-- TO MY FRIENDS --
Let's all warmly protect and support
those members who are rearing young children!
It's always important to do our best
to understand and empathize with their struggles.
Let's create a truly warm atmosphere
where such members can feel at ease
when seeking out advice about
whatever problems and concerns
they may have!

--- DAILY GOSHO ---
"When you come of age and take faith in Buddhism, you must first of all think of paying the debt you owe to your father and mother. Mount Sumeru is paltry in comparison to the towering debt you owe your father; the great ocean is shallow compared to the profoundness of the debt you owe your mother. You must bear in mind these debts you owe to your father and mother."
("The Four Virtues and the Four Debts of Gratitude",
- WND-Vol 2, page 637)
