Encouragement – to foster and support, at the individual level. #TDE

2 Aug

I wanted to share today’s Daily Encouragement with you.

"The greater our efforts to advance kosen-rufu (#WorldPeace), the greater the benefit and eternal good fortune we will accumulate in our lives.

The more outstanding people we can foster, the stronger and healthier we will become.

The more aware we are of our responsibility, the more joy we will experience. Such are the workings of the Buddhist Law."

"…. Gratitude is the ability to see and appreciate this other almost magical economy. G. K. Chesterton wrote that “thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”… "
