Happy New Year!
I would like to express my deepest appreciation to all of you for the sincerity you brought to the work of the path last year despite the ongoing difficulties.
As we have entered the new year, the first year of the “three years, one thousand days” period leading up to the 140th Anniversary of Oyasama has now begun.
Oyasama sought to hasten the salvation of all people in the world even by shortening Her term of life and has been working as ever before by virtue of Her eternal life. In order to respond to Her parental love, let us vigorously advance our work of single-hearted salvation with the Divine Model as our guiding principle.
I look forward to working with you once again this year.
