Re: four treasures in Nichiren Buddhism

most important thing is all this is you. The gods are you. when chanting with this Gohonzon it is important to concentrate on the ODaimoku and just realize it is inside you..the qualities are being nourished , so are the gods which you are.
good luck

Re: benefits from chanting

Many people only address suffering in the moment, i.e. they react to the effect. When the effect is gone so is their need to address it. In this age people are ignorant to causation. In the western world it seems even more of a mystery among the masses. This fundamental ignorance does allow people ...
