Both the Treasure of the Buddha and the Treasure of the Law are invariably perpetuated by Priests. To illustrate, without firewood, there can be no fire, and if there is no earth, trees and plants cannot grow. Likewise, even though Buddhism existed, without the Priests who studied it and passed it on, it would never have been transmitted throughout the two thousand years of the Former and Middle Days into the Latter Day of the Law … (written by Nichiren Daishonin,13th century Japan)
The highest life condition is called “The Buddha,” “Buddhahood,” or “the Buddha nature.” Another name for it is “Myoho-Renge-Kyo.”
Buddhahood is a mighty force that manifests a solution to every kind of suffering. It is a source of energy which manifests in our daily lives. We aim to establish an absolutely indestructible life condition of inner strength, wisdom and peace grounded in the world of Buddhahood.
How can you develop the highest life condition? By practicing Buddhism, chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo and learning about the Treasure of the Buddha and the Treasure of the Law from a Buddhist priest.
