Guidance from Ikeda Sensei
Tuesday, November 25, 2008 at 11/25/2008 07:05:00 PM
A recent daily guidance from Ikeda Sensei :

"When we challenge ourselves in trying times, we can accumulate tremendous benefit.
Benefit is manifested in many different ways.
Sometimes undergoing a trial that seems more like punishment opens the way to happiness.
It's like surgery or an injection- they may hurt but they can restore your health.
Even in the most desperate of circumstances, if we challenge ourselves through strong faith,
we can gain true great benefit.
This is the profound teaching of the Daishonin."

Suyi wrote it on a sticker paper thingy and passed to me yesterday when we met up.

After reading it, I am really encouraged by Sensei's guidance. I am very sure if I were to tell what I have gone through, he would definitely say the same thing to me.

I am really thankful to him, if he did not do world-wide kosen-rufu, I wouldn't have known this Nichiren Buddhism. Suyi will be going to Japan next week and she will be visiting the HQ in Japan. I am going to write a letter to Sensei to thank him.
