The Nichiren Shu is a Buddhist Order founded by the religious prophet and reformer, Nichiren Shonin (1222-1282). He espoused the doctrine that the Lotus Sutra represents the embodiment of the genuine teachings of Sakyamuni Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, the Savior of this world.
Our belief in this doctrine is affirmed by our chanting of the Odaimoku (Sacred Title) : “Namu Myoho Renge Kyo,” that is “Adoration to the Scripture of the Lotus of the Perfect Truth.”
We believe that Nichiren Shonin was the messenger of the Buddha who has guided us in cultivating our Buddha nature, a quality inherent in all beings, and establishing a way of life
consonant with the eternal truths preached by the Buddha.
We vow to the Buddha and Nichiren Shonin that we will strive to engender peace within ourselves and throughout the world by disseminating the teaching expounded in the Lotus Sutra
One of the highest aims of Nichiren Shu Buddhism is to manifest the pure world of the Buddha’s Pureland in actuality here and now. This is a very dynamic Buddhism, not confined to some future dream of happiness and freedom. We must dance and sing with every moment of life, using each opportunity to grow, learn, serve, and witness the Eternal Buddha — The Dharma moving through our lives.
The Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Law is the Most Profound treatise found among Buddhist and Non-Buddhist scriptures. It leads to the greatest and highest insight on both a social and personal level. Explore with us the Profound Insight of St. Nichiren and Nichiren Shu.
..may the sound of our chanting be offered to the Three Treasures – that all beings may be equally blessed – and us together attain the peace of Nirvana.– unzo
