The Significance of Doing Gongyo - Chanting from the Lotus Sutra

"In general, 
every time we do gongyo and chant daimoku, 
we praise the Buddha nature in our own lives. 
We also praise the Buddha nature 
in the lives of all others, 
and we commune 
with the Buddha nature of the Universe. 
What a solemn ceremony this is! 
How fortunate we are 
to live according to the principle 
that faith expresses itself in daily life." 

The Heart of the Lotus Sutra, by Daisaku Ikeda, page 117
