Gongyo Lyrics With Silent Prayers

Published on: 8 May , 2019 | Ekta

Meaning Of Gongyo

Gongyo is one of the most basic practices in Nicherin Daishonin's Buddhism which consists of reciting parts of the Lotus Sutra and chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo (daimoku) to the Gohonzon. The Gohonzon refers to the hanging calligraphic paper mandala inscribed by Nichiren to which devotional chanting is directed. It is believed that doing this daily serves to praise the power and greatness of the Gohonzon and to unite our life with the Gohonzon. Chanting both the Daimoku and the Lotus Sutra are called 'primary practice' and 'supplementary practices' respectively and these practices hold their own importance in the process of uniting with the Gohonzon. The Gongyo Lyrics and Silent Prayers are known to be immeasurable and boundless.

The Importance Of Chanting Gongyo - Benefits Of Chanting Gongyo

There is immeasurable and boundless benefit of chanting Gongyo & Daimoku. Chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo just once gives infinite power & positiveness. You will feel refreshed and revitalized in both body and mind - the Buddha nature of all living beings will be summoned and gather around you.

The essential basis of Buddhism and practice lies in the feeling of rhythm and cadence of chanting five morning and three evening prayers every day. The ultimate objective of the true Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin is the attainment of enlightenment in our present form (sokushin jobutsu) -

Gongyo and daimoku are the roots that, that enable you to grow into a great, strong tree. As you practice regularly, you will develop a state of life of absolutely indestructible serene happiness, gaining access to a great and all-embracing wisdom

I pray for peace throughout the world and the happiness of all living beings and humanity as a whole.

Sound the bell and chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo three times to conclude.

When we do gongyo and chant daimoku, we conduct a ceremony in which we praise Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, the law of the universe & the Buddhahood in our own lives.

We don't have to suffer painful austerities or be reborn for many lifetimes to bring forth our own Buddhahood and attain absolute unshakable happiness. We can attain it right here and right now.
