--WORDS OF THE WEEK-- The Daishonin stated, "The ray of light from the daimoku reaches all the way to the hell of incessant suffering and makes it possible for [the deceased] to attain Buddhahood then and there."(*) Chanting daimoku based on the spirit of "practice for oneself and others" serves as the ultimate memorial for the deceased. Together, let's embark on a journey to manifest in our lives the four noble virtues of "eternity, joy, true self and purity."
