To My Friends

January 9, 2023


“If the Law that one embraces is supreme,

  then the one who embraces it must 

  accordingly be foremost [among all others].”(*)

To the noble Bodhisattvas of the Earth 

  who have recently come of age,

  I ask you to lead an unsurpassed youth 

  and adorn your lives with triumph!

 Illuminate with world with the light

   of value creation.
