Chanting Odaimoku, Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, our universal mantra, is important.
Before Buddha Shakyamuni expanded more sutra, lotus sutra already existed.
Because of this, Lotus sutra is very profound. Later, St. Nichiren, aka spread Odaimoku in Japan.
Namu means to believe in, or to devote myself, coming from “namasu” in India.
Myoho Renge Kyo is the Lotus Sutra of exquisite teaching. There are a lot of spiritual meanings as well.
The chanting of Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō is like a metronome for piano practice.
By chanting Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, the tension we have in our mind will relieve from us. It is a spiritual relaxation for us. A lot of information we see from the news is negative. We need to release this tension by chanting Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō.
When we feel stressed or angry, please chant. When we chant Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, a light cheerful feeling comes up and we will no longer think of negative emotion.
If we wish to overcome our difficulties with our own ability, we should restore our presentence of mine. This will enable us by chanting the master of life.
Each one of us has both good and bad sides. Good side of us is called Buddha nature, and the bad side of us is called evil nature. Examples of bad side of us are coming from anger, anxiety and hunger. On the other hand, we also have good sides such as caring others, loving others and compassion.
To expand our Buddha nature, chanting will enrage your Buddha nature.
When your Buddha nature is expanded, you will smile more. You will feel more energy, and calm in your mind.
Odaimoku has the power of healing yourself and expanding your Buddha nature.
