A member of Youtube asked me a very interesting question and I asked around a few people their thoughts.
His question was; If the Buddha, didn't speak in Japanese, they why do we chant Nam myoho renge kyo in Japanese. Wouldn't this be a deviation from the Buddha's teaching?
As much as I appreciate chanting can manifest wisdom, I didn't really feel "chant about it" was adequate, so I decided to answer the question myself.
Please let me know what you think of my response. Your feedback both positive and critical is always respected and appreciated.
