IT is absolutely forbidden for any SGI leaders to borrow money from or lend money to fellow members. Problems arising from such loans can result not only in trouble and grief for the parties involved, but in distrust and confusion spreading throughout the organisation. I state once again that what matters most is not money, fame or position, but one’s heart.

IT is beneficial to study the doctrines of Buddhism. The more we study them, the more it reinforces our understanding and deepens our appreciation of the excellence and profundity of Buddhism, which in turn serves to strengthen our faith and conviction. The fundamental purpose of our Buddhist study is to fortify the power of our faith and practice.

“TRY” is a little word, but big things – victory and glory – can be found within it. The sight of someone trying, no matter what obstacles one faces, no matter what the circumstances are, is the sight of victory itself.

PRAYERS offered based on the Mystic Law for the repose of a deceased parent constitute the highest form of filial piety. The Daishonin stated that one who carries out such filial actions will definitely be protected by the Buddhist gods.

IT is vital to deepen your “roots of faith”. If the roots of your faith are deep, you will never be toppled by the winds of impermanence. The “branches” of complete fulfilment will then grow, and the “fruit” of your change in destiny towards the attainment of Buddhahood will ripen. The accumulation of many experiences in faith, along with your daily practice and effort, will nourish the root of your faith and allow them to spread and deepen.
