Buddhism Day by Day: Why Are Human Beings Born?

“Why are human beings born? This question has posed a great challenge. Josei Toda lucidly set forward his conclusion. Namely, that this world is a place for people to as the Lotus Sutra states, ‘enjoy themselves at ease.’ We were born here in order to throughly savor the joys of life. Faith in Nichiren Buddhism enables one to bring forth the great life force needed to lead such an existence.”
