A Bit on the Practice of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism

Nichiren Shoshu is the name of the denomination which follows the orthodox teachings of Buddhism as taught by Nichiren Daishonin, who made his advent in Japan in 1222. The Head Temple, Taisekiji, is at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Japan. Nichiren Shoshu has temples and centers worldwide and actively propagates the teachings of Nichiren Daishonin. The practice of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism brings about powerful benefits and positive changes to the lives of those who practice it.

The ultimate goals are the attainment of enlightenment by the individual and, through widely spreading Buddhism, the establishment of a purified and peaceful world where all people can enjoy happy lives together.

The daily practice consists of chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo and reciting a chapter and a half of the Lotus Sutra, called Gongyo, to the True Object of Worship called the Gohonzon. There are six temples in the United States and many local area meeting places. All are invited to learn about Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism and experience its beneficial power.
