When You Chant Consistently The Mystic Law is "Righting" Your Life

Changes Might Not Happen Right Away, 
but they WILL COME if We Persevere

The important thing is to keep chanting until the changes DO happen.

As Daisaku Ikeda states:

"When we practice gongyo and chant daimoku 
in front of the Gohonzon, 
the good and evil capacities of our lives 
begin to function 
as exalted forms of fundamental existence. 
Lives that are full of the pain of Hell, 
lives that are in the state of Hunger, 
lives warped by the state of Anger ~ 
such lives, too, 
begin to move in the direction 
of creating personal happiness and value. 
Lives being pulled toward misfortune and unhappiness 
are redirected and pulled in the opposite direction, 
toward good, 
when they make the Mystic Law their basis."

Daisaku Ikeda, Faith in Action page 119.


  1. I love this quote. So reassuring. Just keep chanting, just keep chanting...

    It's the same idea in the Gosho, where the Daishonin describes this process like a developing and hatching egg.

    Thank you Jamie :)
