Journey of the Path of Righteousness

Learn the fundamentals of Shodai-gyo, or the practice of chanting the O-daimoku (Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo). Journey of the Path of Righteousness represents an English translation by Rev. Shogen Kumakura, head priest of New York Daiseion-ji, of the most critical section of Rev. Tairyu Gondo's manual on the liturgy of the Shodai-gyo. Rev. Gondo had learned the practice of Shodai-gyo from his master, Rev. Nichijun Yukawa who was instrumental in developing and disseminating the form of Shodai-gyo followed by most of its modern practitioners in the Nichiren Order.
