* Apologies for the delay, we are in typhoon mode here in Japan 
and things are getting a bit delayed and will continue to do so for 
the next day or so. Do not worry we are fine but obviously things 
do happen and we may not have the facilities to send out TMF 
for a short while. All the best and hope you have a great day. 
A translation of President Ikeda’s “To My Friends” 
published in the Seikyo Shimbun and more.

— TO MY FRIENDS —
The place where we are right now is the
very stage on which to achieve our human revolution.
At home, at work and in our local community,
let’s show actual proof of the Buddhist principle,
“faith equals daily life,”*
by steadily taking steps in our self development.

*Buddhism Equals Daily Life –

—— DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT ——

“Let us strive every day as we chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo resonantly before the Gohonzon to begin anew, powerfully bringing forth fresh life force from within us. The purpose of our Buddhist practice is to lead lives of complete fulfillment, with the spirit that every day is New Year’s Day, and illuminated by the morning sun of time without beginning.
