-- DAILY GOSHO --
Nichiren Buddhism teaches: "One day of life is more valuable than all the treasures of a major world system" (WND-1, 955).
Nothing is more precious than life. Nothing is more wonderful than to be able to freely live our lives.

"No matter how fine your words or meaningful your activities, it is by such very ordinary behaviour that people judge you. This is true everywhere. Such failings in the past have seriously hampered the progress of kosen-rufu.
"In Buddhism, the term 'sutra' (Jpn. kyo) means scripture or teaching. In a broader sense, it means that which expresses the lives of all living beings that is, all our words and actions. We are each 'reciting' our own sutra through our own words and actions.
"Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, in this sense, is the supreme sutra. As those who embrace this highest sutra, we must strive as much as we can to improve and refine our words and actions."
