To all the victims of the Haiti Earthquake


            On January 12th of this year a large earthquake devastated Haiti causing widespread destruction, loss of life and suffering of the Haitian people.   We of Nichiren-shu Buddhism wish to honor those who perished in the disaster and offer our prayers to them, their families and all those who are suffering.   We pray for a rapid recovery and humbly offer our assistance as we search for the best way to do so.

In Gassho,
