・We have faith in the Eternal Buddha Shakyamuni who
 embodies the great life-force of the universe.

・Our faith is based on
the teachings of Ekayana (One
 Vehicle) Buddhism which includes core Buddhist
 teachings and the wisdom of the Lotus Sutra.

・Through the study and practice of these teachings, we
 recognize and respect the buddha-nature in ourselves
 and others.

・We follow the bodhisattva way to perfect ourselves and
 to bring peace to our families, communities, countries
 and to the world.
