— TO MY FRIENDS —
This is the faith that enables us to develop
a life condition of supreme value.
If we exert ourselves in the two ways of practice and study,
we are certain to become people
who can appreciate everything in life and
who are never defeated by anything!
Let’s therefore, advance along the great and correct path
of our human revolution.

Gongyo‚ÄĒreciting portions of the Lotus Sutra and chanting¬†Nam-myoho-renge-kyo‚ÄĒis a ceremony in which our lives commune with the universe. It allows us to fully open the¬†storehouse of treasures¬†that resides within us, and¬†tap¬†limitless wisdom, compassion, and courage from the wellspring of our lives.

‚Äč

“Our vibrant gongyo will not fail to bring forth¬†a¬†vigorous life force.¬†Nichiren Daishonin¬†writes:

The neighing of the white horses is the sound of our voices chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. When Brahma, Shakra, the gods of the sun and moon, the four heavenly kings, and the others hear this sound, how could they fail to take on a healthy colour and shine with a brilliant light? How could they fail to guard and protect us? We should be firmly convinced of this!¬†(WND-1, 989‚Äď90).”
