The potential to change our karma is enormously increased by our Buddhist practice.
Think for example, of a water pipe. If it is not used for a long time, it will rust and
the water which first runs through it will become turbid. In this example, the turbid water is compared to the unhappy life-condition of the human being which is bound by negative karma.

…However, as you continue chanting to the Gohonzon every day with strong faith, sending clean water into the water pipe, that is, your life, you will eventually change your karma fundamentally without fail just as the water comes clear.
