The Nipponzan Myohoji

The Nipponzan Myohoji is an international Buddhist organization founded by the Most Venerable Nichidatsu Fujii (1885-1985).

"Tangyo Raihai" or "To Solely Practice Bowing and Worship", from the practice of the Bodhisattva Never Despise, who worshipped all that he met, knowing that they too were ultimately destined to achieve the full wisdom of the Buddhas.
The Basic practice of the monks and nuns of the Nipponzan Myohoji revolves around walking and chanting "Namu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo" while beating their drum as a call for peace in the world.

The Nipponzan Myohoji is most well known for their construction of Peace Pagodas throughout the world. They build these pagodas as offerings for world peace, and think of them as "a prayer of the spirit made manifest in material form . . . offered to the world as a symbol of global peace from the monks and nuns of Nipponzan Myohoji."
