Question

According to the teachings given by the monk Nichiren Daishonin, it is said tha through the invocation of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo (essence of the lotus sutra "Myoho Renge Kyo" in japanese)in front of the Gohonzon which is a mandala that reflects the state of life of the boudha one can develop a superior state of life, rising the vital energy and so, living the innate boudha each of us has.

According to nichiren daishonin, the buddhist branches take their teachings previous to the lotus sutra given by Shakyamuni, they are only a "preliminary phase" to the true practice which was transmitted to all the pratyekabuddhas by Shakyamuni in the lotus sutra in the last days of his life
en el sutra del loto en los últimos años de su vida.

Freewill and destiny?

Since I was a little boy, I have always been intrigued by the metaphysical problem of freewill and destiny and have after a very long reading process realised that Western philosophy can never help me understand the truth to this most fundamental paradox. Many people believe in absolute freewill and yet others say we have no freewill whatsoever,...

Abandoning the body and the spirit.

I wanted to know what you understand for "abandoning the body and the spirit". Is this to forget your body-spirit? It seems to me that in one of your teachings you say that in moment it is necessary to forget the body! But then, to return to this body, constantly, as we are recommended in the soto Zen, is this just a first step before the "big ...

"The 8 satori of the Great man."

I've read the comments of Master Dogen on "the 8 satori of the Great man". I can establish a correspondence with the eightfold path, except for "CHISOKU", the SATISFACTION OF WHAT IS.
