Buddhism Day by Day: We can Take Action to our Heart’s Content Based on a Profound Sense of Mission
“Josei Toda explained the supreme benefit of faith as followers: ‘Attaining Buddhahood means achieving the state in which we are always reborn overflowing with abundant and powerful life force; we can take action to our heart’s content based on a profound sense of mission; we can achieve all our goals; we posses good fortune that one can destroy.’ The purpose of faith is to realize a state of eternal happiness. This existence is a fleeting as a dream. We faith to awaken from this dream and firmly established a state of eternal happiness in the depth of lives during this lifetime.”
