Gosho for the day
- To mix other practices with this Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is a grave error. A lantern is useless when the sun rises. How can dewdrops be beneficial when the rain falls? Should on feed a newborn baby anything other than its mother's milk? No addition of other medicines is needed with a good medicine.

Subject: [SGI] RE: Gongyo: Why 2nd and 16th chapters?
Those two sections highlight the two most important teachings of the Lotus Sutra, the 2nd chapter refers to the skillful means used by the Buddha to teach the Dharma and the universality of Buddhahood, and 16 teaches the eternity of Buddhahood.

Can someone help me understand why gongyo involves recitation of the 2nd and 16th chapters of the lotus sutra? I 've heard about other chapters also being recited but any specific reason for these two chapters?
