"From this single element of mind spring all the various lands and environmental conditions."

(The Unanimous Declaration by the Buddhas of the Three Existences regarding the Classification of the Teachings and Which Are to Be Abandoned and Which Upheld
- The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol.2, page 843)

Buddhist study, Seikyo Shimbun, January 1st, 2015

Sunday, January 4th, 2015
"A pioneering women's division member from Aomori Prefecture in Japan, where it snows heavily in the winter, has delivered the Seikyo Shimbun each morning for over 40 years. In the past, her fellow villagers shunned her because she was a Soka Gakkai member. But she refused to be defeated, resolving to win over every obstacle by bringing forth even greater strength and wisdom. Today, declaring that the community in which she lives is the best in the whole country, she says: 'Daimoku has the power to make anything possible. When you chant for someone's happiness, the right words emerge from your own Buddha nature to touch their Buddha nature. My greatest joy in life is introducing others to this practice and expanding our circle of friendship.'

"We have entered an age when the daimoku of our infinitely noble and precious SGI members, brimming with courage and hope, enfolds society, locally and globally."

SGI Newsletter No. 9142, The Fearless Lion's Roar of Daimoku, from the January edition of the Daibyaku Renge editorial, translation released 16th Dec., 2014
