Morning-Evening Binds the Day

The Buddhas : So now you see.

UN : Yes, I do.

The Buddhas : And what do you see?

UN: The effects of morning-evening Gongyo+Daimoku.

The Buddhas : And pray what are the effects?

UN: I didn’t see it earlier. Morning-evening binds the day.

The Buddhas : Hmmmm.

UN : The day is like a unit. There’s purpose, and a push. And extra energy. Motivation. Optimism. Goal-orientedness. It’s like “Let’s go!”

The Buddhas : What was it like earlier?

UN : My practice was casual. There was no Gongyo. A little bit of Nam Mayo Ho Renge Kyo here, a little bit there.

The Buddhas : Did such effects come forth then?

UN : No.

The Buddhas : So what’s your conclusion here? You already mentioned the morning-evening binding effect. Anything else as significant?

UN : Gongyo amplifies Daimoku manifold.

The Buddhas : Aha.

UN : Tongue opens up. Daimoku becomes smooth. Clear. One can do fast, loud and clear Daimoku, if one then wishes. Gongyo sets a rhythm in one’s system, and Daimoku becomes a breeze.

The Buddhas : Good. Continue like that.
