#TDE – Encouragement: Why We Chant… #Daimoku or #NamMyohoRengueKyo #NMRK

The Daily Encouragement: "The Mirror Guidance"

"Originally, every person’s life is a brilliantly shining mirror.

Differences arise depending on whether one polishes this mirror: A polished mirror is the Buddha’s life, whereas a tarnished mirror is that of a common mortal.

Chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is what polishes our lives."

#TDE – Strength. Happiness. (Real) Victory #Ikeda #SGI

“Strength is happiness. Strength is itself victory. In weakness and cowardice there is no happiness. When you wage a struggle, you might win or you might lose. But regardless of the short-term outcome, the very fact of your continuing to struggle is proof of your victory as a human being. A strong spirit, strong faith and strong prayer – developing these is victory and the world of Buddhahood.”

I wanted to share The Daily Encouragement for today, with all of you:

"Because life is long, you should not be impatient. What matters most is that you embrace the Gohonzon throughout your life.

It is vitally important to continually challenge yourself to chant even a little more daimoku and to pray before the Gohonzon for the fulfillment of your desires."

Dr. Daisaku Ikeda
