Brief Guidances

Strive With Resolute Faith!

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

[B]e prepared for the worst, and not to expect good times, but take the bad times for granted.

“On Persecutions Befalling the Sage,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 998

With his boundless and eternally abiding compassion, Nichiren Daishonin, the Buddha of the Latter Day of the Law, taught us a way of life of supreme conviction, of the strongest, noblest and most profound commitment. This is the path of faith in the Mystic Law.

If we remain resolute in our conviction that we embody the Mystic Law and stay committed to our vow to achieve kosen-rufu, we will not be afraid of anything. The power and wisdom to overcome all hardships will flow forth limitlessly from within us.

Teaching me the key to victory, my mentor, second Soka Gakkai President Josei Toda said, “Resolve to win and then do just that!”

From the Oct. 7, 2021, issue of the Soka Gakkai’s daily newspaper, Seikyo Shimbun.
