— TO MY FRIENDS —
The momentum for the development and expansion
that will rock the era
is created right where we are holding and doing activities.
In particular it is the constant dedicated efforts of
our noble block/group leaders that are
the very driving force for our victories!

“We of the Soka Gakkai have rallied together under the banner of truth and justice. We have each appeared in this world with our mission as a Bodhisattva of the Earth.

“That mission is to realise kosen-rufu!

“Striving for the happiness of ourselves and others, we will eagerly share the great philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism with those around us. We will rise up vigorously from the depths of hardship and despair, enacting inspiring dramas of personal revitalization and demonstrating the incredible benefit of faith in the Mystic Law. We will cultivate invincible inner strength and richness of heart, polish our character, and lead lives overflowing with joy.

“A new age of worldwide kosen-rufu has arrived.

“The world is not far away. The places where we are right now—our homes, our workplaces, our communities—are the magnificent stages on which we play out our mission. They are centres of worldwide kosen-rufu.

“Let us stand up with the sun of time without beginning shining in our hearts!”
