Struggles Bring Forth Our Greatest Strength

Struggles Bring Forth Our Greatest Strength

It is precisely when we are battling hardships in life that we are able to bring forth the supreme power of the Buddha from within.

All struggles test and prove our strength leading us to the attainment of Buddhahood.

Nichiren Daishonin urges us to joyfully and courageously tackle problems and difficulties head-on. Simply lamenting our situation will not change it.

Overcoming hardships is essential to attaining enlightenment. That is the foundation of our practice as votaries of the Lotus Sutra.

With strong faith, let us enact joyful dramas of transforming karma and write a magnificent history of human revolution.
