‘Nam’ means what I devote my life to. Where I pour my energy, my determination, my focus, my intention – the goals I have and the Values I hold most dearly.

‘Myo’ is, as Nichiren himself says: “The mysterious nature of our lives from moment to moment, which the mind cannot comprehend nor words express.” Usually translated as ‘Mystic’, it also means to ‘open’ and to ‘revive’ our full spiritual potential.

‘Ho’ indicates how much of our potential we are achieving, the ‘manifest’ rather than latent aspects of our lives. ‘Ho’ also means Law.

‘Renge’ means Lotus flower, which seeds and blossoms at the same time, symbolising how every cause we make, everything we think, say and do, simultaneously creates a ‘latent’ effect which will surface when the external conditions are right. This stunning flower only grows in a muddy pond, and so it is also a metaphor for happiness blooming from the harsh realities of daily life.

‘Kyo’ signifies sound, teaching, thread, sutra, vibration and flow of life. It also evokes the eternity of life transcending birth and death.
