March Is the Time to Roar Like A Lion

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo is like the roar of the lion

Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo is like the roar of the lion.What sickness can therefore be an obstacle? It is written that those who embrace the Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra will be protected by Kishimojin and her ten daughters. They will enjoy the happiness of Aizen and the good fortune of Bishamon. Wherever your daughter may frolic or play, no harm will come to her; she will be free from fear like the lion king. (written by Nichiren Daishonin in 13th century Japan)

Sunday is the first day of March.  It’s the time you’ll hear the English proverb/weather lore “March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb.”

Make plans to visit Myosenji Temple in March to learn why Nichiren Daishonin, the founder of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism, wrote “Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo is like the roar of the lion.”
