Welcome to Drop by Drop!
This is a blog about Nichiren Buddhism in real life – how the average person can awaken their inner Buddha nature and live a truly authentic, joyous life filled with meaning and determination. Nichiren Daishonen, the Buddha of the Latter Day of the Law, shared with us the truths needed to make Buddha’s state of grace a reality for ourselves and others.
Like you, I am a learner on the road of life, trying my best to understand where I fit in the world and to help others through my work in academia. I found Buddhism after a traumatic sexual assault left me struggling to make sense of my suffering, and the Mystic Law of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo has helped bring peace and purpose to my life. I hope to share my experiences so that others can come to experience the same joy and self-assurance that I have gained, and so that the whole of humanity can achieve enlightenment, one drop at a time.
