Acrostic for Nichiren


Nichiren, all that you say is true!

I’ve have seen your light; I will follow you,

Carry on sounding that phrase profound,

Hold to my faith, till death comes around!

I Nam devote my life, my I, to Myōhō the Utterness Dharma, pervaded by Renge the lotus-like workings of mutual cause and effect concurrently, in its Kyō inherent whereabouts of all manifold manifestations… aye… I recite this fathomless title and theme

Reverently, to awake from the dream…

Ever seeking enlightenment… so I go…

Nestled in Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō…

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
