Question: Why do we need to come to Kaimyo-in so often?
One of the important purposes of our practice is to attain Buddhahood in order to establish an unshakable high life condition which will enable us to attain true happiness. It is indispensable for us to come close to the Buddha’s life in order to attain Buddhahood.
The Buddha’s life exist in the ultimate object of worship, the Dai-Gohonzon, at the Head Temple in Japan. Thus to come to Kaimyo-in is a way to approach the Buddha’s life because in Singapore, the Kaimyo-in is the nearest place to the Dai-Gohonzon as the wooden Joju Gohonzon which is established for all Singapore people is enshrined here.
