Book Description

Oct. 1 2001
While the notion that “happiness can found within oneself” has recently become popular, Buddhism has taught for thousands of years that every person is a Buddha, or enlightened being, and has the potential for true and lasting happiness. Through real-life examples, the authors explain how adopting this outlook has positive effects on one’s health, relationships, and career, and gives new insights into world environmental concerns, peace issues, and other major social problems.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Tina Turner found the strength to leave an abusive marriage after she began chanting "Nam-myoho-renge-kyo." This phrase, translated as "I devote myself to the mystic law of cause and effect through sound," is at the heart of Nichiren Buddhism, a practice clearly explained in this self-help primer. In 1253, the Japanese monk Nichiren declared Nam-myoho-renge-kyo "to be the one true law, the great `secret' hidden in the depths of the Lotus Sutra." Nichiren's intent was to make attainment of Buddhahood imminently available to all. This manual's authors heartily endorse the chant as completely accessible and effective at achieving desires for self and others. Noting that Nichiren Buddhism is "open equally to everyone... there are no priests or gurus," the authors promote the Nichiren path as fitting neatly within the modern world of science, especially physics, where impermanence is now a given. They also point readers toward finding community within Soka Gakkai International, a Nichiren-centered organization with 12 million adherents in 160 nations. The introduction by jazz great Herbie Hancock, a Nichiren practitioner for 29 years, makes one wonder if the rhythmic emphasis of this chant has a special call for musicians, but this path obviously has bold appeal for a broad audience of people who are willing to give chant a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing book March 16 2004
Format:Paperback
After reading "Being Peace" (by thich nhat hanh), I realized Buddhism was for me. Being raised catholic all my life, Buddhism was not only a refreshing ideological change, but a much more empowering idea for me to have/act upon. This book is a wonder, and a necessary read for anyone truly interested in buddhism.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Changed My Life Aug. 23 2003
Format:Paperback
I was a very lapsed Catholic who was searching for the next step in my spiritual evolution when I read this book. From then on I have been practicing Nichiren Buddhism and my life has been forever changed. In simple, believable language, this book leads you to a practice that helps you to find your Divinity.

This is a great book. But read for yourself! Buddha In Your Mirror makes absolute sense and prove to be practical because of the way it applies the principles of buddhism in our daily lives. Whether you're at work, with your friends, with joy, or facing obstacles, this book teaches that Buddha nature is WITHIN you to realize. Because Buddhism is practical, and chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo allows one to tap into that awakened nature. This book made me hold on to each page and read word for word. I testify to this as a profound book on Nichiren Daishonin's teachings. Isn't it time for you to discover yourself in the mirror?

5.0 out of 5 stars Especially relevant to these confusing times June 9 2003
Format:Paperback
The Buddha in Your Mirror does an outstanding job of explaining why and how each individual can make a difference in these confusing times. The authors clearly lay out the basic premises of Nichiren Buddhism in a way that should appeal to anyone who has ever wondered, "What is Buddhism and how is it relevant to my life?" As someone who has benefited from the book, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro to Nichiren Buddhism Jan. 4 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent introduction to the growing Buddist tradition of Nichiren Buddhism. It covers questions that might be asked by a beginner, and it also goes into deeper areas such the soul, relationships, death, true happiness, and so on. I also recommend a book of wisdom titled "Open Your Mind, Open Your Life" by Taro Gold, which is filled with the wisdom of Nichiren Buddhism and makes a great companion book to this one.
