Tina Turner – Nam Myoho Renge Kyo

This chant is translated as Devotion to the Law of the Lotus Flower Scripture and approximately translated as Devotion to the Mystic Law (karma) of cause and effect that exists throughout all the sounds and vibrations of the universe.

It is a potent mantra that is recited as the central practice of all forms of Nichiren Buddhism. This amazing mantra was first disclosed by the Japanese Buddhist teacher Nichiren on the 28th day of the fourth lunar month of 1253 AD at Kiyosumi-dera, close to Kominato in current-day Chiba, Japan. — Mantras Meditation
