What is the secret to happiness?

The secret to happiness is that there is no secret! Buddhism teaches that a universal law (dharma) underlies everything in the universe. This law is the essence of life. In other words, the fundamental rhythm of life and the universe. Nichiren Daishonin called this law or essence “Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.”

He taught that proper Buddhist practice enables everyone to bring his or her individual life into harmony with the greater life of the universe. This allows one to experience more wisdom, courage, vitality and compassion (the qualities of the essence of life). This is what is meant by the attainment of Buddhahood or an enlightened state of life.

We are encouraged to apply our Buddhist practice and to meet and overcome certain challenges in our daily life. This process allows you to appreciate and use the hidden qualities and possibilities of your life. Buddhist practice is also a means to become aware of and live your own unique life purpose.

We believe that this process of inner spiritual change, or ‘human revolution’, not only leads to the self-reliance of the individual and to constructive action, but ultimately leads humanity to focus all energies on creating a peaceful, just and sustainable world.

Buddhist practice is there for the happiness of every individual and the promotion of world peace.
