TO exert oneself in the organisation is the best training. The sense of responsibility this entails cultivates one's humanity, and raises his capability to higher level.

IF you realise the significance of the present time, joy and firm determination will well forth in your life, and you will experience a profound sense of gratitude. Your faith will become solid and your mind settles on advancing together with the organisation on the direct path to kosen-rufu. Practising faith based on a perception of the significance of time is the key to developing a state of life crowned by the four virtues of eternity, happiness, true self and joy.

PEOPLE of first-class calibre possess both understanding capabilities and character. They have integrity. Therefore, you must confront and challenge every situation not with some flimsy ruse but with the full force of your character. You must live with honesty and integrity and produce solid results. You must set your sights on a great objective and fight to achieve it with your whole being and spirit.

HUMAN relationship problems are opportunities for you to grow and mature. Such problems can be character building if you do not let them defeat you. That is why it is important not to isolate yourself. No one can exist apart from others. Remaining aloof from others cultivates only selfishness, and that that accomplishes nothing.

BUDDHISM teaches the importance of the present and the future. The purpose of Buddhism and faith is for us to always be able to advance from today towards tomorrow filled with hope, taking positive steps for the future. We must never forget this crucial point.
