What we’ll do
Based on the Buddhist belief that all people equally possess Buddhahood, we believe that we can awaken our inherent Buddha nature by chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, the mystic law. By chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, we awaken to the reality that within our life is unlimited reserves of courage, wisdom and compassion—that we are in fact Buddhas. Based on this conviction, we can transform any suffering, lead those around us to happiness, and create peace in our communities and the world. Come learn about this life transforming philosophy!
