Life!

Life contains the capacity, like flames that reach toward heaven, to transform suffering and pain into the energy of value-creation, the light that illuminates the dark.

Like the wind traversing vast spaces unhindered, life has the power to uproot and overturn all obstacles and difficulties.

Like clear flowing water, it can wash away all stains and impurities.

And finally, life, like the great Earth that sustains plants and vegetation, impartially embraces all people with its compassionate, nurturing force.

~ Daisaku Ikeda, SGI Buddhist leader, philosopher, poet, educator
