--TO MY FRIENDS--
When you bow to a mirror,
  your reflection will bow back to you.(*)
When we engage in dialogue with respect
  for the other person, our Buddha nature
  will manifest itself.
Let's advance along the great path of happiness
  for oneself and others!

(*)The Record of the Orally Transmitted Teachings, p. 165
Actual full quote: "When one faces a mirror and makes a bow of obeisance: the image in the mirror likewise makes a bow of obeisance to oneself."

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

--わが友に贈る--
”鑑に礼拝すれば
映る姿に礼拝される”
相手を敬う対話は
わが仏性を薫発する。
自他共の幸福の大道を!

--WAGA TOMO NI OKURU--
"KAGAMI NI RAIHAI SUREBA
  UTSURU SUGAGA NI RAIHAI SARERU."
AITE O UYAMAU TAIWA WA
  WAGA BUSSHO O KUNPATSU SURU.
JITA TOMO NO KOFUKU NO DAIDO O!
