Offering One’s Home for Kosen-rufu Is a Source of Boundless Good Fortune

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

The great teacher [Dengyo] says: “. . . when, in the family, honor is paid diligently to the teachings [of Buddhism], the seven disasters will most certainly be banished.”

“On the Nation’s Slander of the Law,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 2, p. 1026

Families permeated by the sound of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo will be protected by the Buddhas and heavenly deities throughout the universe. Those who offer their homes for kosen-rufu activities will enjoy immeasurable and everlasting good fortune and benefit. They can overcome any obstacle.

Privately owned centers and facilities where noble Bodhisattvas of the Earth joyously gather are places where modern-day assemblies of the Lotus Sutra are held. They stand as brilliant citadels in their communities.

Translated from the November 29, 2019, issue of the Seikyo Shimbun, the Soka Gakkai daily newspaper
