"The wonderful means of truly putting an end to the physical and spiritual obstacles of all living beings is none other than Nam-myoho-renge-kyo."

"From a broader perspective, the basic purpose of Buddhism is to reach out to relieve the suffering of all those who are striving their hardest to live in this troubled and afflicted saha world, or world of endurance, in this most difficult age of the Latter Day of the Law.
"What is essential to rising above suffering? It is being aware of the preciousness of life and trusting and respecting people. This is because the fundamental cause of suffering lies in denying the preciousness of life and distrusting others.
"When we awaken to the fact that all life is absolutely precious, that nothing we experience in this world is ever wasted or in vain, and that we ourselves are also precious treasures, there emerges within us a powerful self-confidence, an unshakable sense of security, and limitless gratitude. The recognition that the lives of all others, too, are infinitely precious engenders a deep respect for people, a firm trust in them, and an all-encompassing compassion."
