Mystic Law ［妙法］ (Chin miao-fa; myōhō): Also, wonderful Law. The ultimate Law, principle, or truth of life and the universe in Nichiren’s teachings; the Law of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. This term derives from Kumārajīva’s Chinese translation of the Sanskrit word saddharma, from the title of the Saddharma-pundarīka-sūtra, or the Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Law. It has been translated into English also as Wonderful Dharma, Fine Dharma, etc. (In this dictionary, in accord with published translations, it is rendered as Wonderful Law when referring to the title of the Lotus Sutra, and as Mystic Law when referring to the underlying principle it represents in Nichiren’s teaching.) See also Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
