The Path to Happiness Though Nichiren Buddhism Is Revealed in New Book by Suraj Jagtiani
Like many other soul searchers and truth seekers, Suraj Jagtiani has been searching for the ultimate goal of happiness and contentment. Though his loving wife, he began to practice Nichiren Buddhism, and his life started to change for the better. In his new book, "The Incredible World of Nichiren Buddhism" (published by AuthorHouse), the author provides an insight into the origins and teachings of Nichiren Buddhism, illustrating how readers can benefit from this practice.
"Having seen proof of faith in Nichiren Buddhism, I made a vow to write a concise, yet vastly informative book on this amazing philosophy," says Jagtiani.
Nichiren Buddhism is a philosophy expounded by Nichiren Daishonin, stating that everyone can attain enlightenment. His teachings were based on the Lotus Sutra, which contained the true essence of the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha. Nichiren Daishonin believed all people could reveal their inherent Buddhism through faith, practice and study.
An excerpt from "The Incredible World of Nichiren Buddhism":
"It is in these trying times of depression and unhappiness that one tends to show a marked increase in one's spiritual values. Initially this is more so as an expedient, to lead one to happiness.
"This is where the role that religious philosophy plays in our lives is of crucial importance. Rather than act as a crutch - providing support in our time of need - a philosophy has to be more meaningful, thus being more than just a transient phase in one's life."
The author hopes readers will obtain an "unshaken faith and belief that happiness is attainable through the practice of Nichiren Buddhism."
