--TO MY FRIENDS--
Nichiren Daishonin affirms,
"A person who upholds the Lotus Sutra
  is repaying the debt of gratitude owed
  to father and mother."(*)
Youthful successors--
  challenge yourself in the two ways
  of practice and study and be
  individuals who genuinely treat their
  parents with kindness and respect.

(*)"The Four Virtues and the Four Debts of Gratitude," (WND II, 638)
The next sentence reads, "Even if one does not feel in one's own heart that one can do so, one can repay it through the power of this sutra."  (https://www.nichirenlibrary.org/)


Tentative translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance. (write tmf_daily[at]icloud.com for daily mailings) 

--わが友に贈る--
「法華経を持つ人は
父と母との恩を報ずる」
後継の青年(きみ)よ!
行学の二道に励む
真の親孝行の人たれ!

--WAGA TOMO NI OKURU--
"HOKEKYO O TAMOTSU HITO WA
  CHICHI TO HAHA TO NO ON O HOZURU"
KOKEI NO KIMI YO!
SHIN NO OYAKOKO NO HITO TARE!
