Brief Guidances

Creating Wonderful Memories of Our Life in This World

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

Everywhere other than the Capital of Tranquil Light is a realm of suffering. Once you leave the haven of inherent enlightenment, what is there to bring you joy?

“Questions and Answers about Embracing the Lotus Sutra,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 64

Kosen-rufu is the noble task of creating the “Capital of Tranquil Light,” an enlightened realm, in our suffering-filled societies. Carrying out the frontline efforts in this undertaking are our noble men’s and women’s division group leaders.

Nichiren Daishonin is surely aware of all your tireless, admirable efforts. The lives of those who bring forth their innate Buddhahood, the “haven of inherent enlightenment,” will never be deadlocked.

Together with your fellow members, please continue creating wonderful “memories of your present life in this human world” (see WND-1, 64).

Translated from the June 22, 2021 Seikyo Shimbun, the Soka Gakkai’s daily newspaper.
