Quotes and Study

Here you will find my favorite quotes and exerts from some of my study ventures.

“Life is the foremost of all treasures. It is expounded that even the treasures of the entire major world system cannot equal the value of one’s body and life. Even the treasures that fill the major world system are no substitute for life”.

(WND-1, 1125) The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Volume 1, Page 1125


“Intellect will play a very important role in the coming age. By intellect I mean refined wisdom, clear reasoning, profound philosophy and broad-ranging knowledge. We are entering an age when people will develop intelligence and wisdom, infusing society with their new outlooks.”  (FIA,p.45) – Daisaku Ikeda (2/13/90)


“The Gosho, the collected writings of Nichiren Daishonin, elucidates the means for all people to attain enlightenment. It is the eternal teaching. The Gosho is a scripture of boundless hope. As long as we continue to study the Gosho and put its teachings into practice, we will definitely never become deadlocked.” (LG,p.7) -Daisaku Ikeda


On Justice: ” There is a saying that “Speech is silver, silence is golden.” But when you are engaged in a struggle, the opposite is true. Then, speaking out is golden and silence is defeat. It is vital that we speak out, that we boldly declare what is true and what is false. Unfounded criticisms must be rebutted and the record set straight. “(Dialogue 4, 1994)   From Faith into Action –Daisaku Ikeda.


On Hope: “Hope,” Beethoven cried, “you forge the heart into steel.” Hope is confidence. Hope is determination. Hope is courage. And faith is the ultimate expression of hope. Belief fortifies the heart. — Daisaku Ikeda
