Brief Guidances

Writing a Story That Will Shine for All Time

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

Could there ever be a more wonderful story than your own [that will be recounted by future generations]?

“Letter to the Brothers,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 499

Amid harsh trials, we can create great history. Undeterred by the winter cold or the summer heat, our courageous members have united with fresh resolve to blaze the way to realizing a peaceful and prosperous society based on the humanistic principles of Nichiren Buddhism. The Daishonin is surely praising them most highly.

Our solidly united network of dedicated members, sharing one another’s struggles and joys while contributing to their communities, is a pillar of peace and humanism.

With the youth in the lead, let’s make this year the start of a decade of transforming the destiny of humankind and each write a victorious story that will shine for all time!

Translated from the January 15, 2021 Seikyo Shimbun, the Soka Gakkai’s daily newspaper.
