Nichiren Buddhism

Please note that I am not affiliated with any branch of Nichiren Buddhism or any religious organisation – I, like many others, practice this chant independently. Moreover, in my version of the practice I have eliminated all of the extraneous ritual and accessories which you would find in most other Nichiren Buddhist traditions. Chanting nam myoho renge kyo really is all you need, and it is that alone which I choose to explore and discuss in these pages.

However, a more traditional approach can appeal to many people, and these communities can also be wonderfully resourceful and rewarding. With that in mind, if you would like to explore a more collective or traditional version of this practice, I have compiled a list of the main organisations and resources you might want to check out:

Soka Gakkai International (SGI)

Nichiren Shoshu

Nichiren Shu

Kempon Hokke

Nichiren Buddhist Association of America
