Welcome to the first virtual home in Yugoslavia, dedicated to Nichiren Buddhists. This site is also part of Indras.Net1. You can take a look around and read some texts. I recommend particularly these titles.

Various texts - TOC

Encouragement
Shorter and longer encouragements on the path of practice. Various sources. Encourage yourself!.
Daimoku Screen Saver
There are some screen savers too. Take a look.
Literature in English
I can warmly recommend you to visit this site maintained by Will Kallander, where you can find a rich electronic literature related to practice and study of Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin. Among other things, there you can find all seven volumes of Gosho (1st edition) and entire Lotus Sutra.
A short intro and explanation of practice - shakubuku
A basic practice of Nichiren Buddhism consists of two main parts: gongyo and daimoku.
  1. Gongyo (Jap. Gongyo) means persistent effort. (You can see the detailed and piquant explanations of these Chinese characters here.) This part of the practice consists of reading parts of the Lotus Sutra in the morning and evening, in front of the mandala (Gohonzon); it can also be done without the mandala and silent prayers (directing our own benevolent thoughts to the forces of the universe which support life, to the founder and successors of this Buddhist school, to our own wishes for fulfillment and overcoming of hindrances, to deceased relatives and all those who have passed away, and, at the end, to endeavor to spread prosperity as far and as much as possible). In the practice of gongyo, daimoku is included too.
  2. Daimoku (Jap. Daimoku) means highly respected name, title. This is actually the title of the Lotus Sutra Myoho Renge Kyo (Jap.) with the added prefix namu (Skt. I dedicate my self to, or to devote one's self) so altogether it sounds Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. The term daimoku relates in the same way both to the sentence and to its repeating. Daimoku (repeating) can be performed independently from gongyo, and gongyo includes daimoku in own composition. It is said that just pronouncing daimoku once counts as if you've been reading once the entire content of the Lotus Sutra. Because of that it is placed on the first place by value in the practice (during gongyo we read parts of two chapters, of the total twenty eight chapters, of the Lotus Sutra).
  3. How does all of that work? Think about some wish, or more of them, and repeat (chant) daimoku (Nam Myoho Renge Kyo). Believe a little, for the beginning, until you are assured, be persistent and choose some life-supporting wishes, since Nichiren Buddhism is respecting life as the ultimate value and supports it. After some time you will be closer and closer to your destination... And this is just the beginning. What really happens during your daimoku you can learn here. How daimoku sounds and some other 'tips and tricks' you can see here.

What is Indras.Net?
Suspended above the palace of Indra, the Buddhist god who symbolizes the natural forces that protect and nurture life, is an enormous net. A brilliant jewel is attached to each of the knots of the net. Each jewel contains and reflects the image of all the other jewels in the net, which sparkles in the magnificence of its totality.

"All that we are is the result of what we have thought."
(Buddha)
Suffer what there is to suffer, enjoy what there is to enjoy. Regard both suffering and joy as facts of life and continue chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, no matter what happens. Then you will experience boundless joy from the Law. Strengthen your faith more than ever. With my deep respect, Nichiren.
You must never seek any of Shakyamuni's teachings or the Buddhas and bodhisattvas of the universe outside yourself. Your mastery of the Buddhist teachings will not relieve you of mortal sufferings in the least unless you perceive the nature of your own life. If you seek enlightenment outside yourself, any discipline or good deed will be meaningless. (N. Daishonin)
Never seek this Gohonzon outside yourself. The Gohonzon exists only within the mortal flesh of us ordinary people who embrace the Lotus Sutra and chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. The body is the palace of the ninth consciousness, the unchanging reality which reigns over all life's functions. (N. Daishonin)
A passage from the Lotus Sutra reads, 'During the Latter Day of the Law, if one wishes to teach this sutra, he should employ the mild way of propagation.' Another reads, 'In the Latter Day when the Law is about to perish, a person who embraces, reads and recites this sutra must abandon feelings of envy and deceit.' (Daishonin)
Even though one neither reads nor studies the sutra, chanting the title alone is the source of tremendous good fortune. (Dashonin)
