IN our organisation, there is no need to listen to the criticism of people who do not do gongyo and participate in activities for kosen-rufu. It is very foolish to be swayed at all by their words, which are nothing more then abuse, and do not deserve the slightest heed.

“TO continue” means to continue faith in the True Law; in your own beliefs; in your own wisdom; in the pursuit of happiness; in the fundamental power that leads to the eternity of the three existences of past, present and future; in the realm of all wonderful treasures of the universe; in an indestructible, lofty spiritual state; and on the solid road to good fortune. “Continuing” applies to everything.

THE principle of cause and effect is strict and exacting: it holds true whether or not your efforts are appreciated. It is not outward appearance of things that matters. Nor is authority or position of any importance. It is your heart or spirit. It is the actions that you take. This is the teaching of Nichiren Daishonin.

YOU will never find happiness if you do not change yourself from within. Happiness is not something that someone else can give to you. You have to achieve it for yourself. And the only way to do so is by developing your own character and capacity as a human being; by fully maximizing your potential. If you sacrifice your own growth and talent for love, you will absolutely not find happiness. True happiness is obtained through fully realizing your own potential.

SOME people spent their days pursuing idle amusement. Some live aimless lives, succumbing to indolence and apathy. But neither of these ways of living will ever lead to true fulfillment or happiness.
