Saying the words “Nam-myoho-renge-kyo” is just one part of practicing Nichiren Buddhism, which I believe works. Many people have told me they view Buddhism as merely a philosophy and not a religion. … However, practicing Buddhism and chanting NMRK is actually taking the action and making a cause to be happy. The chant translates to somewhere between “I devote myself to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra”, or the more traditional “…the Wonderful Dharma of the Lotus Flower Teaching”.
Chanting “nam myoho renge kyo” leads to happiness. It helps you maintain a subtle but strong undercurrent of joy and tranquillity in your daily life. It strengthens your emotional and spiritual core so that nothing can knock you down.
Chanting has led to a more mindful and peaceful attitude towards life. Through the energetic mechanisms we will explore in future posts, it has also led to perfect jobs / homes / windfalls landing in my lap at the perfect moment. It connects you, with your inner Self, and with something… bigger.
Do you want a bigger dose of delight in your life? Let me assure you that giving into the weirdness and doing this crazy-person chant was the best thing I ever did for myself, and I am nothing but #grateful that this practice found its way into my life. No matter how awful or awesome your life is right now, you can raise yourself up even higher and achieve, well, anything.
