A seeking spirit means taking action. Embracing the Gohonzon, doing gongyo and chanting daimoku to the Gohonzon are all actions which reflect one's seeking mind. Moreover, reading the gosho; attending meetings, whether large or small; and receiving guidance are, in a similar sense, expressions of one's seeking spirit.

FAITH is the greatest joy there is. The 'Buddhism of joy' enables us to live each day with excitement, as though we were on an enjoyable journey, arm in arm with dear friends. There is no need whatsoever for us to have to experience undue pressures, or to get caught up in extreme formalism, on account of faith.

WE must continually grow - from the self of yesterday to the self of today, and from the self of today to the self of tomorrow. It is precisely in so doing that we are able to inspire courage and hope in others and guide them towards victory.

THE Gohonzon encompasses the entire universe. Therefore, we who believe on and chant daimoku to the Gohonzon can live out our lives with the greatest serenity and composure. Please be confident that through faith in the Mystic Law we can definitely lead a wonderful and unsurpassed existence.

WE can never rectify the folly of endless feuding, hatred and killing taking place on this small planet of ours and make it a place where all can live in peace and happiness until we firmly embrace a correct view of the universe, of life and philosophy based on a cosmic perspective.
