To all SGI-USA members,

Please accept my heartfelt appreciation for your many efforts and tremendous support for the May Commemorative Contribution activity that just concluded. The funds you have so generously offered will be used to fuel our efforts to expand our organization and support our increasing number of youthful successors, while disseminating the great and humanistic philosophy of Soka that’s so desperately needed at this pivotal time for our country and the world.

There is no doubt that future generations will praise all you have done to make SGI President Ikeda’s vision a reality.

And as President Ikeda has written:

The benefit of making offerings to the Lotus Sutra is boundless. Through that benefit, we can triumph over any obstacle and devilish function. And nothing is stronger than a person whose life is instilled with this confidence. (The Hope-filled Teachings of Nichiren Daishonin, p. 4)

Thank you once again for your generous support. I am profoundly grateful for everything that you do.

Adin Strauss
SGI-USA General Director
