Since you are here, I assume you most probably know who Nichiren Daishonin is! Hence, I will skip the customery "who is Nichiren Daishonin" for the "About" section,
The Eternal Nichiren Dishonin (Living Daishonin)
The Daishonin in his own words states the following in context to the Gohonzon:
I, Nichiren, have inscribed my life in sumi [ink]
So, the more important question is how we perceive the Gohonzon, align ourselves to it and realize the life of the Daishonin within our very own self.
If we perceive the Gohonzon as something outside of our lives . If the teachings of the Daishonin are something which we apply in our lives to overcome some obstracle or accomplish some personal achievements, we are not practicing Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism. But, we are actually persuing some inferior teaching.
So, that brings us to a bigger question,
What is the practice of Buddhism?
Buddhism is not about chanting mantras and begging before some deity to bestow benefits upon us. Nor is it about chanting Nam Myo-Ho Renge Kyo and leaving the rest upon someone (something) else to take us out of our problems or bestowing benefits (good fortune) upon us.
Buddhism is a Philosophy, which when practiced correctly through our own life can transform our entire life and guide us towards eternal peace, prosperity and happiness. The practice has the ability to elivate our life and it's condition to that of a living Buddha.
In other words, the teachings of Nichiren Daishoinin when practiced correctly can transform us into a Buddha of the present day of the law, or in other words, a LIVING DAISHONIN.
Every individual has the potential to change the entire universe. Hence, let us all try once again to gain an understanding of the Daishonin's teachings and help change our lives, families, society and the world.
