‘Nam Myoho Renge Kyo’ is a powerful Buddhist mantra. This Mantra describes the essence of Buddhism – the conviction that we have within us at each moment – the ability to overcome any problem or difficulty that we may encounter in life; a capacity to transform any suffering.
It is said that Music has power to heal, to calm mind, we have all experienced it. But when we combine music with the sound of our chants, we enhance the effect of music 1000 times. The sound, the vibration of our own voice send these healing vibrations throughout our body.
Nam Myoho Renge Kyo – Mantra Meaning
Nam comes from the Sanskrit namas, meaning to devote or dedicate oneself.
Myo can be translated as mystic or wonderful, and ho means law. This law is called mystic because it is difficult to comprehend.
Renge means lotus blossom.
Kyo literally means sutra and here indicates the Mystic Law likened to a lotus flower, the fundamental law that permeates life and the universe, the eternal truth.
Devotion to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra or Glory to the Sutra of the Lotus of the Supreme Law. This Mantra suggests us to surrender and dedicate ourselves to the Name of One Supreme Power – The Mystic Law which itself being blossomed like a Lotus makes us blossom and we feel happy, beautiful and energetic-full of life-ever young. When we dedicate ourselves to that One Whole of which we are all part, all our sufferings are removed.
