Path to the Transformation of Karma

Although we all face various restrictions in our present lives due to karma from past existences, Buddhism explains that even though we are in the middle of karmic retribution, we can determine our future fortune by our own volition. Nichiren Daishonin, founder of Nichiren Shoshu, expounds the path to karmic change in the Gosho, Letter from Sado:

It is impossible to fathom one’s karma. . . It is solely so that I may expiate in this lifetime my past heavy slanders and be freed from the three evil paths in the next. (M.W., Vol. 1, pp. 37-38)*
