Buddhism Day by Day

SOME PEOPLE are overly critical of themselves and become listless and unassertive as a result. Rather than engaging in pointless self-flagellation, young people would do best just being what young people are: bold, audacious and gutsy — throwing themselves entirely into whatever the task at hand.

THE FUNDAMENTAL SPIRIT OF BUDDHISM is that all people are equal.
A person is not great simply because of his or her social standing, fame, academic background or position in the organization. In the world of faith, the truly great are those who spread the Mystic Law and strive for kosen-rufu, who actively work for the sake of Buddhism and the happiness of others. Supremely respect worthy are those who champion the cause of kosen-rufu.

Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin

Our contemporaries think of the five characters of Myoho-renge-kyo only as a name, but this is not correct. it is the essence, that is, the heart of the Lotus Sutra…..Those who seek the heart of the sutra apart from its title ae as foolish as the turtle who sought the monkey’s liver outside the monkey, or the monkey who left the forest and sought fruit on the seashore.

(WND, 861)
“This Is What I Heard”
Written to the lay priest Soya Jiro on November 28, 1277

GM ———————–* DIGNITY AND GENEROSITY *————————

Dignity and generosity are essential to a leader. Dignity is faith. Generosity is the sincere feeling with which leaders think of individual members.

*GM. Refers to Guidance Memo*
The World Tribune Press 1975
*Chapter One: Leaders
Daisaku Ikeda

*Guidance in1975, hold true today, in 2015*
