Chinese Editions of Daisaku Ikeda’s “Daily Encouragement for Women” Released
Newly revised edition of “Daily Encouragement for Women” in simplified Chinese
SICHUAN, China: Sichuan People’s Publishing House released a new edition of Josei ni okuru sanbyaku-rokuju-go-nichi (tentative title: Daily Encouragement for Women) by Daisaku Ikeda in simplified Chinese with revised translations and updated designs from the previously published book by the same publisher.
Earlier in the year, the simplified and traditional Chinese editions of the same work were launched as eBooks. The book consists of 365 selected passages and encouraging quotations of particular relevance to women from Mr. Ikeda’s various essays and other written works composed over the years.
This book is dedicated to women with hopes for their lives to be filled with happiness and victory and includes excerpts such as:
“Happiness is not determined by family lineage, educational background or physical attributes. Nor is it based on fortune or social standing. Happiness is determined by your own heart”
* * *
“There is nothing more noble, strong and beautiful, or indestructible as a woman’s spirit living for justice.”
This book of wise advice on achieving happiness is now available in hardcopy and an easily accessible electronic format for all Chinese readers.
