Kyo in Chinese
(pronounced "ying" in Chinese). It means "teaching." It is composed
of I (Jp. ichi), ch'uan, t'ing, and
on the right going down:
T'ing (a person standing on the ground) observes the source of things (ichi) and where they flow (ch'uan). The deeper the source (ichi) the longer the river (ch'uan). The source (ichi) of Myoho-renge-kyo is infinite and always present.
T'ing observes the surface (ichi) and the movement (ch'uan) under the surface. Flowing water (ch'uan) changes but is singular (ichi). It is the lifeblood (ching2) of all Buddhas.
Ching (fifth Buddha of the Lotus Sutra) is the Buddha of everpresent eternity. All phenomena are teachings (Ching).
"Once you realize that your own life is the Mystic Law, you will realize that so are the lives of all others. That realization is the mystic kyo..."
