Brief Guidances

Leading Lives Filled With Boundless Benefit

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

Though he himself is like the wisteria vine, because he clings to the pine that is the Lotus Sutra, he is able to ascend the mountain of perfect enlightenment. Because he has the wings of the single vehicle [the Mystic Law] to rely upon, he can soar into the sky of Tranquil Light.

“On Offerings for Deceased Ancestors,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 821

No one can escape the sufferings of birth, aging, sickness and death.

How wonderful it is to make this journey through life in rhythm with the Mystic Law and united in spirit with Nichiren Daishonin! We can transform all hardships and attain a state of eternity, happiness, true self and purity without fail. Our path is one of complete assurance and hope.

With unwavering faith, we can guide our families, loved ones and friends so that they, too, can “ascend the mountain of perfect enlightenment” and “soar into the sky of Tranquil Light” (WND-1, 821). Together, let’s lead lives filled with boundless benefit!
