Re: Misunderstanding the Poison Drum

"The heart (meaning) of this text preaches that to slander the Hokekyo and fall to hell is hundreds and thousands and myriad times superior to the merit of offering to, adhering to, and adoring Ganges’ sands of Buddhas, the Buddha Shakya, the Buddha Amida and so on.” (STN, v. 1, 260-261) Mark I dou...

Re: Hi

It's all interesting to watch....Undeniable , just like some say it took a Mao to give back China to it's people and take it back from Britain and European interests.....It took Sensei Ikeda to bring this "Teaching" to the west and be as successful as it is.

Re: I'm finding it hard to make positive changes in my life

In other words, say you're looking for employment but you don't put in applications. We can't expect the power of Daimoku to just grant us a job if we're not also focusing on making good causes. Right? Why would you question about getting employment even if you don't put in an application for a job...

Re: Thank you all

As for SGI and Pride, that's something I feel has been overall good - many trans people are supported as members and leaders. However, I had heard from older members that they used to get told to chant to be straight! I know SGI has changed a lot since then though. Well I never heard of them asking...

You have a habit of going outside the topic and provoking Trollish reactions to which I make no interest to engage.
