— TO MY FRIENDS —
As “leaders,”
by sharing our own personal experiences
let’s share the joy and confidence
we ourselves have in practising Nichiren Buddhism!
When everyone is inspired and rises up to take action using this faith,
the momentum of our advancement is definitely going to accelerate.

“No great achievement can be accomplished in a single generation. It requires the presence of disciples who embrace the original mentor’s vision as their own and wholeheartedly strive to achieve it over successive generations. That is how great things are accomplished.

“Disciples can join in a great undertaking precisely because the mentor has opened the way. At the same time, the mentor’s vow is realised precisely because the disciples carry on the mentor’s work and vision. An eternal flow of mentor and disciple will create a new great tide of Soka.”
