14 Feb 2019 Youth Believers Training Course (YBTC)
11 Senja Road
—Walking the Path of Happiness for Oneself and Others!
To continue our efforts to help our youth believers, members who are new to faith, or family members who have yet to participate in SSA activities to further deepen their understanding of SSA and Nichiren Buddhism, SSA youth division will hold the YBTC which aims to help youth participants answer some fundamental questions, such as:
(a) What is this faith about?
(b) How does this faith and chanting work?
(c) Why should I practice?
Youth is a season of emotional turmoil and suffering… If a plane tries to take off without taxiing down the runway and gradually building up speed, it won’t succeed. And even if it takes off, if it lacks sufficient fuel and good maintenance, it won’t stay in the air long. It may even crash. Life and Buddhist practice are like a marathon. You may at times run out front and at times fall behind. But what matters is the final moment at the finish line. The training you undergo in your youth is all for that final, true victory. That’s why you need to study as hard as you can now. Keep chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo and build up a reservoir of life force.
— SGI President Daisaku Ikeda
We sincerely hope that this training course will support the youth participants’ journey of faith by helping them answer some of these questions and serve as an impetus for them to take one step forward to deepen their faith in Nichiren Buddhism.
