Bro, here is something I pick up recently:

"Buddhism is respected because of people whose actions demonstrate its greatness. But people may also degrade Buddhism so that it is shunned even by those who have sought it long and earnestly. It is important for those who treasure its teachings to practice them and show actual proof of their validity. The supreme Law itself is absolute and unchanging, throughout eternity: but whether or not people realize its greatness depends on the determination of those who embrace it." – Ikeda, human revolution, pg 149.

Keep up the good work.

Dear Frankie,
I'd like to share with you one of my favourite Sensei's Guidance in Vol.1, Guidance today : " When one prays earnestly to the Gohonzon with a mind of faith, all the problems occurring in the realities of daily life - that is, the sufferings arising from illusions or as the effects of bad karma - can be perceived as and actually transformed into, influences leading to enlightened wisdom and benefit. This great road of happiness lies in our daily life, based upon faith."
