About The Enlightening Messages Part II: Eternal Buddha in Us, in the World

This booklet is derived from Nichiou Shonin Kyoke Shu, which was originally published by the Oushi-Kai of Butsugenji on June 10, 1989. The translation of the text has been done through permission of the copyright proprietor of the original work.


On this blog, we are introducing a bit of the story as quotes.


“Both the Pure Land and hell are not removed from the Saha world (“the land of endurance,” the world in which we live in).

The place were we are now living does truly become a Pure Land and also hell.

Whether we make it a Pure Land, as well as hell, depends on our mental attitude.

As was stated by the Saint’s writings, Buddhism had lost its unity, the people had gone astray from the real Truth, and when morality and the mind becomes corrupt, natural disasters occur frequently, and troubles arise from both within and without the country.

These are clearly described.

Moreover, the relationship between the country, people and teachings are explain carefully in detail.

When I think about the fact that our temple, in the holy land of Izu, is the place of enlightenment to return to the Lotus Sutra, rectify the people’s minds, pray for the peace of the country, and correct the conditions of society, I believe that it is truly the time to look again at the spirit of the Rissho Ankoku Ron.”
