[To My Friends] TUE 8 MAY 2018–The SGI’s dialogue movement is the force for building an ideal society

The ultimate “behavior as a human being”(*) is making efforts to respect people. The SGI’s dialogue movement based on our belief in the Buddha nature that exists in ourselves and others is the force for building an ideal society. (*)”The Three Kinds of Treasure,” WND I, p. 852 “The purpose of the appearance in this world of Shakyamuni Buddha, the lord of teachings, lies in his behavior as a human being.”

[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. (*)”Four Virtues and Four Debts of Gratitude,” WND Vol. 2, p. 636.
