The Unsurpassed Good Fortune and Benefit of Faith

The Unsurpassed Good Fortune and Benefit of Faith

Soka Gakkai 2nd president Josei Toda used to say quite matter of factly: We deliberately chose to be born poor and sick so that we could spread the Mystic Law through demonstrating the transformative power of faith to others.

Our current circumstances are like a role that we have taken on this lifetime in order to fulfill our mission in accord with our eternal vow to lead others to happiness.

Since we have embarked faith in the Gohonzon, the supreme object of devotion in the entire world, there is no adverse situation we cannot overcome.

Let us activate the protective functions of the universe by powerfully chanting Nam MyoHo Renge Kyo and win without fail.

Daisaku Ikeda
(Living the Gosho, pg 113)
