Living the Lotus Sutra

Nichiren Shonin taught that the essence of the Lotus Sutra is found by developing faith through chanting what’s called the daimoku (or the odaimoku), the sutra’s sacred title. Myokei Caine-Barrett, the first woman and the first Westerner to hold the position of bishop in the Nichiren Order of North America, leads us through daimoku practice.
