The Everlasting Brilliance of Our Many Treasures Group Members
Abutsu-bo is … the treasure tower itself, and the treasure tower is Abutsu-bo himself. No other knowledge is purposeful.
“On the Treasure Tower,”
The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 299
Our pioneer members of the Many Treasures Group are our modern-day equivalents of Abutsu-bo and his wife, Sennichi. They are precious treasure towers adorned with boundless good fortune and benefit accumulated through dedicating their lives to kosen-rufu while weathering all kinds of challenges and obstacles.
Together with these noble members, let’s illuminate those around us with the hope-filled message that “winter always turns to spring” (“Winter Always Turns to Spring,” WND-1, 536). And with the invincible Soka Gakkai spirit, let’s show people the world over the way to everlasting happiness, the path to attaining Buddhahood in this lifetime!
