The Mystic Truth is

 

 

Wisdom

Perfection

The Inseparable relationship between life and all phenomena

The Ultimate Reality or True Entity of all Life

On Attaining Buddhahood - Issho Jobutsu Sho -

If you wish to free yourself from the sufferings of birth and death you have endured through eternity and attain supreme enlightenment in this lifetime, you must awaken to the mystic truth which has always been within your life. This truth is Myoho-renge-kyo. Chanting Myoho-renge-kyo will therefore enable you to grasp the mystic truth within you. Myoho-renge-kyo is the king of sutras, flawless in both letter and principle. Its words are the reality of life, and the reality of life is the Mystic Law (Myoho). It is called the Mystic Law because it explains the mutually inclusive relationship of life and all phenomena. That is why this sutra is the wisdom of all Buddhas.

 

Nan-yueh says in his commentary: "All living beings have within themselves the storehouse of the Dharma body, and therefore they are in no way different from the Buddha." That is why the Lotus Sutra says: "The pure and ordinary eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind that one received at birth from one's father and mother are also like this.

(The Entity of The Mystic Law)

 

WISDOM

The Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra

กค         Within this single character kyo are contained all the sutras in the entire universe. It is like the wish-granting jewel that contains within it all manner of treasures, or the vastness of space that encompasses all phenomena. And because this single character kyo of Myoho-renge-kyo is the supreme achievement of the Buddha's lifetime of teaching, the other four characters, Myo-ho-ren-ge, likewise surpass all the other eighty thousand doctrines that the Buddha taught

 

PERFECTION

The Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra

The character myo is rendered in Sanskrit by the word sad, and in Chinese is pronounced miao. Myo means "fully endowed, " which in turn has the meaning of "perfection." Each word and each character of the Lotus Sutra contains within it all the 69, 384 characters that compose the sutra. To illustrate, one drop of the great ocean contains within it the waters of all the various rivers that flow into the ocean, and the wish-granting jewel, though no bigger than a mustard seed, is capable of showering down all the treasures that one could wish for.

A new scientific worldview from a living-systems perspective

 

Our culture is deeply engaged in sadomasochism - understood here as the haves lording over the have-nots. How so? Let's take contemporary capitalism and the world distribution of wealth and power as an example: In the 1960s, the overall income of the richest 20 percent of the world's population was thirty times that of the poorest 20 percent. Today, it is 224 times larger! In the 1960s, the richest 20 percent held 70 percent of the world's revenues; in 1999 it was 85 percent. Today the income of the richest 225 people in the world is equal to the income of 3 billion poor people. The income of the three richest people in the world is equal to the collective national incomes of the poorest forty-nine countries! It would take no more than 5 per cent of the overall annual sales of arms in the world to feed all the starving children, to protect them from dying of preventable diseases, and to make basic education accessible to all

 

By Matthew Fox a postmodern theologian, has been an ordained priest since 1967. He holds Masters degrees in philosophy and theology from Aquinas Institute and a Doctorate in spirituality, summa cum laude, from the Institut Catholique de Paris.

 

This is indeed about about the nature of the old Paradigm which by its very nature of denial and entrenchmenmt in rigid more inflexible ways is destroying itself from within. The vast inequiities on the planet, the archaic fossilised economic system which depends on infinite resources, the monotheistic programming for Deux ex Machina the addiction to survival of the fittest and sensationalism wrapped around an addiction to death are hopefully coming to some kind of epiphany as people recognise the sheer uselessness of this anomic way of existence!!

 

The loss of Resources

We are surrounded by delusion and suffering in this World of diminishing resources where billions exist in poverty and very poor health. We are surrounded by a crisis of melting Ice Caps, Terrorism and the tremendous loss of Biodiversity. Nations compete with each other for economic power and consumerism and greed is rampant! There is enormous inequity and very few think of the suffering peoples of the World or the loss of the living Environment.

 

The biggest innovation we need is a completely new scientific worldview from a living-systems perspective. A biology-based model of a living universe shows self-organized and self-regulated holarchies (self-contained systems which are interdependently embedded in each other, such as a cell, an organism, a family, or an ecosystem). Gravity and radiation, entropy and syntropy, are in cyclic balance, just as are anabolism and catabolism - the buildup and breakdown/recycling of living tissue. It's a beautiful, elegant universe. Yet it's difficult to change a scientific worldview - the old guard can't afford to understand and acknowledge the well-researched information that will turn their whole worldview over. It's like expecting a caterpillar to be enthusiastic about dissolving so that a butterfly can form!

The Ultimate Reality or True Entity of all Life

 

FREEING OURSELVES FROM THE MATRIX OF DELUSION

How sad, how lamentable it is! From the beginningless past, we have been drunk on the wine of ignorance, reborn again and again in the six paths of existence and the four forms of birth. We go astray as though we had the eyes of sheep; we are as ignorant as though we had the eyes of wolves. We do not know our past relationship with the mother who gave us birth, and we are unaware when we ourselves will succumb to death.

And yet we have obtained birth in the human world, something difficult to achieve, and have encountered the sacred teachings of the Buddha, which are rarely to be met. We are like the one-eyed turtle finding a floating log with a hole in it that fits him exactly. How regrettable it would be, then, if we did not take this opportunity to sever the bonds of birth and death, making no attempt to free ourselves from the cage of the threefold world

 

Conversation between a Sage and an Unenlightened Man -Nichiren Daishonin

 

 

The changing nature of all phenomena , the interdependence of all things, the elegance and perfection inherent in the Universe is eminently described in The Buddhism of the mystic Law by the Buddha Nichiren Dai Shonin ( Nichi is SUN, Ren is Lotus Dai is Great and Shonin is Master ) .

 

A Better World

 

 

A Better World would recognize the living nature of the Universe, the fact that everything is interconnected and maintains itself at the expense of everything else, A better World would respect the sanctity and dignity of all life. It would seek for universal human values and principles and enhance cooperation amongst all Nations to solve Humanities` problems

 

What we have here is a short cut to the unrivalled jewel of expression of the universe itself as a self referential system in which the Human being participates in a journey of exploration --the last frontier- into the depths of his or her heart conjoined to the heart of the Universe. This is an expression of the individual as an entity or particle at the same time being a wave form , (Like the paradox of light itself)

 

The fusion with the Ikons of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo like the Ikons on a Computer Screen entrains the brain and Being to a new mode of thinking and widom and compassion. The individual breaks through the egg shell of ignorance into the ocean of enlightenmnet of the living universe. The experience is most vivid when the individual is locked on the Sar Gate Way of The Dai Gohonzon in Taisekiji at the foot of Mount Fuji in Japan. The Dai gohonzon is guarded by the Priesthood of the Hokeko whoh have been chanting for World Peace every morning between 2am and 4 am for the past 750 years

 

 

However, life itself is the most precious of all treasures. Even the treasures of the entire universe cannot equal the value of a single human life. Life is like a lamp, and food like oil. When the oil is gone, the flame will die out, and without food, life will cease."

The Gift of Rice - 1270s Nichiren Daishonin
