SUCH A PROFOUND PRACTICE THAT TRULY OPENS THE DOOR TO BUDDHAHOOD TO ALL WHO TAKE UP THE SWORD AND SHIELD OF NAM-MYOHO-RENGE-KYO AND FAITH THAT ONE IS A MASTER WARRIOR.

IT HAS BEEN ABOUT TWO YEARS SINCE I HAVE JOINED THE S G I AND IT HAS BEEN NEARLY A MONTH OR SO SINCE I HAVE REALLY UNDERSTOOD THE PROFUNDITY OF THIS BUDDHISM. MY DAILY LIFE IS ADVANCING FEROCIOUSLY TOWARD THE CORRECT CAUSE AND CORRECT INTENT. ALL OF MY PERVERSE DESIRES ARE NATURALLY REVEALING PROFOUND WISDOM AND COMPASSION WHEN THEY ARE PUT FORTH IN MY PRAYERS TO THE LIVING GOHONZON INSIDE OF MY 5 FOOT NINE INCH BODY.

DAISAKU IKEDA WRITES “MUST ADVANCE TOWARD THE DAWN, NEVER WAVERING IN MY CONVICTION, FOLLOWING MY LIFE LONG, NO, MY ETERNAL MENTOR.” (YD IKEDA 3)

THAT PASSAGE APPLIES TO MY CONNECTION WITH DAISAKU IKEDA. DAISAKU WAS REFERRING TO JOSEI TODA AND NOW I AM THE DISCIPLE OF DAISAKU IKEDA. THE VISION OF DR. IKEDA IS BOUNDLESS AND PROFOUND, AND THE ASPIRATIONS HE HOLDS FOR THE YOUTH OF THE U.S.A. IS EQUALLY GREAT. I WILL FULFILL HIS DESIRES REGARDING AMERICA’S YOUTH AND THE ROLE SGI-USA WILL HAVE IN THE KOSEN-RUFU MOVEMENT.

I HAVE MANY ASPIRATIONS OF MY OWN AND ONE OF THEM IS DEEPLY EXPRESSED IN DAISAKU IKEDA’S WORDS: “WILL DEVELOP MY EDITING TO THE LIMITS OF MY ABILITY, TREATING IT AS MY DEAREST FRIEND, OR AS MY LOVER.” (YD IKEDA 3)

I RECEIVED THE JOYFUL NEWS TODAY THAT THE CSUN SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED.
