Words of Encouragement
Our actions to expand the solidarity of peace where we are right now, through striving to transform our lives and inspiring people around us, may seem unglamorous.
However, here lies the true struggle for peace, the surest path to change the world. As we tirelessly chant resounding daimoku ever more vibrantly, let’s reach out to others in courageous dialogue and bring the sun of hope to rise in the hearts of all to whom we are connected!
