--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.
