Happiness

It is impossible to build one’s own happiness on the unhappiness of others.
This perspective is at the heart of Buddhist teachings.


Daisaku Ikeda

Don’t be disheartened

Even if things don’t unfold the way you expected,
don’t be disheartened or give up.

One who continues to advance will win in the end.

Overcoming Hardships

Nothing can match the strength of those whose lives have been shaped
and forged through challenging and overcoming hardships.
Such people fear nothing.

The purpose of our Buddhist practice is to develop such strength and fortitude. To cultivate such an invincible core is in itself a victory. It is also the greatest benefit.

Those who can succeed in this endeavor will savor unsurpassed happiness; they can manifest the supreme state of Buddhahood.
