WE only live this precious life but once. Please make continual efforts, steadily overcoming life’s challenges one step at a time until you ultimately achieve a life in which all of your wishes are realized. May all of you, without exception, become happy. That is my sincerest wish.

BUDDHISM stresses the importance of the present and future. The present and the future are what matters. Always challenging oneself is practicing Buddhism. We practice for the sake of the present and future. It is important not to become trapped in the past; we have to put it behind us. The Buddhism of True Cause is always based on the present moment; it is always “from this moment on”.

THE important thing is to continue chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, no matter what, in times of happiness and in times of sorrow. This attitude of faith holds the key to living a life of supreme joy and happiness. Those who continue to chant sincere daimoku for whatever it is that is in their hearts, who continue to show proof of faith in their daily lives based on daimoku, praying deeply about all things – such people will definitely enjoy lives in which all their desires are fulfilled.

IT may be easy to masquerade as one who speaks about and studies the Law. However, such behaviour will not in the least enable one to make the spirit of the True Law his own. Unless one ceaselessly returns to the prime point with seeking spirit, genuine Buddhism will not pulse within his own life. Much less will he be able to move the hearts of others.

EVEN a cave that has been in total darkness for millions of years will become brightly illuminated the moment a light is brought inside. Only your practice of faith can ignite the flame of happiness within your heart.
