Happiness is not a life without problems, but rather the courage to overcome the problems that come our way. There is no such thing as a problem – free life; difficulties are inevitable. However, the manner in which we experience and react to our problems depends on us. We can never find happiness if we don’t challenge our weakness and change from within.
What Exactly Are We Looking At :
So, it is the practice of Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism which can lead one to the path of Buddhahood and enlightenment. We are all born with Buddha nature within us. The practice helps us to elevate the Buddha nature. While one is involved in the practice, one truly works for the happiness of one’s own self and happiness of others. Nichiren truly believes that if one can find true inner happiness, one can find joy in one’s surroundings as well.
Whether life conditions are bad or good, the individual always finds a way to sustain positivity and joy. The practice of Nichiren Buddhism empowers us to overcome our weakness and face our problems with great strength. This will transform our karma and it’ll enrich the quality of our lives.
Practicing Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism does not mean conversion to another religion. It is perfectly all right to continue performing the daily prayers and continue the traditions that you’ve been following for years. Buddhism is a practice which helps you to achieve peace and harmony in humankind and inner peace of an individual. It is the utter belief in the power of the universe.
