Brief Guidances

Boundless Gratitude for Our Many Treasures Group Members

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

Never in any lifetime will I forget how in those circumstances you [the lay nun Sennichi], with Abutsu-bo carrying a wooden container of food on his back, came in the night again and again to bring me aid.

“The Sutra of True Requital,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 933

I will never forget your devotion!”—Nichiren Daishonin is surely aware of all our efforts as we dedicate our lives to kosen-rufu.

The members of the Many Treasures Group, in particular, have accumulated indestructible good fortune and benefit. They have overcome countless difficulties in their own lives and in the struggle for kosen-rufu. They also triumphed over the treacherous scheming of ungrateful, self-serving priests at the time of the priesthood issue. Their noble stories of victory are proof of the immense power of the Mystic Law.

I call on you, my friends of younger generations, to carry on their passionate spirit of “a Soka youth forever!” and make fresh dynamic progress with youthful hearts.
