Nichiren Buddhism in a few lines

The Beads we hold during our practice are Juzu or Ojuzu and we face the altar or the Butsudan. The Butsudan a Buddha platform that is considered the “home of the Buddha” is to protect the paper scroll named the Gohonzon or the Omandalas, “Go” Means respect and “honzon” means object of fundamental respect or devotion.

Written down the center, Namu Myoho Renge Kyo literal means Devotion to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra and was made by the Japanese Buddhist monk Nichiren Shonin also the Founder of Nichiren Buddhism who thought the mystical law is not only for the rich and higher powers but also for the mid-class and poor.

Nichiren Buddhism has nothing to do with god, it’s a practice and is a branch Mahāyāna Buddhism based on the teachings of the Lotus Sutra. The Lotus Sutra is one of the most popular and influential Mahāyāna sūtras and the basis on which the Tiantai and Nichiren schools of Buddhism were established.

Its many denominations have in common a strong focus on the chanting and recital of said sutra, which is thought to hold “extraordinary power”. We do the Morning and evening services at home named the Gongyo and chant Namu Myoho Renge Kyo also named, Daimoku.
