After the publication of Modern Buddhist Healing in 2002, Charles Atkins received letters from many readers regarding their experience with the technique he describes as “mantra-powered visualization,” which combines the chanting of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with visualization.

This book explains why meditation, prayer, chanting, and visualization are effective and how they can be used to restore wellness on all levels of our lives. Like the mantra OM, the Lord's Prayer, or the 23rd Psalm, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo has gathered immense vibrational power and positive energy. Over the centuries it has been evoked by people focusing on the betterment of themselves and humanity. Atkins addresses questions many readers have presented him, includes some of their stories of success, and more visualizations to help readers target specific illnesses. Most poignant and comforting is Atkins' explanation of the circle of birth, death, and rebirth– the wheel of samsara– and the spiritual opportunities inherent at each stage of the journey.

Our very lives contain the secrets to wellness, and we can learn to evoke our healing power with Atkins' guidance. Atkins' mission is to help alleviate the suffering of all people, so the techniques he descrives are interdisciplinary. His wisdom and techniques have been utilized by people from all walks of life.

In 1987 Charles Atkins was struck with Hodgkin's disease and underwent the ravages of chemotherapy. Throughout his illness he used his Buddhist training and the power of the mantra nam-myoho-renge-kyo to carry him through the cancer treatments and allay his fears of death and doubts for recovery. During his stays in the hospital, he took every possible opportunity to comfort other cancer patients. His survival inspired him to share the healing techniques he has learned with others.

In this book, Atkins introduces us to the Buddhist master Nichiren (1222-1281) and the healing teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha as laid out in the Lotus Sutra. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is an old mantra that has accumulated a great deal of power from centuries of countless individuals focusing their highest intents while chanting it. He explains how nam-myoho-renge-kyo can be used to “undo” karma that has damaged our health. Methods for chanting while visualizing abound in this book. His example, along with that of many others struggling with diseases as diverse as fibromyalgia, diabetic ulcers, high blood pressure, and mental illness, provides a beacon of hope for those facing illness.

Atkins's book shows that with hope, faith, and prayer nothing is impossible.
