Faith

Practice

Study

Pray for self and others

FOCUS

INTENTION

EXPECTATION

 

 

Be diligent in developing your faith

 

Be diligent in developing your faith until the last moment of your life, otherwise you will have regrets. For example, the journey from kamakora to kyoto takes 12 days. If you travel for eleven but stop on the twelfth how can you admire the moon over the capital? --- Letter to Niike 1280

  • Ge is abdomen

  • Kyo Extremities

Reply to Gijobo

กค        The Jigage section of the chapter states, '...single-mindedly desiring to see the Buddha, not hesitating even if it costs them their lives---My interpretation of the passage is that 'single' stands for myo (mystic), 'mind' for ho (law), 'desiring' for ren (lotus), 'see' for ge (flower), and 'Buddha' for kyo (sutra). In propagating these five characters of Myoho-renge-kyo, one should 'not hesitate even if it costs them their lives.'

กค         'Single-mindedly desiring to see the Buddha' also means to see the Buddha in one's own mind, to concentrate one's mind on seeing the Buddha, and that to see one's own mind is to see the Buddha. I have attained the fruit of Buddhahood, the eternally inherent three bodies by living this sentence.

กค         The Buddha admonishes that one should by all means become the master of one's mind rather than let one's mind master oneself This is why I have emphatically urged you not to hesitate to give up your body and your life for the sake of the Lotus Sutra. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
