Senseis Joshin Byrnes and Genzan Quennell relay the stories of Devadatta and the Dragon Girl, two stories which both make the inclusive point that everyone will become a Buddha someday. Devadatta is the story of a disciple who attains Buddhahood even after attempting to assassinate the Buddha. The Dragon Girl is a story of an eight-year-old dragon-girl who attains complete enlightenment as a.

      In this book, Atkins introduces us to the Buddhist master Nichiren [] and the healing teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha as laid out in the Lotus Sutra.

The Buddha Infinite Life is also known as the Buddha Amida. This sutra is one of the three basic scriptures of the Pure Land (Nembutsu) school of Buddhism, which reveres Amida Buddha and aspires for rebirth in Amida’s Pure Land of Perfect Bliss.

    First appearing in the Kāraṇḍavyūhasūtra (4th-5th cent. CE), where the Buddha calls it “the most beneficial mantra,” the whole phrase literally transaltes as “OM the Jewel in the Lotus HUM.” referring to the totality of sound, existence, and consc. These three sutras are the most important texts for the Chan (Chinese) and Zen (Japanese) Buddhist traditions, though they are very different in character and provenance. The Diamond Sutra (Vajracheddikā Prajña Pārāmitā Sutra in Sanskrit) has the distinction of being 'the earliest complete survival of a dated (11 May ) printed book’.

Buddhism’s history in America began inwhen Unitarian Elizabeth Palmer Peabody translated a section of the Lotus Sutra into English for the Transcendentalist journal The Dial. Since then there have been a number of complete translations of the Lotus Sutra, but translation is always an ongoing process and new versions often help reveal things obscured by earlier ones.

The samadhi of the Lotus Sutra was taught to Zhiyi by Huisi on Mount Dasu. At that time Zhiyi reached a certain state. But Huisi judged what Zhiyi realized was the preliminary step. Huisi's preliminary step was to preach in accordance with the various living beings based on the Meaning of the Course of Ease and Bliss in the Lotus Sutra.

“Meditation” is a vague term. Even in English it has two opposing meanings: thinking and not-thinking. But unsurprisingly, since the word meditation is derived from Latin, the term can be even more confusing when it comes to Buddhist meditation and its recent offshoot, secular mindfulness.

In the Pali canon, there’s no single word for meditation. It is not important to understand the literal meaning of every word as we recite them.

For a full explanation of the meaning of the passages we recite in gongyo, it is worth reading SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's lectures in the book The Heart of the Lotus Sutra.2 Here, though, are some of the key passages from the ceremony.

The meaning is irrelevant here; significance becomes the relevance. Not that it has no meaning, but basically it has only significance.
