Working for Kosen-rufu Is Life’s Greatest Honor

At the time when the Law has spread far and wide [the time of kosen-rufu], the entire Japanese nation will chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, as surely as an arrow aimed at the earth cannot miss the target. But now you must build your reputation on the Lotus Sutra and give yourself up to it. 

“The True Aspect of All Phenomena,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 385

We can—no, we will—realize kosen-rufu without fail. This great conviction and vow is the spirit of Soka mentors and disciples that pervades May 3—Soka Gakkai Day. 

With faith in the Mystic Law, we can make the impossible possible, just as an arrow aimed at the earth can never miss. We will move everything in the direction of hope, happiness and victory.

Together with the Soka Gakkai and our fellow members, let’s chant earnestly, take bold action and confidently share Nichiren Buddhism with others.
