Within this ebook 3 answers of the practice carried out by the followers of Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin.
The Lotus Sutra doesn’t belongs to any organization or school. It is a gift to humanity. It is marvelous to invoke this Sutra, free to savor its teachings. You and the Lotus Sutra, with no intermediary. The Liturgies you find inside this ebook are for you that you have left your school or organization, but you want to follow the law and not the person, starting again from the center of your faith: the Lotus Sutra. You will find the now famous Italian ceremony, but also two ceremonies in Shindoku. That language that you routinely invoke in front of your Butsudan. Leave everything behind and start chanting.
THE PRACTICE OF GONGYO
The liturgical practice performed by followers Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism is generally carried out twice a day (morning and evening) in front of the altar, which can be that of a temple or one at home (butsudan) – this is in fact a practice that it is carried out both by laics and by monks.
Performing Gongyo means to chant the Hoben and Juryo chapters of the Lotus Sutra (which are respectively the second and sixteenth chapters). Along with this invocation, the Daimoku, Nam Myoho Renge Kyo is also chanted, considered the main and most important practice.
