    "Our chanting of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is directed towards our human revolution. We don’t just sit and wait for people or circumstances to change. Through our own powerful inner resolve, we change ourselves and seek to exert a positive effect on our environment and all those around us."

        "We are trailblazers, heroic individuals paving new paths forward. With the heart of a lion king, let’s each elevate our state of life, help others form a connection with the Daishonin’s Buddhism, foster capable people for kosen-rufu, and triumphantly open a new age of Soka.

        "'Sharing a vow
        from the remote past—
        let us once again this year
        resolutely build
        a great citadel of victory.'"

          Let's take the initiative in greeting other people.
          Just a few caring words of concern
          can open the door to other's hearts.
          Brimming with a fresh vibrant and youthful spirit,
          let's energetically start the new year!

            "And yet, though one might point at the earth and miss it, though one might bind up the sky, though the tides might cease to ebb and flow and the sun rise in the west, it could never come about that the prayers of the practitioner of the Lotus Sutra would go unanswered."

              "Suffer what there is to suffer, enjoy what there is to enjoy. Regard both suffering and joy as facts of life, and continue chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. no matter what happens. How could this be anything other than the boundless joy of the Law? Strengthen your power of faith more than ever."

                Wise and sincere words. We must always value our selves and be aware of the "seeking approval" tendencies that many of us exhibit in our lives.

                    "Speaking of the power of praise, the Daishonin writes: 'The more gold is heated in the flames, the brighter will be its colour; the more a sword is whetted, the sharper it will become' (WND-1, 673). Let us praise and encourage the innate goodness and talent of children, which are like gold or a fine sword. I hope you will search out each child’s strengths and the areas where they are challenging themselves, sincerely praising them whenever the opportunity presents itself."

                      "Wishing our partners would practise Buddhism is the natural expression of our concern for happiness in the family. But arguing about religion and allowing it to become a source of conflict is counterproductive. The important thing is to remember our original intent — our partner’s happiness. We should reach out to our partner with words and actions filled with love and kindness. That’s the Buddhist way."

                            "The great omens of the “Supernatural Powers” chapter foretold that the essence of the Lotus Sutra would spread widely after the Buddha’s demise, when the two thousand years of the Former and Middle Days of the Law had passed and the Latter Day of the Law had begun."

                              "Those who remain true to their beliefs and refuse to compromise with the powers that be are sure to be caught up in storms of persecution. A true reformer is able to withstand the onslaught of such persecution."

                                The inviolable rules of dialogue
                                are to "listen" carefully,
                                "respect" what the other person has to say
                                and always have the attitude to want to "learn" from them.
                                Let's become people of sincerity and earnestness!
