--TO MY FRIENDS--
Let's take to heart Nichiren Daishonin's
   words, "But still I am not discouraged,"(*)
   and resolutely look ahead with optimism
   despite any difficulties that may confront us!
Let's uphold our Buddhist practice as
   courageous and wise individuals who are
   not swayed by the fickle winds of
   public opinion.

(*)"The Essentials for Attaining Buddhahood," WND I, p. 748.

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

--わが友に贈る--
「いまだこりず候」
いかなる苦難にも
決然と前を向くのだ!
毀誉褒貶に揺るがぬ
信仰の勇者・賢者たれ!

--WAGA TOMO NI OKURU--
"IMADA KORIZU SORO"
IKANARU KUNAN NI MO
   KETSUZEN TO MAE O MUKU NO DA!
KIYO-HONEN NI YURUGANU
   SHINKO NO YUSHA, KENJA TARE!
