— TO MY FRIENDS —
All of our Student Division members, 
(college and university students) 
future leaders, 
are the treasures of the world.
They are like “young lions” 
courageously challenging themselves
to share this Buddhism.
Let’s give them our very best support 
and constantly offer them 
warm words of encouragement!

—— DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT —-
“To a person of faith, a single moment is not just a single moment, a day is not just a day. Each moment, each day, has an eternity of value packed into it. The more time passes, the more each moment, each day, shines with golden light.

“…There is something wondrous about personal encounters. They are all-important…A moment’s encounter can decide the direction of one’s entire life. A single word can become a turning point in life.”
 
SGI Newsletter No. 9114, Advancing Worldwide Kosen-rufu through One-on-One Interactions, from the February 2014 issue of the Daibyakurenge, translation released 30th Oct., 2014.
