We Are Brightly Illuminating the Future of the World!

SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's Message- 1st Soka Gakkai Headquarters Leaders Meeting of the New Era of Worldwide Kosen-rufu
Brightly Illuminating the Future of the World
Declaring "there is no true happiness for human beings other than chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo," the Daishonin urges us: "Suffer what there is to suffer, enjoy what there is to enjoy. Regard both suffering and joy as facts of life, and continue chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, no matter what happens." (Happiness in this World. 'The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin', vol1, p 681)
No matter what bitter adversity we may face, we will never be defeated. Through the power of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, we can transform even the most painful sorrow--transmuting it into the compassion to encourage and help others who are suffering--and keep moving forward joyfully and positively.
You and I are linked in the depths of our lives by the daimoku we chant to realize the vow for kosen-rufu. As such, we are always together.
