--TO MY FRIENDS--
In The Orally Transmitted Teachings,
  Nichiren Daishonin states,
  "Difficulties will arise, and these are to be
   looked on as “peaceful” practices."(*)
Hardships are golden opportunities for growth.
Let's courageously chant daimoku and
  cultivate a rich life condition!

(*)"Chapter Fourteen: Peaceful Practices: Five important points--Point One, concerning the 'Peaceful Practices' chapter," OTT, p.115
"The Record of the Orally Transmitted Teachings says: Concerning the 'peaceful' practices of the Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Law and the practices carried out by Nichiren and his followers now in the Latter Day of the Law, you should understand that, when one practices the Lotus Sutra under such circumstances, difficulties will arise, and these are to be looked on as “peaceful” practices."

Unofficial translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance, with universal value and application, put together by Seikyo staff. (write tmf_daily[at]icloud.com for daily mailings) 

--わが友に贈る--
「難来るを以て安楽と
意得可きなり」御聖訓。
試練こそ成長の好機だ。
勇んで題目を唱え
豊かな境涯を開こう!

--WAGA TOMO NI OKURU--
"NAN KITARU O MOTTE ANRAKU TO
  KOKOROU BEKI NARI" GOSEIKUN.
SHIREN KOSO SEICHO NO KOKI DA.
ISANDE DAIMOKU O TONAE
  YUTAKA NA KYOGAI O HIRAKO!
