He [Nichiren Daishonin] is urging us to decide and believe that we ourselves are entities of Myoho-renge-kyo. The Mystic Law is the great beneficial medicine for relieving the sufferings of all people. It is also the wonderful treasure trove for realizing human happiness. We need to live out our lives based on and dedicated to the Mystic Law. We need to fill and solidify our lives with this great Law. The Mystic Law is eternal. It is the wellspring of all things. When we perceive that our life is one with the Mystic Law, we experience the eternity of life and boundless energy wells forth. Nothing can destroy this. No matter what happens, we enjoy a state of complete freedom. That is the life-state of Buddhahood. Therein lies the profound significance of chanting Myoho-renge-kyo. When we believe in and become one with the Mystic Law, our impermanent self becomes eternal. Infinite power wells from our finite existence. As a result, we can break through any deadlock. That is the purpose of faith.
