GONGYO SGI PDF

Buddhism is reason. The important thing, therefore, is for each person to make wise judgments so that he or she will be able to carry out a practice of gongyo filled with joy at all times. The essential basis of our faith and practice lies in the five morning and three evening prayers that we recite during Gongyo each day. The ultimate objective of the true Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin is the attainment of enlightenment in our present form sokushin jobutsu.

The twenty-sixth high priest Nichikan Shonin explains the relationship between the primary and supplementary practices by comparing them to food and seasoning. The benefit from carrying out the primary practice is immense.

The benefit of chanting daimoku is immeasurable and boundless. Indeed, there is infinite power in chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo just one time. Accordingly, you do not necessarily have to recite the sutra as you usually do in gongyo, if, for example, you are sick. If, as a result of forcing yourself to do a complete gongyo at such times, your condition should worsen, then, rather than increasing your benefit, it may in fact have the opposite effect of destroying your joy in faith and thus generating negative value.

Buddhism is reason. The important thing, therefore, is for each person to make wise judgments so that he or she will be able to carry out a practice of gongyo filled with joy at all times. Gongyo and daimoku are the roots that, as it were, enable you to grow into a great tree. The tree of your life strengthens and grows as a cumulative result of your continuing practice of gongyo and chanting daimoku. While it may not be possible to see any changes from one day to the next, because of the daily nourishment a consistent practice affords, your life will one day become towering and vast like a great tree.

As you carry out a steady practice, you will develop a state of life of absolutely indestructible happiness. I imagine some of you may wonder how reciting sutra passages you cannot understand could bring about any benefit. Let me reassure you that definitely there is benefit from carrying out this practice. But when he sucks milk, his life is nourished and sustained.

Although one may not be versed [in various sutras]. Just as a baby is nourished and grows naturally of its own by drinking milk, if you earnestly chant the Mystic Law with faith in the Gohonzon, your life definitely will come to shine with immeasurable good fortune and benefit. At the same time, it is certainly true that if you study the meaning of the sutra based on this practice and with a seeking mind, you can deepen your confidence and strengthen your faith still further.

When we do gongyo and chant daimoku, we conduct a ceremony in which we praise Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, the law of the universe, and the Buddha. We also praise the eternal life of the universe, and the world of Buddhahood in our own lives. We savor tremendous fulfillment and joy, and gain access to a great and all-embracing wisdom. The microcosm of our lives that is encompassed by the universe in turn encompasses the entire universe. Gongyo revitalizes us from the very depths of our being.

Therefore, the important thing is to do gongyo each day filled with a feeling of rhythm and cadence—like a white horse galloping through the heavens. I hope you will do the kind of satisfying gongyo that leaves you refreshed and revitalized in both body and mind. About Us. Stories and reflections on the Buddhist approach to life. In Focus.

Gongyo and Daimoku

Understanding the meaning of the words we recite during gongyo can, of course, help strengthen our confidence and appreciation for our basic Buddhist practice. Just as birds understand the language of birds, and those who speak the same language understand one another, it could be said that by reciting gongyo, we are conversing with our own Buddha nature by speaking the language of the Buddhas. Nichiren Daishonin assures us that understanding is not a prerequisite for reaping great benefits from our Buddhist practice. But when the baby sucks milk, its life is nourished and sustained. Reciting gongyo and chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo each day is a splendid ceremony in which the microcosm of our lives harmonizes with the macrocosm of the universe.
