1st February

ONLY those who make consistent efforts in daimoku, study and discussion meetings in their community are true and honourable Gakkai members. That is the standard I would like to set.

IN general, not to forget someone is an expression of deep concern for that person. By treasuring each encounter with, and each day spent in the company of, members who are the precious children of the Buddha, you can daily accumulate treasures in your life.

A single person is parent to the great ocean of kosen-rufu. For this reason, we should treasure individual human beings. And we should also take pride in ourselves as pioneering individuals. The accumulation of single steps forward leads to victory in the long journey of kosen-rufu. Therefore, we should value the single step we take today. Today's step is the parent of glory.

NEVER be shakened, no matter what happens or what others may say. Never be flustered, never lose confidence. This is the way we should strive to live our lives. Being able to do so is a sign of genuine character.

PLEASE always advance in harmony and friendship with each other. Harmonious development is the starting point for happiness, construction and value creation. As we each strives to grow further with every passing year, let us accumulate good fortune and together achieves happy, healthy and truly wonderful lives.
