Re: Thank you all

Does my heart good to see you taking pride in your practice for practice sake. it's not about getting things but evolving to the point where things come on their own, make you pleasantly surprised and one realizes the true benefit of trust in the ongoing efforts of practice faith and study. just a h...

Re: Introducing the practice of Daimoku to friends and relatives

This whole christian thing people have about christianity confuses me. I realize that most of us were christian or Jewish . But in this day and age so much of what we think is Christian doctrine is now some political power thing created by rome and the Roman emperors. I don't believe i ever could fi...

Re: Introducing the practice of Daimoku to friends and relatives

The degradation of Lord Sakyamuni and the subsequent teachings that make like he was some transient Buddha...Gakki and ShoShu words...is not really going to bring a newcomer to the table with reality .

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

Re: Introducing the practice of Daimoku to friends and relatives

Please go back to reading the "Nichiren Shoshu - Basics of Practice" to refresh your old doctrines on Hokkeko teachings. Or it may be apparent that you never learned them correctly on the first place so now you have no current understanding of my statement. :yinyang: So no answer,or discussion, jus...

Hi

Wishing you the very best

Well I did and enjoyed the post. It revitalized my basic instincts towards life with this practice.

What Gohonzon do you use.
Is it one of Nichiren Shonin's like Shu uses ?

Yes, I think that returning practicing items to natural elements, including fire, are the best methods to dispose of them.

Re: Juzu question

I think Queequeg's take on it is the best guideline : treating them with respect is the important thing... I have no idea what a priest would say; might want to ask one of them.

Re: Can schizophrenics make progress to enlightenment through meditation?

There was a guy i recall in Nichiren shoshu's Soka Gakki.. He was bombarded with voices in his head ...all the time...his doctor told him he just had no option but to live with it....this is early 70's toronto.. So he found Nichiren's practice and tried his best to do it and all the Gakki asked of h...

it is absolutely impossible to enter into awakening unless exactly following the instructions for practise that Nichiren sets forth.
I disagree... the poison arrow doctrine proves it, the poison arrow, will eventually be the cause for awakening....

Re: What will happen when Daisaku Ikeda dies?

If the Gohonzon is not Shakyamuni, then there is no transmission of the Lotus Sutra in Nichiren practice. which is why the whole thing is happening for sentients caught in samsaric cycle . The thing is this...i think ..and this is just me...that just because Shoshu decided Nichiren was the Primordi...
