Spiritual Silk Road

As long as members of a family, an organization or a community each act out of egoistic motives, there will be a gulf between them. Only when one purifies his life to the point where he desires not only his own happiness but also others’ will a “spiritual Silk Road” be created. Soka Gakkai International President Ikeda, in a speech at Moscow State University declared there is a pressing need for a spiritual Silk Road connecting the minds and hearts of the peoples of the world. I think we also need a spiritual Silk Road on a smaller scale – one which connects us to our families, to our organization, and to our community
