      EVENT DETAILS
      Introduction to Buddhism Meeting

      This meeting is a great chance to learn about Nichiren Buddhism as well engage in discussion on how this Buddhism can be used within our daily life. All are welcome.

      The fundamental component of practice of Buddhism is chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, which is the name of the Mystic Law that govern life eternally through-out the universe. All life is a manifestation of this law. When we chant this Mystic Law, we are affirming the same law within our life, thereby aligning our life to the rhythm of the universe.

      Chanting also draws forth our Buddha nature bringing about a strong life force, wisdom, good fortune and compassion to face the challenges in front of us.

      Many might find it hard to grasp how the sound of one single phrase can bring about a tremendous effect not only to our own life condition but to others as well. Just like the sounds of beautiful music that can generate happy thoughts and feelings, the sounds of

      Nam-myoho-renge-kyo creates and gives positive feelings. Chanting the phrase and hearing it,will bring an enlightened state of life.

      The power of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo goes beyond knowing the superficial meaning of the phrase. One should try chanting to experience the power of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo in his own life.

      A song might read beautiful lyrics, hearing it with melody makes more meaningful experience.
