WHAT IS NICHIREN BUDDHISM
Nichiren Daishonin (1222-82) is the founder of the Buddhist teaching upon which the SGI bases its activities for peace and happiness in the world. One of the most significant attributes of Nichiren Buddhism is its easily accessible practice of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. This profound yet simple method of Buddhist practice is the perfect Buddhist teaching for the modern world. The name Nichiren means sun lotus, and Daishonin is an honorific title that means great sage.
