Buddhism: Conscious Awakening & Karma

The Buddhas of the three existences appear in the world with one ultimate thought — the Fourfold Purpose of the Buddha’s wisdom.

written by Nichiren Daishonin in 13th century Japan

As the “Expedient Means” (second) Chapter of the Lotus Sutra clearly explains, there is only one ultimate reason for the appearance of all Buddhas: to open the wisdom of the Buddha to all people, to show the wisdom of the Buddha to all people, to have all people awaken to the wisdom of the Buddha, and to have all people enter the path of the wisdom of the Buddha. (These four goals are called the “Fourfold Purpose of the Buddha’s wisdom — to open, show, awaken, and enter”).

Awaken to Change Your Karma

Buddhism shows you the path of awakening, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. If you are looking for your sense of meaning and purpose, calmness and happiness in a world of uncertainty, start your Buddhist practice. Visit Myosenji Temple Sunday, March 4th, at 2:00 pm for our Chief Priest’s lecture on Karma and how you can live life with joy and understanding.

  • Brief lecture by Chief Priest on the Buddhism’s Concept of Karma
  • Learn how to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and properly use the Juzu Beads, Buddhist prayer beads.
