New Year’s Greetings from the Shinbashira

May I extend my warmest New Year’s greetings to all of you. Please accept my gratitude for the efforts you devoted to the path of single-hearted salvation during the past year.

While social conditions have been growing tougher recently, I hope we can make further progress toward world salvation this year by having the spirit of single-heartedness with God, following Oyasama’s Divine Model, and continuing to fulfill the aspirations of our predecessors.

It is important for us who walk the path to not only learn the teachings and aim to do hinokishin on a daily basis but also extend a helping hand to people who are suffering and advance toward the Joyous Life together with them. May each of us renew our determination to do these things and spiritedly work day after day so that we may respond to God the Parent’s intention.
