--TO MY FRIENDS--
The new era will be created by the
  passion and power of youth.
You, young people who exemplify the spirit
  "from the Indigo, an even deeper blue,"(*)
  let's ascend the new summit of kosen-rufu
  in high spirits!

(*)"Hell is the Land of Tranquil Light," WND I, p. 457
This allegory of the indigo plant is often used to indicate the disciple growing to surpass the mentor or to describe how deepening one's practice leads to strengthening one's faith. This expression is based on a passage in the classical Chinese work titled "Hsün Tzu." "Great Concentration and Insight" reads, "From the indigo, an even deeper blue."

Tentative translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance. (write tmf.daily[at]gmail.com for daily mailings)
 
--わが友に贈る--
新しい世紀を創るのは
青年の熱と力なり。
従藍而青の君たちよ
新たな広布の峰を
勇んで登攀しよう!

--WAGA TOMO NI OKURU--
ATARASHII SEIKI O TSUKURU NO WA
  SEINEN NO NETSU TO CHIKARA NARI.
JURAN NISHO NO KIMITACHI YO
  ARATA NA KOFU NO MINE O
  ISANDE TOHAN SHIYO!
