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.  
-Daisaku Ikeda


  1. Action! Life rewards action...or as Daisaku Ikeda says, "If you are without hope now, create hope! If you are unhappy now, create your own happiness. You be the sun, imparting sunshine to all around you!"
