When we chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo to the Gohonzon, the sound of the Mystic Law reaches the realm of Buddhahood in the universe as well as the Buddha nature within us, unlocking its innate compassion, wisdom and courage. It fills us with the energy to face every difficulty, strengthens our life force and makes us unbeatable. It enables us to exercise our wisdom and intellect, sets us on a sure path leading to good fortune and benefit and allows us to advance toward victory. The true purpose of our Buddhist practice is to elevate our life state.
