"Buddhism teaches that 'It is the heart that is important' (WND-1, 1000). As long as our hearts are true and pure, taking the Buddha's great vow for the happiness of all people as our own, all our efforts for kosen-rufu will turn into benefits. Everything is determined by our heart, our spirit of faith.

"The Daishonin always deeply treasured the sincerity of his disciples. He expressed his profound gratitude to them, often saying that he was moved to tears.

"Responding to sincerity with sincerity—that is how true bonds are formed between people. This is the Daishonin's spirit and also the Soka spirit of treasuring each individual. Leaders must never forget for an instant the Daishonin's golden words, 'It is the heart that is important.'"

SGI Newsletter No. 9254, Learning from the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin: The Teachings for Victory, [67] "The Two Kinds of Faith." The Buddhist Spirit of Placing Utmost Importance on the "Heart", from the October 2014 issue of the Daibyaku-renge, translation released 11th June, 2015
