ON UNDERSTANDING
THE LOTUS SUTRA
The Lotus Sutra is presented as a pageant or a Broadway musical, explaining
how the Buddha became enlightened, how he came to be. Each part of the Lotus
Sutra explains this. So the phrase
Niji seson ju sanmai is translated to mean "at
that moment the Buddha was enlightened."  It's hard to recite the Lotus Sutra
everyday without understanding what is written. To understand a little would be
helpful.
