Buddhism: Chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo

“When with our mouths we chant the Mystic Law, our Buddha nature, being summoned, will invariably emerge.”  (written by Nichiren Daishonin in 13th century Japan)

Just as the words “United States” includes within itself all the mountains, rivers, treasures and people of the United States, Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo includes within itself all of the teachings and benefits of Buddhist practice.

The depth and significance of chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo cannot be fully explained but has to be experienced through practice to grasp the meaning and benefits within your own life.*

Visit Myosenji Temple Sunday

To learn what Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo means and how to chant properly and use the Juzu (Buddhist prayer beads), visit Myosenji Temple this Sunday, August 2nd, at 2:00 pm. Our Chief Priest, Rev Murata, will lecture about the Buddhist concept of Karma and happiness.

If you have decided to become a Buddhist or are interested in learning how to become a Buddhist, after Sunday’s meeting (about 3:30 pm) Rev Murata will be performing the Acceptance of the Precept Ceremony, the ceremony where you become a Buddhist.
