"To My Friends" and "Words of the Week" are published in the Soka Gakkai's organizational newspaper, the Seikyo Shimbun, and are based on President Ikeda's recent guidances gleaned from his speeches, etc. While they are specifically targeted at the Japanese audience, the encouragement and guidance in faith contained therein are universal in spirit and application.
