Buddhism Day by Day

Happiness doesn’t exist on the far side of distant mountains. It is within you, yourself. Not you, however, sitting in idle passivity. It is to be found in the vibrant dynamism of your own life as you struggle to challenge and overcome one obstacle after another, as you clamber up a perilous ridge in pursuit of that which lies beyond.

Daily Encouragement
March 18, 2015

Let us do our utmost to sustain the wonderfully warm atmosphere of the SGI — an atmosphere where members feel free to discuss whatever is on their minds. Unless we do so, our organization will stop growing, stop developing. The SGI is a world of humanity — of the heart, of faith, of compassion. It is a world of unity and mutual inspiration. That is why it is strong. If we continue to value and promote these qualities, the SGI will continue to grow and develop forever. I want to declare here and now the atmosphere where we can discuss anything is fundamental to the SGI .

Regard your service to your lord as the practice of the Lotus Sutra. This is what is meant by “No worldly affairs of life or work are ever contrary to the true reality.”
I Hope you will deeply consider the meaning of this passage.

GM ———————————–” INITIATIVE ” ————————————

It is a leader’s responsibility to give deep, thorough consideration as to how the organization is to advance.

Achieving a goal requires painstaking preparations. Your plans should be original and enable the whole group to advance. Plans are not made for formality’s sake but in order to create value.

Whenever you see someone , give them a dream for the future. Especially with the young people, you should inspire hope and show them a glorious vision. Otherwise you cannot be called a true leader. (pgs. 47-48)
