High Priest Nichikan says: “When one embraces and has faith in this Gohonzon and chants Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, one’s life immediately becomes the object of fundamental devotion of three thousand realms in a single life-moment. It becomes the life of Nichiren Daishonin.” He also says: “When we gain awareness of the object of devotion in terms of the Person, our life manifests the life of the founder Nichiren Daishonin innate to our own lives.... When we gain awareness of the object of devotion in terms of the Law, our life manifests the object of devotion of the high sanctuary of true Buddhism.”
We truly are most fortunate to have encountered this teaching. If the goal were to become an ideal, superior or different kind of being, then becoming happy in this life would be unattainable.
