THE daimoku chanted by those who exert themselves bravely and vigorously for the cause of kosen-rufu – even if only just one daimoku – has more benefit and power than 1,000 or 10,000 chanted without any goal or accompanying action. Having faith that is dedicated to kosen-rufu is what counts.

HOPE exists even in the midst of adversity. In fact, when you undergo the ordeals of adversity will your hope is truly fortified. Hope without ordeal is often nothing more than fleeting, idealistic dreams.

IT is natural that sometimes we fall sick. But we must see that sickness is sickness that originally exists in life, based on the principle of the Mystic Law. In other words, there is no reason to allow yourself to be controlled by illness, for it to fill your life with suffering and distress. From the standpoint of eternal life through the three existences, your fundamentally happy self is incontrovertibly established.

THE formula for victory lies in making steady and careful efforts to reach one goal after another, winning people over to your side and uniting their efforts through your wisdom and enthusiasm. This is exactly what you are doing in each day of your activity.

POSITIVE stimuli contribute to the positive development of your individuality. While shaped by such things as education, family environment and your own efforts, your individuality and development ultimately depend on your own consciousness. It is important to read good books and have good friends.
