[To My Friends] FRI 28 JUL 2017–Let’s treat our parents with care, kindness and respect

Nichiren Daishonin admonishes,
“In the course of a day one at least smiles
twice or thrice in [the parents’] direction.”(*)
Let’s engage with our mothers and fathers
with a smile and remember to convey
our appreciation with words.
Let’s treat our parents with care, kindness
and respect with the spirit of
repaying our debt of gratitude.
