In this Amazing book on Prayer I wanted to share a quote that President Ikeda had said:


"Who answers our Prayers?

We do- through faith and effort.

No one does it for us."


When we are chanting, we are calling out from our lives the answers we need to have that Prayer realized. The benefits we receive, and whether we perceive them as positive or negative, they are always benefits to move our lives forward in the direction they need to be in order for those Prayers to be answered. We must take those benefits and create Victories. Those Victories, those Benefits come from US. It is nothing outside of us, the Gohonzon is our mirror and ALWAYS shows us what we need to change in ourselves and our lives to WIN. From that Victory we can show others ACTUAL PROOF and move our life in the direction WE WANT IT TO GO and confidently move Kosen Rufu forward. WE MUST WIN. THIS BUDDHISM SHOWS ACTUAL PROOF. OUR LIVES ARE ACTUAL PROOF OF THE POWER OF THIS BUDDHISM. 

Many of us have been chanting for years for Prayers to be answered, isn't NOW the time to make that happen? NOW, FORWARD, ALWAYS FORWARD.  I look forward to hearing all of your Many Victories!
