In the SGI, the district (local area of people) is where everything starts.
Our weekly district discussion meetings and our connections with our fellow members are the life-blood of our peace movement. We must protect them at all costs.
But sometimes, conflict arises within our districts and between members. Tempers flare, egos run amok. It happens to us all, we are only human.
But it is vitally important to challenge these obstacles and using our practice with abundant daimoku and heartfelt dialogue and transform them. We simply must transform them.
Afterall, if we are not able to transform differences within our own districts what hope have we got for world peace?
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
