NEVER BE DEFEATED!!!!

We the Mentor's children
are lion cubs vowing
to teach other lion cubs,
with growing
passion and power

of ever-MORE-youthful spirit.
ac
Ours is the roar of lions,
of mentor and disciple
praying as one,
challenging all
injustice and suffering,
reaching at last
the ocean
of a human being,

prayer roaring
in our hearts
like the waves
crashing on the shore,

then bellowing
to crush
the angry
waves of the ocean
of humanity.

Cross the ocean
until
it becomes
a vast road,
to all hearts.

Every wall
that we encounter
seeming halting us
becomes
a road -
a door
into infinity.

Know
even in night,
clouds can never swallow
another's stars
that guided we must touch.

Every such star
we
transfom
into sun
rousing hope
in the other.
Summon the sun blazing
rising in your heart.
It is far more potent
than physical violence
of supernovas.

You will
absolutely
turn
those frowns upside down.

My friend,
no matter
the world turn
upside down,

you now have
a unique mission
working with others
to save the country.

My friend,
soak that sun in,
from the Mystic Law,
with your eyes,
your deeds -
the sun of
PASSION
AND HOPE!!!

Finally soar
upon that wind
on the infinite wings
of prayer and action!

For you do
the very Buddha's work.

You are more
than Shakytamuni,
who walked for fifty years,
to the very last step.

If we give up
partway,
we never
were sincere.

DO YOU WANT WORLD PEACE?
THIS BUDDHISM IS
TO TURN ANY ENEMY
INTO BEST FRIEND!

IF YOU DECIDE,
IT WILL BE WON!
