Hello everyone! I haven't posted anything in a while but yesterday I converted to Honmon Butsuryu Shu. So far, from all I've learned, it's been an incredible experience and my priest is being very helpful. He even shipped me a Gohonzon and juzu beads for free, which is more than awesome. I hope you are all well and you're in my prayers. NMRK

Glad to hear these news and I definetly rejoice! Would you care to share about that school for us who are not at all familiar?

Congrats.

I don't know a lot about HBS, but I believe they chant the Odaimoku exclusively (no sutra recitation) and focus their study on chapters 15-22 of the Lotus Sutra.

Please let us know about your conversion.

What does it mean to have converted?
What reason to convert?

Thanks

I have several articles on the HBS. Contact me if you are interested in reading them. One is an essay by a Kempon Hokke priest. Please understand that I am not a fan of any Nichiren sect or organization since they all deviate more or less from the Lotus Sutra and writings of Nichiren.
