Dear Friends of the Dharma,
It is with great joy and gratitude that i write to you after recently returning from the President Niwano Celebration at RKNY Church. My joy was compounded by having the presence of Jen Yontz-Orlando with me to share this experience. Five members of NY Church gave testimonials before President Niwano, followed by the President sharing some wisdom with us. i will be sharing that wisdom with you later this month. But I felt the hearts of all of us in Fort Myers sangha were with us, and I gave him a pottery cup made by a local artist from all of us. Let us all follow his model of being bright, cheerful, kind, and open-hearted!
