As someone who’s only been practicing this Buddhism for two months, I would also agree with you. I have been into Buddhism for 18 years — exploring various flavors of it. But it wasn’t until I discovered Nichiren Buddhism — and started chanting — that I understood this distinction and how to bring it out. It’s been one of the most transformative things to happen in my life.

Thanks for reaching out!
