President Ikeda said in ‘The Good Medicine For All Ills”:
“There is nothing but daimoku. Daimoku determines everything. Daimoku has more power than one million guidances, or one million books of philosophy. Chant abundant daimoku and pray to the Gohonzon. Ask the Gohonzon for whatever you need. Everything will come true as you wished and the path for kosen-rufu will open up in front of you. Everything depends on how much daimoku you chant…”
Nichiren Daishonin said in the Gosho “Reply to Kyo’o” :
“Misfortune will change into fortune.
Muster your faith, and pray to this Gohonzon.
Then what is there that cannot be achieved?”
As Nichiren Buddhism Practitioners, our attitude towards our practice is the most important factor when it comes to overcoming our problems and sufferings.
Sincere and determined Prayers is the cause towards our victory.
My name is Phoebe Hsin Yen Mok, and I have been involved in this Buddhism since I was 2 years old. Although not technically a fortune baby, I considered myself very blessed to have found this practice, which is the Highest and Correct Teaching of Shakyumuni Buddha, Many Treasures, and Nichiren Daishonin. (More on that in later posts).
Despite being practically born into this faith, I have many times harbored doubts and disbelief in this practice. And ultimately, have decided to venture out into a journey of Finding out the truth. I have always had a strong seeking mind, at the age of 7 I find myself writing in my Journal: “What is life?”. And that has been my driving force towards studying various subjects such as neuropsychology, past-life regression therapy, philosophy, and history. At one point I have followed various teachers who are well versed in Bazi (a chinese form of fortune telling), meditation, psychic mediums, crystal healing, and have been to Tsinghua University in Beijing China, following a Professor who claims to know the systems of the Universe. I have studied the Christian Bible and parts of the Koran, I have even been to the Church of Scientology, Mormons (Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint), Taoism, and many many others.
My thirst for knowledge and seeking of the truth has been my driving force, because I have always wanted to help people to become happy.
As the old saying goes, the Truth will set you free. At 26, I can finally say with great confidence, that this is the Correct Practice for everyone to become victorious and happy for eternity.
This blog is created with the intention to explain all forms of spiritual and intellectual questions people might have about this practice, and also to share some of the most fantastical benefits and true life stories I have had the good fortune of hearing about. I will like to take this space as a place to open up about my life journey in hope to inspire you to continue chanting this wonderful Mantra.
My greatest wish in this world, is none other for World Peace and the Happiness of All Living Beings.
Nam myoho renge kyo.
