--WORDS OF THE WEEK--
The Daishonin stated,
"The ray of light from the daimoku reaches
  all the way to the hell of incessant suffering
  and makes it possible for [the deceased] to attain
  Buddhahood then and there."(*)
Chanting daimoku based on the spirit of
  "practice for oneself and others" serves
  as the ultimate memorial for the deceased.
Together, let's embark on a journey to
  manifest in our lives the four noble virtues
  of "eternity, joy, true self and purity."

(*)The Orally Transmitted Teachings, p. 17

Tentative translation of "Words of the Week" published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda's recent guidance. (Note: Monday, August 13, 2018, is a press holiday)

--今週の言葉--
「題目の光 無限に至りて
即身成仏せしむ」
自行化他の題目こそ
最高の追善回向なり。
常楽我浄の旅を共々に!

--KONSHU NO KOTOBA--
"DAIMOKU NO HIKARI MUGEN NI
  ITARITE SOKUSHIN JOBUTSU SESHIMU."
JIGYO KETA NO DAIMOKU KOSO
  SAIKO NO TSUIZEN EKO NARI.
JO-RAKU-GA-JO NO TABI O TOMODOMO NI!
