WHEN WE CHANT NAM-MYOHO-RENGE-KYO, THE GOOD AND EVIL
capacities of our lives begin to function as the exalted from of fundamental existence. Lives that are full of the pain of hell, lives that are in the state of hunger, lives warped by the state of anger — such lives too begin to move in the direction of creating their own personal happiness and value. Lives being pulled toward misfortune and unhappiness are redirected and pulled in the opposite direction, toward good, when they make the Mystic Law their base.

THERE IS NO NEED FOR YOU TO BE IMPATIENT.
If you can achieve something very easily right from the start, you will find no sense of fulfillment or joy. It is in making tenacious, all-out efforts for construction that profound happiness lies.

Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Friday, March 6, 2015

A passage from the Lotus Sutra reads that it is “the most difficult to believe and the most difficult to understand.” Many hear about and accept this sutra, but when great obstacles arise, just as they were told would happen, few remember it and bear it firmly in mind. To accept is easy, to continue is difficult. But Buddhahood lies in continuing faith.

GM —————-* DEVELOPING CAPABLE PEOPLE* ————————

The important thing in life is confidence. Don’t be a weak leader who gets discouraged when one of your members moves away to take a new job. You should be proud of sending him to another location where he can become a fine leader someday.

What counts is raising leaders who can work for society and for kosen-rufu. Being narrow minded, self-deprecating or lacking in self-confidence simply reflects your weak Ichinen or conviction. Think positively and advance with confidence.

Believers in the Gohonzon, whatever their field of endeavor, each have some specific mission. You can accumulate fortune when you’re convinced of your mission.
