ceaseless challenges. “Whatever storms of karma may assail you, the key is to earnestly chant daimoku with the determination, ‘This is the moment to turn poison into medicine!’ Everything is encompassed in daimoku. “Walk with the sun! The sun is always shining and watching over you,… “In life, winning in the end is the greatest happiness. Advance in high spirits!”
