"Working for the happiness of others and sincerely valuing the person right in front of us requires having absolute faith in the positive potential inherent within each individual. That faith and conviction are the driving force for building a network of hope and opening the way to a brighter future."

Daisaku Ikeda

"I am praying that, no matter how troubled the times may become, the Lotus Sutra and the ten demon daughters will protect all of you, praying as earnestly as though to produce fire from damp wood, or to obtain water from parched ground."

(On Rebuking Slander of the Law and Eradicating Sins - The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol. 1, page 444)

"The Daishonin states that we should respect one another as we would a Buddha."*

"Let's always respect and praise our fellow members who are challenging themselves in various different ways to share this Buddhism and its philosophy with others. Let's gather in joyful perfect solidarity and achieve great victories!"

Daisaku Ikeda

*"Even an ignorant person can obtain blessings by serving someone who expounds the Lotus Sutra. No matter if he is a demon or an animal, if someone proclaims even a single verse or phrase of the Lotus Sutra, you must respect him as you would the Buddha. This is what the sutra means when it says, 'You should rise and greet him from afar, showing him the same respect you would a Buddha.' You should respect one another as Shakyamuni and Many Treasures did at the ceremony in the 'Treasure Tower' chapter." - The Fourteen Slanders, WND-I, page 757

"Therefore, we know that the prayers offered by a practitioner of the Lotus Sutra will be answered just as an echo answers a sound, as a shadow follows a form, as the reflection of the moon appears in clear water, (as a mirror collects dewdrops, as a magnet attracts iron, as amber attracts particles of dust, or as a clear mirror reflects the colour of an object.)"

Gosho: "On Prayer", Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol 1, page 340

"And could not this illness of your husband's be the Buddha's design, because the Vimalakirti and Nirvana sutras both teach that sick people will surely attain Buddhahood? Illness gives rise to the resolve to attain the way."

(The Good Medicine for All Ills - The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, page 937)

"We strive in our Buddhist practice in order to overcome all of life’s trials and tribulations and become happy. To do that, we need invincible strength. So, what is strength?

“Strong people are often said to have a firm sense of purpose in life, or deeply held convictions, or true friends. We, in the Soka Gakkai, have all three. We have the lofty purpose of realising kosen-rufu and attaining Buddhahood in this lifetime. And we have the unshakable conviction that in upholding Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism we can achieve indestructible happiness for ourselves and others. Finally, we have trusted comrades in faith and a Soka family united in a network of friendship, where we mutually encourage and support one another.

"In other words, we possess the best possible conditions to become strong, and it is faith in the Mystic Law that allows us to demonstrate this and become happy.”

Daisaku Ikeda
