Gosho Passage Explained by Sensei

"Exert yourself in the two ways of practice and study. Without practice and study, there can be no Buddhism."

President Ikeda said: "Practice refers to introducing the Daishonin's Buddhism to others, while study means studying the Daishonin's teachings. Without propagation and study, Buddhism cannot exist. This is what it means to correctly practise the Daishonin's Buddhism."

Upholding faith is the great path to happiness. Deepening your practice and understanding of Buddhism deepens your faith. This is why President Ikeda said to the future leaders; "No matter how busy you become with organisational issues, and regardless of what cultural activities you're promoting, never forget that the foundation of Gakkai activities is always the two ways of practice and study."
