Stories and reflections on the Buddhist approach to life
The ultimate essence of Nichiren Buddhism lies in living on through to the very end, pressing ever forward, courageously taking on each new challenge we encounter and never giving up. Constructing eternal glory--the state of Buddhahood--within our own lives is the purpose of our Buddhist practice in this lifetime; hence Nichiren's constant urging that we make tenacious efforts in the present.
