HONEST and continuing dialogue with a single person is important. In these efforts, requiring perseverance and courage, there lies the brilliant possibility of kosen-rufu's unlimited expansion.

FROM the standpoint of our practice, an attitude of wishing to live long so that one may work that much more for the sake of others could be considered a vivid expression of faith.

IT all comes down to you. Not others. You must build a solid foundation within your own life. And as you grapple to overcome various problems and sufferings along the ways, you must strive to accomplish all that you have set out to achieve. This suffering is the flesh and bones of a leader. It will become the treasure of your life.

NOTHING is wasted in faith. One never loses out. Please be confident that all your efforts to help others and to promote Buddhism are accumulating immense treasures of good fortune in your life. This is what is meant by inconspicuous benefit.

ADVANCE preparation is very important. Whether you are heading out for a discussion meeting or to introduce Buddhism to others, or whether you are going to work, it is the person who prepares in advance who succeeds. The most important and fundamental preparation is gongyo and daimoku. Chanting to the Gohonzon with a strong determination to succeed is the best preparation of all.
