-- TO MY FRIENDS --
The important point in dialogue
is to always listen carefully
to what the other person has to say
and, at the same time,
try to learn from them.
With a sincere and respectful heart,
let's cheerfully develop
and nurture friendships
with as many people as we can!

—— DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT ——
"'Winter always turns to spring' (WND-1, 536).
"These words of Nichiren Daishonin are a message of encouragement that causes the sun to rise in the hearts of all humanity. They are a source of courage enabling us to remain and daunted by the harshest winter of karmic suffering. They are a source of hope that unfailingly calls forth a springtime of happiness. Day after day, the members of our admirable Soka family are sharing this inspiring encouragement with people everywhere."
Editorial from the March 2018 edition of Daibyaku Renge, translation released May 2018
