This Sunday, January 19th at 11 am our Chief Priest, Rev. Murata, will talk about the Lotus Sutra and the Buddhist Concept of the Ten Worlds. Join us to learn about Buddhism, it’s profundity, and how it can change your life.
The Gosho, “Teaching, Practice and Proof” states:
The five characters of Myoho-Renge-Kyo which are the heart of the Essential Teaching of the Lotus Sutra (Honmon), contain all the benefits amassed by the beneficial practices and meritorious deeds of all the Buddhas of the past, present and future. Thus, how can this phrase not include the Buddha’s precepts? Once the practitioner embraces this perfectly endowed mystic precept, he cannot break it, even if he should try. Therefore, it is called the precept of the diamond chalice.
(Gosho, p.1109; cf. MW, vol 4, p.129)
