the central mantra chanted within all forms of Nichiren Buddhism as well as Tendai Buddhism

Nichiren declared that to chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo was to activate its promise of universal enlightenment; he was establishing a form of practice that would open the way to enlightenment for all people--regardless of class or educational background.

One of the 3 master mantras I chanted daily during my greatest period of life challenge & Awakening 

~ as we come together in healing and awakening now en mass I dedicate this blog to the Peace and Enlightenment of our World, and to the Conscious return to Love along with collective Reinstatement of the Feminine principle on Earth, to the protection and sacredness of all beings and all living things, and to the reforesting, restoration and honoring of our Earth Mother who gives so unfathomably unconditionally and provides all things to all beings, including our bodies, with such unfathomable miracle, grace, depth and love. (She is the True Mother who gives us all Life itself). 

She provides and gives everything. ~ May She be Protected, Honored & Restored
