[To My Friends] SAT 5 MAY 2018–Let’s engage with our mothers and fathers with smiles.

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 smiles.
That is an admirable way to show our
parents that we care.
Let’s treat our parents with kindness
and respect with a heart of gratitude.
