Gohomon words

32. capability for practicing

  Capabilities of people in this Mappo period are much lower than those of people during the Buddha’s lifetime and the Sho-Zobo period. In other words, people in the Mappo period don’t have any capabilities for ascetic practices such as meditating and fasting. In this Mappo period, eradicating sins in the past life resulting in attaining Buddhahood can be achieved only by chanting and spreading the Odaimoku.


*1. capability for practicing: 機根・仏道修行を行じる能力

*2. Buddha’s lifetime:  仏さまご在世の時代

*3. ascetic practice: 苦行
