How Do You Know When You're Chanting Enough Daimoku? Enough Nam-myoho-renge-kyo?

"How do you know when you're chanting enough Daimoku ? Enough Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo?

When you have no fear, 
when you are happy, 
when all obstacles look like opportunities, not problems, 
THAT'S when you are chanting enough Daimoku. 
If you are afraid, or worried...or troubled, it's time to sit down and chant more. 
Chant for peace of mind. 
Chant to be happy and serene. 
Chant to have victory in all areas of your life. 
I know sometimes it's hard. 
I know it's difficult to focus, and sometimes the people around us are interrupting us and wanting our attention. 
I know it can be hard to put that cell phone down and focus on your own life and chant with all your heart. 

But my promise, and Nichiren Daishonin's promise, and Daisaku Ikeda's promise is that you CAN become happy...happier than you ever imagined...if you devote yourself to this practice. 
There is no doubt. 

But the key is you have to do it! 

No one else can purify your life besides you. 

No one can chant for you like YOU can chant for you. 

You are the only one. 

And you would not be reading this if you were not capable of chanting your happiness into being. 

You can do it! 

You absolutely can be happy. 

You must summon the power within your life with the most incredible key of life... Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo.
