— TO MY FRIENDS --
Especially when we're busy,
let's be sure to use our faith and practice as the way of focusing
and by doing so,
let's courageously take on every challenge that confronts us.
By showing our sincerity and integrity and by being patient,
let's become a reliable and trustworthy pillar and light
in our workplace.

"Kyō'ō's misfortune will change into fortune. Muster your faith, and pray to this Gohonzon. Then what is there that cannot be achieved?"

-- WORDS OF THE WEEK --
The season to get out and about.
Let's go here and there to visit our friends!
The Daishonin encourages us to chant
Nam-myoho-renge-kyo and urge others to do the same.*
Let's spread a brilliant and refreshing breeze of hope
to the people around us.
