May I extend my warmest Season’s Greetings to all of you. I am truly thankful for the efforts you made during the past year in sprinkling the fragrance of the teachings and helping save others in many parts of the world.
This year, we will be finally observing the 130th Anniversary of Oyasama. Let all of us unite our minds to perform the Anniversary Service.
I hope thereafter that we will all use the strength that we have developed through “three years, one thousand days” pre-anniversary activities to enhance the substance of the activities that we conduct in ordinary times.
Let us all take a fresh new step forward in high spirits so that we may make steady progress toward the Joyous Life.
May I ask for your continued efforts during this new year.
New Year’s Day, 2016 (Tenrikyo 179)
