IN life and in art, such things as short-term popularity and fame are all petty considerations. While of course it is important to make one's best effort, there is no reason to be disappointed if there are no immediate results. The important thing is to become a stronger person and to grow as a human being.

IF you are neglecting the things you should be doing, forgetting your purpose in life because of the relationship you are in, then you are on the wrong path. A healthy relationship is one in which two people encourage each other to reach their respective goals while sharing each other's hopes and dreams. A relationship should be a source of inspiration, invigoration and hope.

LIFE is eternal, spanning the three existences of past, present and future. The future of kosen-rufu stretches out endlessly before us. Thus, to depart from the depth of happiness on account of being caught up in immediate concerns would be a cause for untold regret.

NICHIREN DAISHONIN explained that as long as we have sincere faith, our ordinary lives as common mortals in society are the very sphere of our Buddhist practice. I believe the greatness of this Buddhism lies in the fact that it leads the way to enlightenment that all people can follow.

EARNEST prayer becomes the rhythm of one's life, and through the Gohonzon, enables one to fuse with the rhythm of the universe. As a result, one can experience benefit and manifest one's capability in daily life, in accordance with the true principle of prayer.
