IT is in an individual's behaviour that the essence of Buddhism lies. As you polish your character and personality through your faith, you are expanding a circle of trust among the people around you. Please remember that the development of kosen-rufu lies in the mundane actions undertaken in one's immediate reality.

A person of courage views things calmly, and for this reason acquires wisdom. A person of wisdom is able to discern future outcomes, and so acquires courage. By the same process, we must strive to become people of wisdom and courage.

BEING young means to possess the greatest wealth, even if one is penniless. Hope, potential and limitless energy are the assets of youth. You do not need to be in a hurry to own a nice home, or seek status and position, or get rich quick. If you dedicate yourself earnestly to your mission, everything you need for your life will come to you naturally.

WHAT is important for leading a joyful life? Tolstoy constantly stressed the importance of "correct faith". He said, "If you want to be quiet and strong, work and improve your faith." Genuine faith is a sword of belief and conviction that cuts through all sufferings; it is a bright light of hope that illuminates darkness and confusion. None led lives of greater strength and composure than you who base your lives on faith dedicated to truth and justice.
