Buddhism: A Ship to Cross the Sea of Suffering

“A Ship to Cross the Sea of Suffering”
Anyone who teaches others even a single phrase of the Lotus Sutra is clearly the Buddha’s envoy, whether he be priest or nun, lay man or woman.

written by Nichiren Daishonin, April 28, 1281

Buddhism’s core teaching is the emancipation of human suffering through learning about the Law of Causality. The lotus flower is a symbol of this core concept in Buddhism. It is the goal of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism to share the Law and educate people about Buddhism. These teachings, because they are deeply embedded in reality, have the power to lead people to healthy, satisfying and productive lives.
