Buddhism Day by Day

WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER A WALL, YOU SHOULD TELL YOURSELF.
” Since there is a wall here, a wide, open expanse must lie on the other side.” Rather than becoming discouraged, know that encountering a wall is proof of the progress that you have made so far.

THIS IS WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO COMMUNICATE TO YOU,
my young friends who are the heirs of the Soka legacy: Live out your lives together with the SGI , an organization fulfilling the Buddha’s decree! Our activities in the organization of faith constitute our human revolution. To think selfishly, “I’ll just practice on my own and however I like”
cannot be called correct faith. Such people are Buddhist in name only; they are not true practitioners.

For Today & Tomorrow

Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Be diligent in developing your faith until the last moment of your life. Otherwise you will have regrets. For example, the journey from Kamakura to Kyoto takes twelve days. If you travel for eleven but stop with only one day remaining, how can you admire the moon over the capital?

(WND, 1027)
Letter to Niike
Written to Niike Saemon-no-jo in February 1280

GM ————————-” PRIME MOTIVATION ” ——————————-

WHETHER newspapers or magazines praise us or criticize us, remember that it’s just a passing phenomenon, much like one cold you catch in the course of your lifetime. Whatever may happen, leaders should not be swayed. Always remember your prime motivation.

EVERY guidance you receive is like your own reflection. Don’t play games or try to go the easy way. An honest approach to faith is the cause for winning in life. (p. 94)

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

*Guidance in1975, hold true today, in 2015*
