Brief Guidances

Create a Bright Future for All With Your Wise Voices

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

Now when Nichiren and his followers chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, they enjoy the care and protection of Bodhisattva Universal Worthy [or Wisdom].

The Record of the Orally Transmitted Teachings, p. 190

People of broad and all-encompassing wisdom like Bodhisattva Universal Worthy are the driving force of worldwide kosen-rufu. In these troubled and confusing times, the noble and wise champions of Soka are building a growing network of people committed to putting Buddhism into action in society. They are spreading reassurance and hope.

Striving in the vanguard of these efforts are our young men’s and women’s student division members. The wisdom for value creation they are forging through their studies and self-development amid these challenging times shines as a beacon lighting the way to a new age.

With your wise, young voices, please continue to cheerfully widen your circle of friendship and create a bright future for your communities and the world!

Translated from the June 28, 2021 Seikyo Shimbun, the Soka Gakkai’s daily newspaper.
