Strength

ReflectionsSome days we are strong, some days not so strong. Nichiren says this …

When water is clear, the moon is reflected. When the wind blows, the trees shake.

Our minds are like the water. Faith that is weak is like muddy water, while faith that is brave is like clear water.

Understand that the trees are like principles, and the wind that shakes them is like the recitation of the sutra.

    I am very new to Nichiren Buddhism and actually just found your great blog yesterday. I don’t understand this quote by Nichiren yet but I am following your blog and I have yet to find a local group. Thank you!

      Welcome to TSFE and to the start of your own path. With regard to the post, this may help. The writings of Nichiren are very enlightening in themselves, but don’t expect to understand everything right away. If you let me know where in the world you are, I will help you find your local group. Namaste ~ Anupadin
