社中初釜で使われたお軸は「福寿雙生」といい「福と寿が共に生きている」というおめでたいごと尽くしのお言葉だそうです。こちらはサンフランシスコ日蓮寺開創者の石田日天大僧正のお手によるものです。

The scroll used for our hatsugama is: “fuku ju so’u se’i.”  It means “fuku” (fortune)(福) and “ju” (happiness)(寿) live together (雙生), thus making these words very auspicious.  The calligraphy was done by the San Francisco Nichiren Temple’s founder Archbishop Nitten Ishida.
