Buddhism Day by Day: Life is an Everlasting Struggle With Ourselves
“Life is an everlasting struggle with ourselves. It is a tug-o-war between moving forward and regressing, between happiness and unhappiness. Outstanding individuals didn’t become great overnight. They disciplined themselves to overcome their weaknesses, to conquer their lack caring and motivation until they became true victors in life. One reason Buddhists chant Nam-myōhō-renge-kyō each day is to develop strong will and discipline and the ability to tackle any problem seriously with the determination to overcome it.”
