Based on Nichiren Buddhism

The Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin is based on the pursuit of happiness for oneself and for others. We create karma every moment through our thoughts, words, and deeds. This is the law of causality. Thus we have accumulated immeasurable karma from the infinite past, both good and bad, that affects our lives today. Through Buddhist practice we can sever the chains of our karma and change our destiny.
