To everyone who has supported Seikyo Shimbun

“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. I, page 283)
