Today marks the 65th anniversary of Shindoin’s passing. His determination in upholding truth and doing what is right, especially during difficult times, is the foundation of the practice we hold close to our hearts.
Shindoin displayed profound inner strength as he courageously battled with degenerative hip disease brought about by tubercular infection. He continued to place others before himself, selfless to the end despite his deteriorating physical condition. He said “It’s all right if I don’t get well. Seeing even one more person freed from suffering is what makes me happiest.”
