-- TO MY FRIENDS --
All of our friends who are new to the organisation
have a unique and profound mission.
Based on our strong meaningful chanting
and the warmest of encouragement,
let's help each one of them
to become a truly creative and capable person
who can share in the noble task of kosen-rufu

"A woman who makes offerings to such a Gohonzon invites happiness in this life, and in the next, the Gohonzon will be with her and protect her always. Like a lantern in the dark, like a strong guide and porter on a treacherous mountain path, the Gohonzon will guard and protect you, Nichinyo, wherever you go."
(The Real Aspect of the Gohonzon - The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, WND-I, page 832)

"Today, many thinking people are reevaluating their lives and searching for the path to genuine happiness. The ultimate answer to this quest is found in Nichiren Buddhism. Learning about and studying the hope-filled philosophy of human revolution is the purpose of the study exams that have become an SGI tradition.
"…A seeking spirit in faith gives rise to boundless benefit. A spirit to encourage others to reveal their Buddha nature shines with the spirit of the Lotus Sutra.
"…A growing groundswell of Buddhist study is spreading throughout the world.
"…From now, from this moment on—this is the spirit of the Buddhism of true cause. Those who brim with this spirit are true victors in faith."
