THE foundation of health is strong faith, which enables us to draw forth strong life force, triumph over harmful, negative forces and transform our karma. Nichiren Daishonin famously declared, "Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is like the roar of a lion. What sickness can therefore be an obstacle?" (WND, p412)

IN all things, patience is the key to victory. Those who cannot endure cannot hope to win. Ultimate triumph belongs to those who can forebear.

THE way of mentor and disciple means an absolute commitment. A person who is all words and no action can never understand this fact. It is a solemn and exacting relationship. It is a matter of one's mind. The extent to which you can tap the infinite power of the Mystic Law is also determined by your mind, or attitude, in faith.

ALL things have their appointed time - cherry trees flower in the spring, and leaves turn crimson-red in the autumn. For better or worse, no one can escape the rhythm of time. What we can do is to perceive the nature of the present time.

IT is no easy feat for a seed which has been planted in one life to blossom into huge flower of happiness and bear the fruit of Buddhahood. To nurture our seed of Buddhahood, we must do daily gongyo and chant daimoku, receive correct guidance and encouragement, and study the gosho.
