–TO MY FRIENDS–
Let’s welcome discussion meeting
  participants with heartfelt greetings
 “showing [them] the same respect you
  would a Buddha.”(*)
 Sincere actions will cause
  waves of joy to spread.

(*)”The Fourteen Slanders,” WND 1 p. 757
(phrase from Chapter 28 of the Lotus Sutra: “You should rise and greet him from afar, showing him the same respect you would a Buddha.”)

Translation of “To My Friends” published in the Seikyo Shimbun, based on President Ikeda’s recent guidance, with universal value and application.

 真心で迎えよう!
 誠実の振る舞いから
 歓喜の波動は広がる!
