Seven Dimensions of Daisaku Ikeda’s Philosophy of Hope

To celebrate the publication of "Hope Is a Decision," a new collection of Daisaku Ikeda's essays, we asked co-editor of the volume Jeff Farr to share what he considers the main components of Daisaku Ikeda's philosophy of hope. In his essay, Farr shares this quote from Mr. Ikeda:

“Sometimes, it may be hard to see where—or how—to begin. But we cannot be paralyzed by despair. We must each take action toward the goals we have set and in which we believe. Rather than passively accepting things as they are, we must embark on the challenge of creating a new reality. It is in this effort that true, undying hope is to be found.”
