Stories and reflections on the Buddhist approach to life
In the "Record of the Orally Transmitted Teachings," Nichiren says with reference to attaining Buddhahood, "'To attain' means 'to open'" (Gosho Zenshu, p. 753). Attaining Buddhahood means opening our lives to their fullest potential and revealing our innate Buddhahood. This is the purpose of Buddhism.
