The Mystical Significance of Gongyo

"Gongyo and daimoku are a ceremony 
in which our lives 
commune with the universe. 
During gongyo, 
through our faith in the Gohonzon* 
we vigorously infuse the microcosm 
of our individual existence 
with the life force of the macrocosm, 
of the entire universe. 
If we do this regularly each morning and evening, 
our life force is strengthened." 

Daisaku Ikeda, Faith in Action, p. 120 

* Note from Jamie:
The Gohonzon represents our life itself. 
When we chant facing the Gohonzon we connect with the power within our lives.
