I was introduced to nichiren buddhism in 1992. The most important practice of nichiren Buddhism (in my opinion) is the chanting of nam-myoho-renge-kyo. everything else (again, in my opinion) is not important. I knew that the chanting of nam-myoho-renge-kyo is the act to submitting to myoho-renge-kyo, but I did not know what myoho-renge-kyo was. In computer science, a variable is an identifier that labels a value for future reference. The value of a variable can be changed through assignment. Through chanting nam-myoho-renge-kyo, I found myself able to assign anything to myoho-renge-kyo (as if myoho-renge-kyo, as an analogy, were a variable). About two months ago, I was reading exodus chapter 20. As I was reading verse 8 (remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.), it dawn on me to assign the Sabbath day to myoho-renge-kyo, and to rest that day. Since then, the commandment makes perfect sense to me. That event (from sunset Friday evening to sunset Saturday evening) is my position in space-time. It is the source of positive entropy change whish , according to the second law of thermodynamics, is necessary to observe an apparent decrease in the first six days of the week.
