    "Be unafraid!
    The “Law of the lotus”[1]
    will enable you to overcome all adversity
    and enjoyably attain the inner riches
    of a lofty state of life.

    "Life goes by in a flash, and the speed of the days and months passing seems to accelerate as one ages. Nichiren Daishonin writes: 'Life is limited; we must not begrudge it. What we should ultimately aspire to is the Buddha land' (WND-1, 214). Let us live out our lives dedicated to the great vow of kosen-rufu, valuing and appreciating each day, with the spirit that we are advancing together with the Daishonin.

    "We all have various obstacles that we must overcome day after day and month after month. No matter how daunting the challenges we face, with our own daimoku and the support and encouragement of our fellow members, we strive valiantly to surmount them. Indeed, we are confident that we can do so without fail.

    " Employ the strategy of the Lotus Sutra before any other. 'All others who bear you enmity or malice will likewise be wiped out' [cf. LSOC23, 329]. These golden words [of the Lotus Sutra] will never prove false. The heart of strategy and swordsmanship derives from the Mystic Law. Have profound faith. A coward cannot have any of his prayers answered.- From “The Strategy of the Lotus Sutra” (WND-1, 1001).

    "Always courageously open the way forwards with the 'strategy of the Lotus Sutra.' This is the Gakkai spirit in direct accord with the Daishonin’s heart. For that reason, let’s begin every undertaking with strong prayer.

    "The Mystic Law has the beneficial power to vanquish all devilish functions. It can activate the heavenly deities and turn anyone in any of the Ten Worlds into a friend or ally.

    "Even this supreme strategy, however, will be to no avail if we are cowardly. Courage is of the essence. With courageous faith, let us open the way to victory in all spheres."

    "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."

    We experience true pleasure in life when we are able to courageously face and overcome all kinds of hardships. The Gosho says: "Strive ever harder in faith, and never give in to negligence."* Let's joyfully and fervently carry out our daily practice of Gongyo and Daimoku so that we can manifest our full potential of the Buddha from within and be constantly victorious!

    "Although I and my disciples may encounter various difficulties, if we do not harbour doubts in our hearts, we will as a matter of course attain Buddhahood."

    "Nichiren Daishonin states that if we follow a friend who upholds the Lotus Sutra, a person who is a rare treasure, we will not only be able to attain Buddhahood, but also to lead others to enlightenment, even parents who may have initially been opposed to our Buddhist practice (cf. WND-1, 638). As long as we stay united with our fellow members, good friends who embrace the Mystic Law, we will be able to walk the path to happiness and victory, and help our other friends and loved ones do the same."

    "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."
