Determination To Succeed

Determined To SucceedThe world’s population has just passed seven billion, and our small planet is obviously not getting any bigger. To support all these hungry mouths we have to collaborate more closely than ever, to stop fighting and start farming.

All those hundreds of years ago, Nichiren was utterly convinced we could change even the most dire and painful reality, including the danger of war, and indeed that it was imperative that we do so.

This conviction underlies his unwavering determination to create a peaceful society by disseminating the teachings of Buddhism. This is why we are working with endless determination today, to achieve Kosen Rufu, World Peace.

    This is so true. We must work together if there is to be true peace and happiness on a global scale.

      Hi Jason, my worry is that the fly in the ointment is that such much of the western economy is based on defence and weapons sales. Until we can make peace as profitable as war, we are swimming against the tide. Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained eh?
