Gohonzon

The Gohonzon embodies the law of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo in the form of an object of worship (mandala). It is a visual expression of the fundamental Law to which Nichiren became enlightened, the fundamental order that permeates our life and the universe.

Faith, Practice and Study

There are three basic elements in applying Nichiren Buddhism to daily life: faith, practice and study. These are the primary ingredients in the recipe for revealing one's innate enlightened condition, or Buddhahood. Faith means to believe in the teachings of Nichiren and share his belief that all people have within them the highest potential. Practice means to chant Nam- myoho-renge-kyo, as well as to explain Nichiren's teachings to others. Study means to study and understand the Buddhist teachings.
