--TO MY FRIENDS--
Nichiren Daishonin states,
"Those who hear ... will attain
  Buddhahood
without fail."(*)
When people are able to make
  a connection with Buddhism,
  even if it is only a single sentence
  or phrase, they are able to gain
  boundless benefits.
Let's continue engaging in Buddhist
  dialogue for the sake of our friends!

(*)"The Four Debts of Gratitude," WND I, p. 42
Full quote: "Those who hear even a single sentence or phrase of the
  Lotus Sutra will attain Buddhahood without fail."

Tentative translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance.

--わが友に贈る--
【耳にふるる者は
既に仏になるべき」
仏法に一文一句でも
縁する功徳は絶大だ。
友のために語り抜こう!

--WAGA TOMO NI OKURU--
"MIMI NI FURURU MONO WA
  SUDE NI HOTOKE NI NARU BEKI.
BUPPO NI ICHIMON IKKU DEMO
  EN SURU KUDOKU WA ZETSUDAI DA.
TOMO NO TAME NI KATARI NUKO!
