UNLESS we strive against evil and injustice, we cannot say we are working for good. The same applies to our struggle for kosen-rufu. Unless we defeat evil, we will not be able to realise kosen-rufu.

HAVING good friends is like being equipped with a powerful auxiliary engine. When we encounter a steep hill or an obstacle, we can encourage one another and find the strength to keep pressing forward vigourously.

THOSE who spread wide the wings of courage are fearless. Limitless possibilities open up before them. They are able to soar towards victory and happiness. Those who lack courage, on the other hand, come to a standstill and lead lives full of complaints. Similarly, those who are haughty and abusive towards their juniors and subordinates cannot be said to possess true courage.

FINANCIAL security alone does not guarantee happiness - certainly not eternal happiness. There are too many people who fritter away their time - a precious commodity available to us in limited supply. When we consider this fact, the efforts you are undertaking now for kosen-rufu shine as brilliantly as diamonds; they are the means for you to accumulate unlimited good fortune.

EVEN if you have suffered from unfortunate circumstances in the course of your life and practice of faith, the actual proof you see as a result of your strong faith will leave you clearly convinced of the power of Buddhism, giving rise to hope and courage in life. This, in turn, will enable you to advance on a course towards lasting, genuine happiness based on the law of Myoho.
