AS votaries or practioners of the Lotus Sutra (the Mystic Law), the more we struggle undefeated amid daunting obstacles and hardship, the more our life-force grows, the more our good fortune multiplies and the more our energy increases. We can use everything as fuel to power our human revolution and transform poison into medicine, becoming stronger and more compassionate people and developing an expansive state of life.

PROPAGATION begins with the inner struggle to defeat one's own cowardice or inner weakness. Introducing others to Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism is a lofty act of compassion. It is to share with others, based on a sincere prayer for their happiness, the supreme teaching and the supreme way of life that we ourselves embrace. Consequently, when we properly carry out propagation, genuine friendship and trust are born.

"WE burn the firewood of earthly desires and behold the fire of enlightened wisdom before our eyes," wrote the Daishonin. Daimoku converts all life's various trials into an impetus for hope-filled advancement. Suffering then is an essential source of sustenance for happiness. People of true faith are those who make their own goals - people who chose their own "mountain" to conquer and then proceed to scale its peak.

A capable person is one who embraces the rigours of faith and kosen-rufu with lifelong devotion.

WE have opened wide the door of the True Law for the sake of the people. To this day, we have worked to help people understand our movement through sincerely praying, conducting dialogue, taking action, and exercising our wisdom. While fighting to dislodge the ‘rubbish’ covering people’s hearts, we have to endeavour to help them awaken to the path of supreme happiness. This is our proud history, and this is the course that we will continue to follow in the future.
