If that is the case then, u are attempting to explain this Ultimate truth of Spirittuality as the Universal law of Life and we call this Mystic LAw.
But, here is another question. Is there a need for us or postulating a transcendental being or god between man for his happiness. Well i believe the answer is NO. If u try seek answer from without u are just trying to lose yourself and your self-identity. The truth, however, is found nowhere but within our lives; the truth that is omnipresent in the whole universe. And Because of these i want to speak out about the truth in the Lotus sutra, in contrast to those inferior teachings, which teaches us that instead of a transcendental being, the universal self exists in the depths of our lives, within this phenomenal world and the entire universe. Your teachings in Qouran or in Bible and the pre-lotus sutra teachings this universal self or the ultimate reality is reagarded as a " personality."
THe Lotus sutra regards the reality as a " law " which underlies all phenomena. Nicheren Daishonin made clear this fact that this fundamental law is NAm Myoho Renge Kyo, truth that is found within the lives of each individual.The Buddha(life itself)and the LAW are not two different , separate things- the word LIFE encompasses both.
All people are endowed with Life, and life is immesurably precious. The Buddha and the Law- is in our own LIFE. There is no need to evoke an external power away from us. The power of the Buddha and the Power of the law both exists within our lives.
Nature is our home. We do NOT owe our existence to a machine or to a science or to some supernatural being. We are not artificially created. We are the products of nature.
