— WORDS OF THE WEEK —
When we chant for the happiness of our friends,
our life condition is elevated to the Buddha’s.
Let’s unceasingly share this ultimate unsurpassed Law of Life ,
without even sparing our voices!*
Let’s open up the palace of our own lives

within oneself and enters the palace of oneself. Chanting
