A translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shinbun based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, and more.
-- TO MY FRIENDS --
The Daishonin encourages us,
"Become the master of your mind rather than let your mind master you."*
All of us are capable of disciplining our ever changing minds,
and leading our minds in the direction of happiness.
This is the true joy that we can experience through our faith and practice.
* "Letter to the Brothers", WND-I page 502
--- DAILY GOSHO ---
"Ninth is the world of bodhisattvas, those who remain among the ordinary mortals of the six paths of existence, thinking little of their own lives but much of the lives of others, aiming always to take evil upon themselves and dole out good to other beings."
("Explaining the Causation of the Ten Worlds", WND-ll page 201)

"Division begets division, which is why it is so important to establish a unifying philosophy that returns to the universal common denominator of our shared humanity."
