ABOUT

The scriptures of Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism- the “Gosho.” (“Go” is an honorific prefix and “sho” means writings; thus, literally, honorable writings.)- have a distinguishing feature that sets them apart from the sacred texts of other religions. It is the fact that the founder, Nichiren Daishonin, wrote those works himself.

It is important to become familiar with the Daishonin’s key treatises and letters, specifically his five major writings, and to study his teachings and doctrines in depth. That said, taking inspiration from any passage of the writings is fine. What we should then do is engrave those words in our hearts, chant about them and strive to put them into practice, as we grapple with life’s problems and battle various hardships. This is the quintessence of Buddhist study in the Soka Gakkai, study that has practical relevance to our daily lives. The Daishonin’s golden words are a source of endless encouragement and inspiration for SGI members around the globe, spurring them to transform their lives and gain solid victory.

Let’s share the wonderful teachings from the Gosho to brighten our lives and that of the Bodhisattva around us- one day at a time! And don’t forget to follow to get the day’s Gosho in your mail!
