How effective it is to chant Lotus sutra and Na Mu Myo Ho Renge Kyo twice a day instead of zazen. What is your view on Nichiren shu and Lotus Sutra.

There is no meaning in comparing zazen and reading the lotus sutra. They both have their good points. For deepening one´s samadhi it would be necessary to learn the sutra by heart, because you cannot keep reading the lotus sutra while working. Zazen can be practiced 24 hourse a day, when you eat, work and sleep - all is zazen.
