A common mortal becomes a Buddha understanding the essence of the word “determination.”
written by Nichiren Daishonin in 13th century Japan
In order to change or grow your good karma, you need to select the correct teaching. It is necessary to study the teaching strictly from three standpoints — good reason (dori), documentary proof, and actual proof.
The word dori (good reason) encompasses within it truly profound, broad significance, including the “way” or “path” and “natural principles.” Within the idea of a path, there are a multitude of paths—low paths, high paths, correct paths, and mistaken paths, and there are also the paths of the Ten Worlds and those of cause and effect (Karma). It contains within it the Law or realm of the ultimate reality as it is known in Buddhism.

To learn about a core Buddhist concept, Karma, visit our Buddhist Temple Sunday, April 3rd, at 2:00 pm. Our Chief Priest will lecture on Karma, teach you how to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and properly use the Juzu Beads, Buddhist prayer beads. You will have the opportunity to ask questions directly of our Chief Priest. The meeting starts at 2:00 pm and concludes around 3:15 pm. Open to the public.
If you have decided to become a Buddhist or are interested in learning how to become a Buddhist, Rev Murata will be performing the Acceptance of the Precept Ceremony, the ceremony where you become a Buddhist, immediately following the meeting.
