Nichiren Buddhism

"Buddhism is concerned with victory or defeat." The purpose of Nichiren Buddhism is to enable us to win in life, to triumph over all kinds of hardships, tribulations and karma. That is the purpose of Buddhism, and the purpose of our faith is to attain happiness. Buddhism teaches the Law that pervades the three existences of past, present and future. No one can escape this Law; it is an uncompromising force governing victory and defeat in life. Let's continue to practice Nichiren Buddhism all our lives and win without fail! All your efforts for kosen-rufu will produce good fortune and benefit that will adorn your lives. Everything you do for kosen-rufu profits you. There is not slightest doubt that all of you will become victors in life." World Tribune - December 10, 2004
