Chanting Nam myoho renge kyo can change your life. Buddhism is not about worshipping Gods, it's more about bringing changes in your own self. Hritu Sodhi

Posted on:  | 06 Nov 2016

When we change, the world changes. The key to all change is in our inner transformation—a change of our hearts and minds. This is human revolution.

Nichiren's Buddhism is getting popular day by day. It's a life changing philosophy.

What is real Buddhism?

I had joined this practice in 2010 when I was feeling disappointed from inside. My husband died in a road accident and my father passed away after hearing this shocking news. My children were young and I had to face real struggle of life. One of my good friends introduced me into this philosophy. In the beginning I tried to avoid and could not learn much. But chanting Nam myoho renge kyo started bringing positive changes in my behaviour. I was short tempered , thought dint harm anyone but my nature was harming me from inside.

Buddhist chanting helped me to clean my thoughts and my over all personality changed. It's not magical, it's mystical.

Many people take it wrongly. It's got nothing to do with the religion. You may follow any religion and continue chanting Nam myoho renge kyo.

Nichiren Diashonin was a Japanese monk who revealed this to the world in 13th century.
The SGI movement has its roots in the life-affirming philosophy of Nichiren, a Buddhist monk who lived in 13th century Japan. Nichiren’s teachings assert that each individual, regardless of race, gender, capacity or social standing, has the power to overcome life’s inevitable challenges, to develop a life of great value and creativity, and to positively influence their community, society and the world.

Nichiren’s philosophy originates in the teachings of Shakyamuni, the historical founder of Buddhism who lived in India some 2500 years ago. Nichiren discovered that the Lotus Sutra contains the heart of the Buddhist teachings and the truth to which Shakyamuni was awakened. This sutra reveals that a universal principle, called the Buddha nature, is inherent in all life. It affirms that all people are capable of attaining enlightenment.

Nichiren felt passionately that Buddhism should enable people living in the real world and facing real problems to become empowered and change their lives for the better.
Nichiren Buddhism stress the profound connection between one’s own happiness and the happiness of others. The greatest personal satisfaction and fulfillment in life is realized by working for the happiness of others.

In the world which is full of jealousy, greed and stupidity, we as Nichiren's disciples are creating peace wherever we live. It's a daily practice. We try to imbibe every guidance given by our mentor.
The Soka Gakkai International (SGI) is a lay Buddhist organization working for world peace. Our mentor and sensei is president of SGI, Daisaku Ikeda, who lives in Japan. SGI members are practicing in 192 countries presently.

Ikeda has said that "Nichiren stressed the need to spread the correct teaching and firmly establish the philosophical principles of Buddhism in the heart of each individual." Hence, "establishing the correct teaching" is the Soka Gakkai's religious mission, while "establishing the peace of the land" is its social mission."

Buddhism teaches us to respect humanity and Buddhist followers have one single mission that is to spread happiness all over.

God created the universe and made this beautiful planet for all living beings. Humans got indulged in fighting. Power and money are making us crazy. In this saha world, it's become difficult to live with honesty. Buddhism has powers to change our poison into medicine. What I really appreciate is the freedom of following any religion of our choice. Chanting is based on scientific evidence. Buddha had once said that we must not blindly follow anyone without having faith. Faith is the essential key to happiness in Buddhism. The Dharma of the Buddha is not a religion of blind faith. It is far more demanding than that.

In Buddhism, we believe in past life karma. Whatever is happening in this lifetime is created by us only. We can change our karma in this lifetime by chanting and can create good causes to build our better future. Some people suffer because of past life karma and not able to understand apparently and blame it on God for giving them problems in life.
Human life is full of difficulties and we can't run from problems. Buddhism teaches us how to take these problems happily and without getting low. We can't stop problems to come but we can easily maintain high life condition to challange these problems.

Our Practice is supported by faith and study. SGI members study the teachings of Nichiren in order to deepen their understanding of the principles of Buddhism and the processes of inner transformation. Study strengthens faith and conviction, which finds expression in practice. SGI members carry out their daily practice at home, but also meet regularly with other members in their communities. SGI members believe that each individual has the power to develop a life of great value and creativity and to positively influence their community, society and the greater web of life of which we are all a part. Nichiren Buddhism stresses that the greatest fulfillment in life is found ultimately in working for the happiness of others.

There are almost 300 practicing members in Udaipur and we are growing very fast. We belong to different cultures, religions and castes but working as many in body , one in mind. Building peace and creating happiness are our noble mission.
