TO put in practical terms, through faith in the Mystic Law, one can change a life shrouded in darkness into a life of hope, value and harmony. In this way, one can enter the eternal path of life that is filled with the greatest virtue and blessings. This is what our Buddhist practice enables us to accomplish.

ANY difficult problem or suffering can be solved with faith. If your faith becomes weak, then suffering will turn into complaint and criticism, and you will destroy the source of benefit in your life. Faith gives rise to a life of the highest value and greatest satisfaction. Never forget the importance of the word "faith" as you build a life of total fulfilment which is overflowing with benefit.

DIALOGUE and action - it is important that these be employed simultaneously. We take action while holding discussions and discuss things while taking action. Herein lies the strength of the SGI's tradition.

BY pointing out to someone that his/her actions are inflicting suffering and hurt on others, we can urge that person to move in a more positive direction. Our honesty, in fact can open the way for forging deep bonds of genuine friendship with that person. In other words, it is quite possible for a "bad" friend to become a "good" friend.

ALL of you who are striving earnestly for kosen-rufu are infinitely noble and respectworthy. In a letter to one of his disciples, Nichiren Daishonin revealed the following important principle, "Since the Law is wonderful, the person is worthy of respect; since the person is worthy of respect, the land is sacred". (WND, p1097) Greatness is not a matter of wealth or social status. Truly noble are those who uphold the supreme Law; and any places where they dwell is automatically the Land of Eternally Tranquil Light that has existed for all time.
