[To My Friends] WOW MON 7 AUG 2017–Let’s all make a joyful advance with the heart of a youthful BOE

Our Soka Family gatherings(*) are the
hope of our communities and the world.
Let’s all make a joyful advance with the
heart of a youthful Bodhisattva of the Earth,
together with our young friends, treasures
who brim with the spirit of
“from the Indigo, an even deeper blue.”(**)

(*)Summer activities for Future Division members that include activities attended by their parents and grandparents. (Future Division in Japan include young people from age 6 to around 18.)

(**)”Hell is the Land of Tranquil Light,” WND I, p. 457
This allegory of the indigo plant is often used to indicate the disciple growing to surpass the mentor or to describe how deepening one’s practice leads to strengthening one’s faith. This expression is based on a passage in the classical Chinese work Hsün Tzu, “Great Concentration and Insight.”
