    Great thoughts Easy thanks for giving me something also to think about. It was just something I remember from back in the day but also don't think any of it shuold be quantified but SGI is always throwing out the number goals and I like your perspective and thoughts all about it; so no THANK YOU for giving me something to think about today.
    This is from "The Lessons on the Heritage of the Ultimate Law of Life. 10. The Cluster of Blessings Brought By the Bodhisattvas of the Earth. The Practice of the Buddha's True Disciple to Awaken all People to the Power of the Mystic Law Inherent in Life" in Living Buddhism, Page 73

    Bodhisattvas of the Earth are unhindered by such distinctions as nationality, culture or race. In fact, our global network of Bodhisattvas of the Earth is today forging deep mutual understanding and sympathy transcending differences of ideology, creed and religion. All people are equal, and everyone is worthy of respect. When we awaken to the incredible power that lies within us, we can change our world.

          hello friends!

          time is running wild lately + i've been deviling my head constantly, outside pressure
          so, it's kinda heavy metal right now for me and i'm exhausted to the point that i find comfort only by chanting, it feels great on the other hand that i've found an old true friend of mine, the one that can really help, me.

          i miss you People, please come back!
          Growing every day of our lives

            If even Shariputra, the foremost in wisdom among the disciples of the
            Buddha, failed to understand people's capacity, then how much more
            difficult must it be for ordinary teachers today, in the Latter Day of
            the Law, to have such an understanding! Ordinary teachers who lack an
            understanding of people's capacity should teach only the Lotus Sutra to
            those who are under their instruction.

              "Kosen-rufu (world peace) is a supreme, golden path extending throughout the Latter Day of the Law into the eternal future. Let us continue to advance
              boldly and intrepidly along this path as Nichiren Daishonin teaches.

              This is the way world peace will be accomplished. If we do not widely
              spread the principles and ideals of the Daishonin's Buddhism, there
              will be no hope for the peace and happiness of humankind."

                  Shakyamuni Buddha who attained enlightenment countless kalpas ago, the
                  Lotus Sutra that leads all people to Buddhahood, and we ordinary human
                  beings are in no way different or separate from one another. To chant
                  Myoho-renge-kyo with this realization is to inherit the ultimate Law of
                  Life and Death. This is a matter of the utmost importance for
                  Nichiren's disciples and lay supporters, and this is what it means to
                  embrace the Lotus Sutra.

                    "The moment we resolve "I will become healthy!" "I will become
                    strong!" "I will work cheerfully for kosen-rufu!" our lives begin to
                    move in that direction. We have to make up our minds."

                              Thus faith is the basic requirement for entering the way of the Buddha.
                              In the fifty-two stages of bodhisattva practice, the first ten stages,
                              dealing with faith, are basic, and the first of these ten stages is
                              that of arousing pure faith. Though lacking in knowledge of Buddhism, a
                              person of faith, even if dull-witted, is to be reckoned as a person of
                              correct views. But even though one has some knowledge of Buddhism, if
                              one is without faith, then one is to be considered a slanderer and an
                              icchantika, or person of incorrigible disbelief.

                                "The important thing is to hold firm to your beliefs without being
                                influenced or swayed by what others do or say. Those who live this way
                                are strong and free of regret. What matters most is how you lead your
                                life -- not what those around you are doing."
