"Believe in this mandala with all your heart. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is like the roar of a lion. What sickness can therefore be an obstacle?"

---- DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT ----
"No one in Japan had any hope for the future in the period immediately after the end of World War II. But Mr. Toda declared that in five or ten years' time, even the most painful hardship would seem like it had been a dream. He encouraged us, saying: 'You absolutely must not let life's hardships crush or defeat you. If you can do that, you'll definitely be able to look back with a vibrant spirit someday and say that you're truly glad you kept going at that time.'
"There might be occasions in life when we feel discouraged, thinking we've come to the end of the road. But the more trying the times we face, the more we need to strengthen the mentor-disciple spirit within us and forge ahead together with our fellow members—to realise peace and create a world where all life can shine."
