Myoho Renge Kyo is the True Buddha's, revelation and means, to cultivate and practice the invisible law of Cause and Effect, the Mystic Law of the Universe that encompasses past, present and future existences.

It is the title of Shakyamuni Buddha's (The Historical Buddha of Record) greatest work, the Lotus Sutra. Nichiren Daishonin the True Buddha added Nam which means devotion and inscribed the Dai Gohonzon, which embodies the enlightened essence of His life, as the True Object of Worship for all mankind to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo to. This gives us the concrete means to acknowledge the Law and activate it in our lives in order to achieve balance and attain enlightenment in all areas of our eternal lives.
 WHILE SITTING TALL AND STILL
PLACE YOUR HANDS IN TYPICAL PRAYER POSITION BUT WITH YOUR FINGERS SPREAD APART, PALMS TOUCHING, AND ELBOWS RESTING LOOSELY BY YOUR SIDES, SAY "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" TWO TIMES SLOWLY IN ONE BREATH; BREATHE, THEN SAY Nam Myoho Renge Kyo a THIRD TIME while bowing on the completion of "Kyo". This is called DAIMOKU SANCHO.
THIS IS YOUR SALUTATION TO THE DAI GOHONZON; LIKE YOU SAY GOOD MORNING OR GOOD EVENING. BEGIN SOLEMNLY CHANTING IN A STEADY RHYTHM:

IF ONLY FOR 1 MINUTE.
YOUR THOUGHTS SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON YOU MANIFESTING "THE BUDDHA OF INTRINSICALLY PERFECT WISDOM", IN ORDER TO RISE TO THE CHALLENGES AND DEAL WITH ALL AFFAIRS AND ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE, APOLOGIZE FOR YOUR SLANDER OF THE LAW IN THIS AND PAST EXISTENCES, EXPRESS GRATITUDE TO YOUR ANCESTORS, AND TO ALL OF THE PROTECTIVE FORCES IN THE UNIVERSE.
THIS IS EASIER SAID THEN DONE AS YOUR MIND WILL WANDER AND GET LOST IN THE DETAILS OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, "THE HIGHS AND THE LOWS OF YOUR LIFE", FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT. END YOUR CHANTING SESSION BY PERFORMING DAIMOKU SANCHO AGAIN. Be consistent. Show up; two times a day, morning and evening. Designate a place in your home where you can chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo as outlined above while facing the east.

 

FYI
