The other day I started practicing shodaigyo meditation again. I hadn't done it in a long time. It's a powerful practice, and focusing on the Odaimoku - chanting it steadier and for longer - has really had a calming, yet energizing effect on me. April marked 10 years since my taking jukai, and I've used the occasion as an opportunity to develop a more consistent practice, which has been a mostly successful endeavor. I'm beginning to understand the idea of attaining Buddhahood in this very life through upholding the Lotus Sutra in a more experiential way.

As Nichiren Shonin says, when one touches the Sutra, one's hand becomes a Buddha. When one chants it, one's mouth instantaneously becomes a Buddha. This is our practice.
