--SGI President on Gongyo and Daimoku-- I imagine some of you may wonder how reciting sutra passages you cannot understand could bring about any benefit. Let me reassure you that definitely there is benefit from carrying out this practice. Gongyo revitalizes us from the very depths of our being. Therefore, the important thing is to do gongyo each day filled with a feeling of rhythm and cadence--like a white horse galloping through the heavens.
Every year SGI President Daisaku Ikeda publishes a peace proposal exploring the interrelation between core Buddhist concepts and the diverse challenges global society faces in the effort to realize peace and human security. In addition, he has also made proposals touching on issues such as educational reform, the environment, the United Nations and nuclear abolition. #peace #buddhism
