From the bottom of my heart, I express my deepest sympathy to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in East Japan.

I am deeply saddened that so many precious lives were lost, due to this great disaster.

I offer my heartfelt prayer for the peace and happiness of those who fell victim to this tragedy. At the same time, I would like to express my deep condolences to the survivors.

I offer my sincere prayer for the healing of the survivors and a strong recovery from this calamity.

I ask the members of our local Nichiren Shoshu temples affected by this disaster to please believe in the power of the mystic Law (Myoho). I offer my prayer for you to overcome this great obstacle with strong and unwavering faith.

Please accept my sincere expression of sympathy.
