Brief Guidances

Imparting Hope Through Dialogue

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

[T]hose who hear even a single sentence or phrase of the Lotus Sutra will attain Buddhahood without fail.

“The Four Debts of Gratitude,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 42

By sharing even just a few words about the Mystic Law, we can guide others toward the supreme path of attaining Buddhahood. That is why the benefit of letting others hear about Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is so immense. Let’s treasure each person we encounter and, through sincere and courageous dialogue, help others form connections with Nichiren Buddhism that will fill them with hope.

Our dialogues to create a peaceful world are contributing great good to our societies today. They also represent the noble work of the Buddha by building a growing force of people committed to their own and others’ happiness now and into the eternal future.
