Spending our time doing what we please may bring momentary pleasure, but it will not bring us true and lasting joy; we cannot become great artists or great actors of life--we cannot become great human beings. Literature, music and drama are all to be found in our activities for faith--in our prayers, our challenges to develop ourselves through SGI activities and our efforts to educate others. All value is encompassed in these activities. This is the profound realm of Buddhism.
