Quickly Transcend Your Circumstances
We create our lives through the interactions between circumstances and the beliefs we harbor.
“Why am I like this?”
“Why is life so unfair?”
“Why is life so hard?”
“What can I do about it?”
These are questions that express real pain and uncertainty about the circumstances and tendencies into which they were born, or grew into. There are also memories of abuse histories from bullying, discrimination, human trafficking all the way to war and centuries of slavery. Chronically asking the why and feeling cheated keeps a person trapped in those circumstances. Many guess at answers or give up into religion, or resignation with alcohol, gambling, or other escapes.
The freest people, with the greatest opportunities, take circumstances and tendencies they were born into as givens and move on. They don’t wonder why. They don’t wonder what they did to deserve this. They don’t seek past life answers. They just find ways to win.
The circumstances of birth form a lifelong burden. This was the view in India, and still is in many societies. Then, one man wondered, “What if it isn’t so?”
“What if people can transcend the burden of circumstances?” He set about to discover answers. The available teachers and practices didn’t provide satisfactory answers, so he found them himself.
He taught for 48 years. After 40 years he had a group of students who were trained enough to walk his walk. What he had to transmit was so revolutionary that he needed to couch the teaching in allegory, metaphors and parables. These were studied, debated, written about for centuries in India, China, Korea and Japan. Many paths were developed. The most rational path was difficult to understand and took a lot of time to practice.
Then, one man, Nichiren, in thirteenth century Japan, connected all the dots. He recognized that the way to transcend limitations was to accept them and move on with determination to clear the mind and improve life. To enable this, the element of focus, determination, respect had to be added to the whole-life summation in the title of the Lotus Sutra. (Myoho Renge Kyo) He used the Sanskrit term namas, shortened to Nam.
The result enables the cobwebs and contradictions to be cleared out and replaced with clarity and the ability to transcend limits.
What Isaac Newton did for gravity, Nichiren did for all of life.
I have listed the main points and the words in Japanese. They are capitalized for clarity.
1-Things are always changing, yet the underlying realities common to all life do not change. KYO
2- -Causes produce effects. Sometimes this is not obvious because of the time lag between cause and perceived effect. RENGE. Renge also means that we can choose to release limitations at any time like the opening of a perfect lotus growing in mud.
3-Life is both physical and non-physical. MYOHO. This is the term that includes the limited aspect of the perceivable and the unlimited aspects of the non-perceivable, and their inseparability.
4-Humans have the ability to focus their minds and achieve great results. NAM
The transcendence of circumstances is founded on the repeated speaking of the sentence Nam Myoho Renge Kyo alone, and with others. This strengthens synaptic connections based on recognized truth and weakens those based on distortions. The mind-heart-body is unified in the effort.
Nichiren’s method works for all of life, whether people believe in it, or not, as long as they try it with a focus on improvement.
It can be directed toward any goal, including expansion of consciousness. It's one thing to be smart and frustrated; it is another to decide to try an extremely effective method of arranging the world in a better way.
My own experiences: phenomenal changes as a result of reciting the formula and working with the SGI for peace, culture and happiness. Caution, translation difficulties and cultural usages tend to cause many people to regard awakening to reality as a religion because it is called Buddhism. The original documents show that Nichiren did not intend for people to rely on a power beyond their own capacities for transcending limitations.
