The Dragon’s Dreams Came True

The Dragon’s Dreams Came True [1]

Chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo can revitalize our lives

and lead to a prosperous and peaceful society. [2]

One of my Good Ole Grandad’s last notes pointed at me and read, “Let her be my saving grace.” Perhaps he was concerned about his less than desirable reputation about prior events in his own life, but I don’t think anyone really understood or even cared about what he was fighting. He had another dream too – that ultimately, our enemies would face justice and we would rid the world of their absurd hypocrisy.

Our mistaken beliefs in the modern era are many. Our belief that we are a civilized society. Our belief that we should be saving other people’s lives and not murdering them. However, we seemed content to live with our own misbeliefs and failed to understand the nature of our own lives, ultimately resulting in a horrifyingly meaningless existence.

Our mission as practitioners of the Lotus Sutra in the Latter Day of the Law who chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo is to employ this great beneficial medicine of the Mystic Law to win a decisive victory in the battle against the ever-intensifying maladies caused by the three poisons.
