There can be no question that through this act [chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo] the truly excellent medicine of the Wonderful Law is being applied in order to cure the grave illness of darkness [ignorance] that afflicts all living beings.

Eradicating misery from the face of the earth was the great vow of my mentor, Josei Toda. Cherishing his call for the abolition of nuclear weapons, we of the Soka Gakkai have built a growing solidarity of people who respect and treasure life. 

The fight against evil that threatens the very survival of the human race is never-ending. But we possess the truly excellent medicine of the Mystic Law. With focused, unwavering prayers for peace, let’s dispel the darkness of resignation and usher in a hope-filled future for humankind.
