What is Buddhism?

Buddhism is the universal teaching of enlightenment to the true nature of life based upon the law of cause and effect (karma). Karma simply means that phenomena appear and disappear as a result of causes and conditions.

This means that what we are today is a result of what we have thought and done in the past, and what we do in the future is a result of what we think and do in the present.

Through ignorance of lkarma, people trap themselves in a vicious circle of suffering, pursuing objectives that can never bring lasting satisfaction.

Nichiren Shu provides a path that enables all people to overcome suffering, lead happy lives and help others do the same through practicing the essential teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha found in the Lotus Sutra.
