A Way of Living as a Nembutsu Follower

Buddhism began when Sakyamuni attained enlightenment and became Buddha about 2500 years ago. In Japan, Buddhism was originally referred to as the Buddha Dharma. The Dharma here referred to the true reality of how the world is and the nature of humanity itself. It is the universal truth that trans‐ cends both space and time. The one who awakens to this truth is called a Bud‐ dha, and the teaching of the Buddha is the wisdom that teaches us how we can live, while dealing with many anxieties and sufferings we may experience in life.
