The Mystic Power of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo
I’ve been on the non secular path since my delivery and I’ve had the blessings of many divine souls and personalities–both dwelling and non-living. Deeply influenced by Hindu gods and after a quick stint with atheism throughout my faculty days within the Seventies I found Jesus Christ as my private saviour. However quickly thereafter I found Sri Aurobindo by means of his writings within the library of St. Stephen’s Faculty, New Delhi. I additionally got here in contact with The Divine Mom of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry. I regard myself as an exponent of Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Yoga believing within the maxim “All life is Yoga.”
In my lengthy journey of ups and downs in life, I additionally skilled the grace and blessings of Sai Baba of Shirdi. Nevertheless, the turning level got here in 2007 when a pal launched me to the mantra “Nam Myoho Renge Kyo” and requested me to chant it together with determinations about my objectives. I didn’t ask him for the which means of the mantra and simply went on chanting it. Quickly I skilled many advantages regarding funds, well being and relationships.
My pal informed me that Nam Myoho Renge Kyo was revealed by a Japanese Buddhist monk Nichiren Daishonin who lived within the thirteenth century. Nichiren intensively studied the Buddhist scriptures and got here to the conclusion that the Lotus Sutra was the panacea for reworking the individuals’s struggling and main them to the state of absolute happiness. He additional affirmed that each one human beings possessed the Buddha nature and will attain Buddhahood. Chanting of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, the title of the Lotus Sutra, alone will allow individuals to achieve Buddhahood and have the power and knowledge to problem and overcome all challenges. Nichiren established that the observe of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo was able to awakening our and others’ happiness.
Each time I used to be below stress or I confronted opposed conditions in life, I used to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo until I noticed breakthroughs.
The interval between 2012 and 2015 was of intense battle. I severely began chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo in mid-2014 and I’m glad to say that I turned a member of the Bharat Soka Gakkai (BSG)–the Indian offshoot of the Soka Gakkai Worldwide (SGI) in January 2015. There are a number of sects which are adherents of Nichiren Buddhism—the fundamental being Nichiren Shoshu and the Soka Gakkai.
I’ve been repeatedly attending month-to-month dialogue conferences that are held within the districts the place members take part in a number of Gakkai actions, recite Gongyo and chant Daimoku (Nam Myoho Renge Kyo) and share experiences. Company are welcome to attend these conferences. I repeatedly learn the Goshos—the writings of Nichiren Daishonin. It’s somewhat uncanny that the Goshos written centuries in the past have relevance even now. Senior leaders in religion additionally advocate studying the phrases of SGI President Daisaku Ikeda obtainable by means of his massive variety of books. We regard Mr. Ikeda, now in his eighties, as our Sensei and try to forge a mentor-disciple relationship primarily based on religion, observe and examine. .
I’ve had a number of victories together with expiation of economic, well being and relationship karmas which I’ve shared within the conferences. What has appealed to me essentially the most is on our human revolution and sharing our religion with others.
Nichiren’s Buddhism is an unlimited topic and I’ll try to share my data in subsequent articles.
