--TO MY FRIENDS--
Nichiren Daishonin affirms,
“You have associated with a friend
  in the orchid room and have
  become as straight as mugwort
 growing among hemp.”(*)
Our organization is a gathering of
  "good friends."
Let's find a good senior in faith with
  whom we can discuss any problems
  we are facing.

(*)"On Establishing the Correct Teaching for the Peace of the Land," WND-1, 23)
 "A friend in the orchid room" indicates a person of virtue. The implication is that the company of a virtuous person works as a good influence, just as one is imbued with fragrance on entering a room filled with orchids. It is said that mugwort supported by hemp plants grows upright.

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