8th March

A person who constantly chants Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with courage, no matter what circumstances he/she may face, will be able to manifest Buddhahood and live in accordance with the universal rhythm of eternity, happiness, true self and purity (jo raku ga jo), due to the power of the law and the power of faith. This is the reason for our Buddhist practice. There is no other way to realise a life-condition as indestructible as that which we can attain through the practice of Buddhism.

THERE is nothing greater than the strength of spirit. This is the power of the world of the Mystic Law. It is not a matter of vested interests or formalities. The spirit is not visible to the naked eye, but the spark of the spirit of people, once ignited, will never die. It spreads out throughout the world and forever into the future.

A person of seeking spirit - one who strives to thoroughly pursue some end or master some discipline - is a person of victory. On the other hand, a person of arrogance inevitably becomes deadlocked.

ONLY to the extent that you pray, tell others about Buddhism and spread the Mystic Law will you be protected by Boten and Taishaku, the protective forces of the universe. Only to that extent will great life force, wisdom, benefit and compassion well forth from your life.

PLEASE give everyone the strength and joy to win. Towards that end, we must sincerely treasure everyone in the organisation and make every effort to help them freely and fully manifest their strength and ability.
