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…

~ Harley White

Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō means to devote our lives to and found them on (Nam[u]) the Utterness of the Dharma (Myōhō) [entirety of existence, enlightenment and unenlightenment] permeated by the underlying white lotus flower-like mechanism of the interdependence of cause, concomitancy and effect (Renge) in its whereabouts of the ten [psychological] realms of dharmas [which is every possible psychological wavelength] (Kyō).

The reason that we continually recite Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō
