It's meaning:
We contemplate the glory of Light illuminating the three worlds: gross, subtle, and causal. I am that vivifying power, love, radiant illumination, and divine grace of universal initelligence. We pray for the divine light to illumine our minds.

Man is the master of his own destiny. If one can change his thinking process, he or she can control the circumstances.

Well first let me say that my knowledge of this subject is probably pretty small compared to yours, but I have just read a book on Nichiren Buddhism and I was wondering if you were familiar with Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo? The technique you were mentioned at the end of your entry stronly reminded me of this.
