Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism began on April 28, 1253 when our founder, Nichiren Daishonin established the teaching of Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, the ultimate teachings in the Lotus Sutra. Nichiren Daishonin's teaching shows the doctrine of cause and effect. And based on it, he reveals the true entity of all phenomena. The ultimate goals of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhist Practice are the attaining enlightenment in this lifetime and the establishment of truly peaceful world in which people can enjoy happy lives together based on true Buddhism. 

Nichiren Daishonin stated:

Suffer what there is to suffer, enjoy what there is to enjoy. Regard both suffering and joy as facts of life and continue chanting

Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, no matter what happens. Then you will experience boundless joy from the Law. Strengthen your faith more than ever.
