-- TO MY FRIENDS --
The Gosho says:
"Strengthen your faith day by day and month after month."*
Now is the time to make fresh new advancements!
Remember, everything will begin to change
when there is a positive transformation of our own inner resolve!
Gosho: "On Persecutions Befalling the Sage", "Strengthen your faith
day by day and month after month.", WND-1, page 997)

—— DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT ——
"The SGI's goal is kosen-rufu—realising human happiness and world peace through widely spreading the philosophy and ideals of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism. We will continue to strive earnestly for this goal, undaunted by any criticism, slander or malicious attempts to hinder our progress. That is because this is the will and decree of the Buddha of the Latter Day, Nichiren Daishonin. I proclaim that all who energetically exert themselves for the cause of kosen-rufu are genuine disciples of the Daishonin and, at the same time, genuine members of the SGI."
