Brief Guidances

The High School Division Is a Source of Hope for Eternal Victory

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

If the roots of a tree reach far down, then its branches will flourish; and if the source of a river is far away, its flow will be long-lasting.

The Record of the Orally Transmitted Teachings, p. 24

Those who have embraced the most profound philosophy of the Mystic Law at a young age are certain to grow like mighty trees and achieve happiness and victory. I hope you will work steadily and patiently now to put down solid roots of effort to produce leaves of wisdom, flowers of friendship and the fruit of peace in the future.

The growth of you, my dear friends of the high school division, is a source of hope promising a better future for our world in the 21st and 22nd centuries.

Overcoming all challenges with powerful life force, please continue studying and developing yourselves.

Translated from the June 5, 2021 Seikyo Shimbun, the Soka Gakkai’s daily newspaper.
