Brief Guidances

Enfolding the World in Our Daimoku

Words of Encouragement From Ikeda Sensei

As first one person, then two persons, then a thousand, ten thousand, a hundred thousand and then all the people throughout the country come to chant the daimoku [Nam-myoho-renge-kyo], before you know it, their blessings will accrue to you. Those blessings will be like the drops of dew that gather to form the great ocean, or the specks of dust that pile up to become Mount Sumeru.

“The Blessings of the Lotus Sutra,” The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, vol. 1, p. 672

The benefit of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is boundless and immeasurable. The good fortune accumulated by the members of our Soka family who chant and teach others to do the same is truly as vast as the ocean and as great as Mount Sumeru.

The Mystic Law has the power to awaken and unite the Buddha nature of all humankind. It can revitalize the life of each and every person and even transform the destiny of the lands in which they live.

Together with our fellow members everywhere, solidly united in shared purpose, let’s enfold the entire world in our daimoku as we continue to pray for the peace and security of all.

Translated from the May 18, 2020, issue of the Seikyo Shimbun, the Soka Gakkai’s daily newspaper
