I Have the same sort of thing. i get all lungy and try to clear it...it's like in my vocal chords.. i think it is a purification thing happening...on a physical le...

Re: Gohonzon Offerings

Re: Gohonzon Offerings

As far as prayers for offerings, that may be one area where schools differ considerably; and within as well. In my experience in SGI and NSA offerings are preceeded and followed by not much more than a gassho and possibly daimoku. I should think suitably dedicating the merit wouldn't be out of plac...

Re: Gohonzon Offerings

SGI proposes a series of prayers introduced by daimoku- see pages ix, 18,19. The old NSA had something similar- I don't know what Nichiren Shoshu does these days but would be surprised if it was a lot different. The old NSA 1st prayer invoked quite a few shoten zenjin by name, SGI omits the names b...

"You don't practice". More of the same from you.
