Wisdom for Modern Life by Daisaku Ikeda
Tuesday, April 2, 2013:

Promptness is crucial in leading a victorious life. How we start each morning determines that day’s victory or defeat. It’s important that we resolve to win in the morning and begin our work with an energetic, refreshed spirit. We mustn’t forget that this is the secret to continual success. We live in a tumultuous age, and in such times, swift action is the key to success.

Why are human beings born? This question has posed a great challenge. President Toda lucidly set forward his conclusion. Namely, that this world is a place for people to, as the Lotus Sutra states, “enjoy themselves at ease.” We were born here in order to thoroughly savor the joys of life. Faith in the Daishonin’s Buddhism is what enables us to bring forth the great life force we need to lead such an existence.

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin

Though I may be a person of little ability, I have reverently given myself to the study of the Mahayana. A blue fly, if it clings to the tail of a thoroughbred horse, can travel ten thousand miles, and the green ivy that twines around the tall pine can grow to a thousand feet.
