A Happy New Year to you all!
How was your last year? I hope everyone has done satisfying missionary works and accumulated much merit through them.
Last summer, I came back to Kosenji, Nishinomiya, which I originally belong to, after discharging my 4-year duty of the 25th head priest’s secretary. Now I am totally back to normal life of a priest. Now that i reviewing the past 4 years, every moment I spent with my master, Rev. Nichikai Yamauchi was a precious treasure for my experience. Furthermore, all dreams that i had as an ordinary man before entering the priesthood like visiting Italy and other foreign countries, watching a gorgeous sunset of Los Angeles, and meeting foreign people speaking English. I experienced so many unexpected Genshi no Goriyaku, meritorious rewards from the Buddha because I devoted myself to serving the 25th HBS head priest.
I am now so happy because all my wishes have been fulfilled thanks to the merit gained through the four-year serving. This is telling that I am now ready to concentrate my whole life on spreading the faith of the Lotus Sutra all over the world.
My New Year’s resolution? For now, it is, of course…updating this blog 😉
I hope you all have a wonderful year!
