In Nichiren Shoshu, we can make progress and deepen our faith when we attend a variety of events. We can receive encouragement from our seniors in faith and likewise encourage fellow members.
Nichiren Daishonin stated,
"Those resolved to seek the Way should all gather and listen to the contents of this letter."
He also stated, "The long journey reveals the depth of one's faith."
Ceremonies conducted at local temples express and reveal various profound aspects and concepts of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism. By participating, we are deeply absorbing their influences.
