On a spring day in the year 1253, a Buddhist priest, Nichiren Daishonin, began to chant and teach 'Nam-myogo-renge-kyo.' In these words was the universal truth through which he had attained enlightenment. He taught that, by chanting this phrase, all people...regardless of ability or understanding...could actually activate their potential for enlightenment and happiness.
Rooted in the beliefs of this 13th century Japanese priest, Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism teaches that spiritual and material blessings can become available in this life. Richard Causton explains the teachings and their history and provides examples of how followers have found their full potential within this daily practice. He shows how personal goals can be combined with a commitment to world peace, ecology, and the easing of suffering through the daily recitation of the Lotus Sutra...a central teaching of Buddhism...and chanting.
The practice of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism involves the determination to transform one's own character and to see the transformation through to the very end.
