In the last post we discussed the fact that when you access your Buddha nature on a regular basis you can become happy one step at a time. So what is the chant?
It is Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. If you go to www.sgi-usa.org and enter chanting practice into Search you can hear the chant. This is the national center website for Nichiren Buddhism in the USA.
I will post an article under Newcomers in Basics to tell you what the words of the chant mean. You just chant these words over and over. I know that will seem strange at the beginning but you will find it becomes second nature before long.
When you chant you will put your life in harmony or in rhythm with the universe which means that life will flow more smoothly. It’s like going from one end of town to the other and hitting all the green lights. You will find that everything you do will work better. You won’t have to struggle so much.
You will find that you will be able to access a deep wisdom which will guide you in dealing with any problem or challenge which comes up. You will be able to pull yourself out of negative emotional states into happiness.
You don’t have to believe what I say to begin. Just be open to an adventure. For now, just try chanting for 5-10 minutes a day, everyday. You will find the more consistent you are, the better the results. You are welcome to ask questions or give me feedback as to how it is going.
