“Nichiren Daishonin writes: 'The wonderful means of truly putting an end to the physical and spiritual obstacles of all living beings is none other than Nam-myoho-renge-kyo' (WND-1, 842).
"The sound of our voices chanting and spreading Nam-myoho-renge-kyo as we practice for the happiness of ourselves and others is the ultimate victory cheer of life, brimming with the power to resolutely overcome any challenge that may confront humanity.
“The Daishonin states very clearly and strictly:
"'Everywhere other than the Capital of Tranquil Light is a realm of suffering. Once you leave the haven of inherent enlightenment, what is there to bring you joy? I pray that you will embrace the Mystic Law, which guarantees that people “will enjoy peace and security in their present existence and good circumstances in future existences” [LSOC5, 136]. This is the only glory [brilliant achievement] that you need seek in your present lifetime, and is the action that will draw you toward Buddhahood in your next existence. Single-mindedly chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo and urge others to do the same; that will remain as the only memory of your present life in this human world.' (WND-1, 64)”
