--TO MY FRIENDS--
In the midst of hardships, we need
to strengthen human bonds more
Let's convey voices of love and care
and help relieve friends of their
worries and anxieties.
Let's become people of action who
"remove suffering and impart joy."(*)
(*)In Japanese, "bakku-yoraku": the practice of compassion in Buddhism. Compassion is interpreted as encompassing the two merciful deeds: saving other people from their sufferings and giving them peace and delight.
Tentative translation of "To My Friends" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance.
