IF you forget to read the Gosho, then your practice and guidance will tend towards idealism, beginning to reflect your own personal views. Let us sincerely check each other in this regards so that we do not waste our efforts. Please bear in mind that within the Gosho, you can find the way to solve any problem, as well as the fundamental principles of faith.

WISDOM is tremendously important for living each day in a wise and productive manner, instead of just letting the time slip lazily. And faith is the inexhaustible source from which such wisdom flows.

NO matter what happens, we should view everything that happens with a firm and hopeful attitude, confident that it will lead to a positive outcome. We should view things in such a way that energy wells up in our life, and in light of the principle of "changing poison into medicine". It is faith that enables us to do this.

CONSTRUCTION requires arduous effort; destruction takes but a moment. It is vital that we continue making unceasing efforts. The construction of kosen-rufu into the eternal future will fall to the youth who are prepared to keep on striving for this cause with all their heart and being.

IN Buddhism, the term "fundamental darkness" is used to describe the most fundamental ignorance and delusion inherent in human life. The aim of our great struggle for kosen-rufu, our great movement of human revolution, is to transform that innate darkness into light. Our goal is to vanquish the insidious destructive tendencies within human life that give rise to mutual distrust and hate, violence and fear.
