Those who honestly discard the expedient teachings, put faith only in the Lotus Sutra, and chant Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, will transform the three paths of earthly desires, karma, and suffering into the three virtues of the property of the Law, wisdom, and emancipation. The three-fold contemplation and the three truths will immediately manifest in their minds, and the place where they dwell will become the land of eternally tranquil light.
written by Nichiren Daishonin, 13th century Japan
When we sincerely practice Buddhism, we can gain a purified and steady mind; we can develop deep wisdom and compassion; and we can enjoy the condition of being able to control our own lives freely. Then, we can attain Buddhahood in our present form and overcome all of our sufferings.
