Brief Guidances

Supporting Our Fellow Members Is a Source of Immeasurable Benefit

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

The blessings you will enjoy for protecting those who accept and uphold Nam-myoho-renge-kyo will be impossible to fathom! They will be splendid blessings! Truly wonderful!

“How Those Initially Aspiring to the Way Can Attain Buddhahood through the Lotus Sutra,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 887

The benefit of supporting those who accept and uphold the Mystic Law is immeasurable.

We chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with a genuine concern for the happiness of our fellow members and rush to the side of those who are suffering. We warmly support others, empathize with their pain and take a courageous step forward together. Nichiren Daishonin is surely aware of all our compassionate and dedicated efforts.

Let’s strive even harder to encourage those around us based on the humanistic spirit of Soka. Let’s attain a life state brimming with good fortune and security, and help others do the same.
