Karma 101: Make Good Causes

The wonderful means of putting an end to the physical and spiritual obstacles of all living beings is none other than Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo.

written by Nichiren Daishonin in 13th century Japan

Buddhist Temple
Societal treasures such as title, status, and material assets cannot be brought with you to future life-times; however, the fortune and good causes that you obtain from practicing Buddhism are treasures that never will be lost throughout the three existences of past, present and future. These supreme treasures allow practitioners to reach the life condition of Buddhahood and accumulate immeasurable fortune from the present to future lifetimes. The benefits of practicing true Buddhism also include lessening immeasurable, heavy, karmic retribution amassed from previous life-times from the remotest past.
