Encouragement for the Student Division

"The student division is a gathering that inspires immense hope, with many of the world's foremost thinkers and scholars looking to its members to continue the spiritual struggle for truth and justice."

"Like the young eagle taking flight depicted on the Soka Gakkai student division flag, student division members are spreading their wings of intellect and passionate conviction and struggling valiantly to create a hope-filled future for the world. You, the bright young men and women of the student division, are indeed the new shining stars of hope for the next 50 years. I call on all of you to follow in my footsteps! Advance boldly and cheerfully along this great and glorious path of mentor and disciple!"
