Dear Mariano:

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your profound words of sympathy and hearty prayers of mercy toward the Japanese people in crisis.

I and my family have just come back home in peace after our short evacuation trip. Fortunately the danger of nuclear contamination in our country seems to be passing over the worst through the heroic and all-out efforts of the people concerned.

I believe the earnest and merciful prayers, which are being offered from all over the world toward us, are giving the Japanese people spiritual strength for overcoming this violent situation.

I believe the people of our country can surely achieve a rapid rehabilitation from this national crisis.

I sincerely appreciate your merciful concern for us and our country.

Please give our best regards to your family and sangha.

Yours truly,

Dear Mariane:

I am deeply grateful to you for your very sympathetic and warm words to the Japanese people and us.

The dreadful agonies caused by that catastrophic disaster are beginning to diminish little by little through the strong will of the disaster victims to live and the self-sacrificing efforts of the countless rescue persons.

Very fortunately, Kamakura-city where we live remains safe at the present time except for the potential risk of nuclear contamination by the destroyed nuclear power plant.

I and my family could escape from that disaster by chance, and so we continue to offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to all the victims of that sudden tragic misfortune.

Thank you heartily for your warmhearted sympathy and great encouragement to us.

With best regards,
