Buddha’s Promise: Peace & Security

Myoho-Renge-Kyo is the Buddha nature all living beings possess. The Buddha nature is the Dharma nature. And the Dharma nature is enlightenment….Thus, if you chant this title of Myoho-Renge-Kyo once, the Buddha nature of all living beings will be called and gather around you. The three enlightened properties of the Law, wisdom, and compassionate action of the Dharma nature within you will be drawn forth and then clearly emerge. This is described as attaining Buddhahood.

Nichiren Daishonin, 13th century Japan
