            Hello!

            We are emceeing kosen-rufu gongyo tomorrow and very excited about it, our new shakubuku Amby is coming and everything is gravy over here! I'm just focusing on upping the quantity of daimoku I pump out over here, I know thats the key and its really keeping me on track.

            My friends things are going up like the stock market during the good times; so let's keep Babba, Georgia, Bonzo, Socal, SouthernGirl, GordyP, Hitman and all our comrades in our daily prayers, I'm sending my support through my actions and daimoku, please know you could count on me.

            Lately things have been going very well and I just want to report its strengthening my practice daily. Keep fighting the good fight my friends and lets keep focused on kosen-rufu, our very lives are the beacons for kosen-rufu in this time (age we live in). I know we have an amazing purpose and the proof is our lives.

            Thanks always for all the support.

            Your brother,
            EasyD

                how's with our sick sister pass?
                i've been chanting for her lately, wish her all the best if you talk to her.

                the power of chanting amazes me every day, how much bullshit can i remove only by chanting every morning and evening, the goshos teach me something new every time i recite them, i love the abillity to actually fight those demons in my head!

                universal love to all of ya!

                      Nam Myoho Renge Kyo
                      Ok I have a question... lets see where this discussion takes us ?. I have never ever thought of putting a tatoo on my body. But I made a good friend of a tattoo artist who does beautiful work. This has made me consider a tatt. Alot of his work is in like Ganesh or Ganeesh style tatts. Just wondering is there any slander involved in having Nam Myoho Renge Kyo tattooed in like a band around my leg ? Would love to have it writtin in sanscript, japanese , and english bands. All three bands one above the other on my leg. Just not sure of any slanders or consequences of putting this on my body. So I open for discussion and advice this subject. Im far from decided on this .... would just like to hear some thoughts on it. Ive never even thought of having anything else put on. But this idea intrigues me. Thoughts ??

                        i don't know about the slander issue with you proposed tattoo but i have a lotus flower tattoo. My mother in law said it's a sign of the devil, i told her she was VERY mistaken.

                          Bajasuace Im so happy to see that your following the thread. Hope you will make your presence known more often Lotus flower sounds like a nice tatt

                            This week we will all show actual proof of this practice of Chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo!

                            Babba, go for it brother I've seen christians with mosaics of the virgin mary all over there torsos and angels and devils all over, also I know jewish people cut off the flesh that has a tattoo if they are to be buried in a jewish cementary. I think you could have Nam-myoho-renge-kyo! anywhere you want since your object of devotion (worship) is Gohonzon. Might be cool to shakubuku someone when they ask "what does that tattoo mean?". I had a great meeting today with my gf, we were emcees and alot of members after the meetings told us how encouraged they felt from our high life conditions, I think having a cool tattoo would be an expression of your Devotion to The Mystic Law of Cause and Effect! If momma doesn't mind seeing it, why not?

                            Bud tell Georgia we're chanting for her everyday too, same goes for Scegy to get a true Gohonzon and for Bonzo to share more on his progress and for Socal to post that great encouragement everyday, for our site to be safe and for all of us to carry out kosen-rufu and tell more people and spread The Wonderful Mystic Law.

                            Nam-myoho-renge-kyo!

                              Daily Wisdom: From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin

                              February 03"Great events never have minor omens. When great evil occurs, great good follows. Since great slander already exists in our land, the great correct Law will spread without fail. What could any of you have to lament? Even if you are not the Venerable Mahakashyapa, you should all perform a dance. Even if you are not Shariputra, you should leap up and dance. When Bodhisattva Superior Practices emerged from the earth, did he not emerge dancing?"

                              Here, right now, is the chance for us all to make dynamic growth!
                              Let's courageously and decisively initiate action!


                              ---- DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT ----
                              "The American steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie (1835–1919)
                              said: 'There are times in most men’s lives that test whether they be dross
                              or pure gold. It is the decision made in the crisis which proves the man.'
                              The truly capable shine in times of difficulty.

                              "The ancient Roman poet Lucretius wrote: 'Thus it is more useful to
                              scrutinize a man in danger or peril, and to discern in adversity what manner
                              of man he is: for only then are the words of truth drawn up from the very
                              heart, the mask is torn off, the man remains.'
                              How true this is.

                              "In Plutarch’s Parallel Lives, we find the observation: 'But the truly noble
                              and resolved spirit raises itself, and becomes more conspicuous in times of
                              disaster and ill fortune.'
                              Standing ready to confront hardships—that is the
                              Gakkai spirit. As the Daishonin writes: 'The greater the hardships befalling
                              him [the votary of the Lotus Sutra], the greater the delight he feels,
                              because of his strong faith”
                              (WND, 33).'"
