Daimoku is like Fire

From the book: Faith into Action 

Thoughts on selected topics by Daisaku Ikeda


Daimoku is like fire.

When you burn the firewood of earthly desires, then the fire of happiness-that is, of enlightenment- burns brightly.

Sufferings thus become the raw material for constructing happiness.

For someone who does not have faith in the Mystic Law, sufferings may be only sufferings.

But for a person with strong faith, sufferings function to enable him or her to become

happier still.

(LG, pg 91)
