Nichirenista; Sorry but such well-known posters as Queequeg and others have migrated here. So I'd say this is the active Nichiren forum unless you go to a yahoo Nichiren group (but I think yahoo groups are closing down....)

Its sad, we are so small in number within an already minority religion that we must piggyback off the Himalayan Buddhists and be subject to their sensibilities and interference. We have some of our own unique issues and happenings but we cannot discuss them in our own way.

On the other hand, I am grateful for Dharma Wheel and we all should be.

Karma.

My thought exactly. And why, by the way, isn't there a Nichiren forum?

Myself, Masaru, Queequeg, and illaraza (other people probably deserve to be named) were the last active members of the nichiren sangha, which was founded by user MarkP, who had a stroke and was unable to continue to keep it up. Queequeg held it up for some time after, but in the end, it was too small, there were few active consistent members, it had run it's course.

There were others, but for myself I cannot talk about them as I did not belong to them, before my interest in nichiren Buddhism. We are just small is all. Though these things are also moving towards things like social media.

Speaking of gratitude, some jerk named Queenqeg or whatever has a site that he operates from Silent Hill NJ. Maybe we should check it out.

But seriously. Upasaka Queequeg has been a firm pillar of the Nichiren community for a long time and has had his site operational since before MarkP's ichinensanzen.org went down. We just never went.

Thanks for the shout out, M. I didn't mention my site because eyes on the site might guilt trip me into following through with my professed plans. Lol.
