BECAUSE people are wise, they are maligned. Because people are just and upright, they are defamed. You may also encounter slander and abuse because of your faith in Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism, but never let this shock or intimidate you.

OPPOSING good is called evil; opposing evil is called good. Therefore, outside of the heart there is neither good nor evil. Good and evil in themselves have no substance. In other words, they are in themselves not absolute, but reflect relative distinctions. It is important, therefore, to ceaselessly direct one’s heart, and take action, towards good.

TRULY admirable is the person who wants to train and educate his/her juniors so that they can surpass him/her. Such a person is a true asset. Those who willingly help their juniors develop and become great individuals, while smilingly supporting and watching their growth, are leaders among leaders.

DAY after day, a new sun rises on the lives of those who uphold the Mystic Law. A vigourous and rich life force wells up in them. They feel younger year by year, and their lives are filled with good fortune even in their last years. We can see, then, that Buddhism shows us the way to solve various problems which we confront as our society ages.

IRRESPECTIVE of your level of erudition, the brilliance of your academic career or height of your social status, you should learn about matters of faith from someone who has truly deep faith. Trying to understand faith based on your own views is extremely risky.
