You, my dear friends who are struggling to look for employment
on the battlefield of severe financial conditions,
no matter what, never be defeated, never give in!
With sincerity and perseverance
we can all open up a victorious path towards our respective missions in life!

Our practice is the force for attaining absolute victory.
There is not a single wall or obstacle
that cannot be overcome through our faith!
Let's make a fresh departure
towards the highest pinnacle of life and of kosen rufu,
starting first of all with invincible daimoku!

We are in the season again of sudden and dramatic fluctuations in the weather. Let's keep a close tab on our health and remind our friends as well to take the necessary steps to avoid catching a cold or any other sickness. Together, let's advance, keeping "our good health" as our top priority!

So much to study! Wow, thank you so much for transcribing this most amazing dailogue! Sensei, Mr. Endo, Mr. Saito, and Mr. Suda contributed to such deep amazingly rich study for us! Here is a snippet of what I'm focusing on:

Quote:
Ikeda: Yes, time without beginning is another name for life that is without beginning or end. It pertains, not to the doctrine of time, but to the doctrine of life.

The truth in the depths of life, the very life of the universe that continues to function ceaselessly, is referred to by the term time without beginning. This can also be called the “Thus Come One originally endowed with the three enlightened properties.”

Regarding the term “time without beginning” which in Japanese is kuon ganjo, the Daishonin says, “Kuon means neither created or adorned but remaining in one’s original state” (OTT, 141). “Not created” means inherently endowed; it does not indicate a specific point in time. “Not adorned” means not possessing the thirty-two features and eighty characteristics; it refers to ordinary people just as they are. “Remaining in one’s original state” means eternally existing.

Kuon signifies Nam-myoho-renge-kyo; it signifies the Gohonzon. When we pray to the Gohonzon, that very instant is beginningless time. For us, each day is beginningless time. Each day we can cause the supreme, pure, eternal life of time without beginning to well forth from our entire being. Each day we start anew from time without beginning, the starting point of life.


I'm going through these last two pages because herein lies the definition of our practice, this is what got me going in the original thread 7 years ago. Let's all attain Buddhahood in this lifetime! I'm sooo diggity down with thissss!

Thank you T for taking the time out for this!
