Forward! Always forward! This is a basic spirit of Buddhism. Nichiren's teaching is the Buddhism of true cause. We live with our gaze fixed on the future, not hung up on the past. To advance eternally--this is the essence of life and the essence of what it means to be a practitioner of Nichiren Buddhism.
