— WORDS OF THE WEEK —
Buddhism teaches the principle of three thousand realms
in a single moment of life.*
When we change our mindset through our faith and practice,
everything, in a single moment of life,
and chant daimoku most earnestly.
From there on progress and development starts!
*Three Thousand Realms in a Single Moment of Life – http://www.sgi.org/buddhism/buddhist-concepts/three-thousand-realms-in-a-single-moment-of-life.html
**”Our minds and energy should be concentrated on the tasks we must accomplish. Our prayer is then directed, and, through the principle of three thousand realms in a single moment of life, the entire universe will move toward our victory and success.” – The Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra, Vol. 4

— DAILY GOSHO —
“Although I and my disciples may encounter various difficulties, if we do not harbor doubts in our hearts, we will as a matter of course attain Buddhahood. Do not have doubts simply because heaven does not lend you protection.
Do not be discouraged because you do not enjoy an easy and secure
existence in this life.”
(The Opening of the Eyes- The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol.1, page 283)
