[To My Friends] TUE 31 JUL 2018–“Become the master of your mind rather than let your mind master you.”

Nichiren Daishonin urges,
“Become the master of your mind
rather than let your mind master you.”(*)
We can orient ourselves toward happiness
by being in control of our capricious,
ever-changing mind.
This is the true joy of our faith and practice!

(*)”Reply to the Lay Priest Soya,” WND 1, p. 486
