How to start?

There are three essential points in the practice of Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism – ‘faith’, ‘practice’ and ‘study’.

  • The first point of ‘faith’ involves placing absolute trust in the Gohonzon.
  • The second point of ‘practice’ refers to doing morning and evening Gongyo (recitation of Lotus Sutra) everyday to the Gohonzon sincerely and chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo in order to purify one’s life.
  • The third point of ‘study’ means to study the teachings of Nichiren Daishonin correctly based on the heritage of the Law by the successive High Priests.

The fulfillment of the above three noble points of practice, without doubt, assures the realisation of an individual’s wishes as well as promises of his or her family’s happiness and prosperity in the two existences of present and future.
By attending ceremonies and meetings in Kaimyo-in, you can practise together with priests and many other believers, and you can learn more about True Buddhism from the lectures and guidance of the Chief Priest.

 

如何开始修行?

修行日莲大圣人佛法是基于「」三大要点。

  • 首先的「」,是指绝对信赖御本尊。
  • 其次的「」,是指能净化生命的修行,即是不懈怠地面对御本尊做早晚勤行(诵读法华经),和虔诚地唱诵「南无妙法莲华经」。
  • 第三的「」,是指以历代御法主上人的血脉相传为基本,正确地学习日莲大圣人的佛法。

若能完善地实践以上的三大要点,无疑的,个人的心愿定可实现,当然也包括一家今世及来世的幸福与兴旺。
常到开妙院,你能跟僧侣与信徒们共同参加法会活动等,从御主管的御讲与指导中,你自然会对正法有更深入的理解。
