My name is Stefano, i'm Italian, coming from Turin, living and working in Monaco Montecarlo. I started with Buddhism of Nichiren in 2006 and i became a member of the Soka Gakkai International in February 2007.
Since that time my life changed very much, the way how i live my life, the way i behave with other persons, and everyday i discover that is possible to face to life problems in a creative way, not as i was used till the time i started with this wonderful Buddhism.
So many thanks to Nichiren, many thanks to Soka Gakkai Internationa.

It enriches those who receive,
without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,
cheer to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone
until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
Thanks for taking time to read my long experience in faith!
So glad to have met you through this site. Will add you as a friend in faith.
Let's continue doing our best for kosen-rufu together with Sensei Ikeda.
