    Nam Myoho Renge Kyo


      Welcome. You'll like it here. Even when you are feeling sub-par it's great to clock in and feel better. Like right now, I'm trying to get motivated to chant. I'm tired and frustrated and it's probably because the food situation. The never ending hunger cramp just keeps coming back and the bitter cold weather isn't helping very much. Peace. This Hits for you and yours. Carameliscious! MMMmmmmm, mmmmm good. Nice to meet you and everyone else. Pleased to meet you all- Let's succeed!

        Happy Birthday Bud! Happy Birthday T! We got back from our excellent Vacation and send boku love from sunny San D! Goooooo Chanting Growers! I'm so excited to see new members, great support, old(er) members and long lost members in sync rejoicing each other's Buddhahood and Buddhanatures! This awesome assembly of Buddha's is where "it's at" on the net! I missed all of you and sent tons of daimoku from the ocean to all! When the dolphins came out last wednesday I knew we were all breaking through alot of shit to finish the year up strong! I felt it!

        The Lotus Sutra (- Nam-myoho-renge-kyo!) is in full effect through our causes for shakubuku and deep respect for Gohonzon (pardon the redundancy I'm tipsy on my 15th different wine in 9 days) which we continue to emulate via every post! The great fortune awaiting all of us in 2010 cannot surmount our Chanting Growers gathering! This thread and it's participants are living the Buddha of Beginingless Time's Will and I am so please to have caught up on the great posts!

        Please allow me another 5-6 days, but I'll be here as always in spirit to keep sending powerful victory laced daimoku to you and yours! All my buddha and bodhisattva buddies checked in how cool is that! WOOOOHOOO! PARTY ON CHANTING GROWERS!



          Love to you all!

          Nam Myoho Renge Kyo!!


            "Flint has the potential to produce fire, and gems have intrinsic value. We ordinary people can see neither our own eyelashes, which are so close, nor the heavens in the distance. Likewise, we do not see that the Buddha exists in our own hearts."
            quote by Nichiren.
            Nam Myoho Renge Kyo to everyone and lets start the New Year with a Nam Myoho Renge Kyo!!

            Jah & Happiness = NAM MYO HORENGE KYO


              Happy New Year!!

              New Year's Gosho
              I have received a hundred mushimochi cakes and a basket of fruit. New Year's Day marks the first day, the first month, the beginning of the year and the start of spring. A person who celebrates this day will gain virtue and be loved by all, just as the moon becomes full gradually, moving from west to east, and the sun shines more brightly traveling from east to west.

              First of all, as to the question of where exactly hell and the Buddha exist, one sutra states that hell exists underground and another sutra says that the Buddha is in the west. However, closer examination reveals that both exist in our five-foot body. The reason I think so is that hell is in the heart of a man who inwardly despises his father and disregards his mother, just like the lotus seed, which contains both flower and fruit at the same time. In the same way, the Buddha dwells inside our hearts. For example, flint can produce fire and gems possess value in themselves. We common mortals can see neither our own eyebrows, which are so close, nor heaven in the distance. Likewise, we do not see that the Buddha exists in our own hearts. You may question how is it that the Buddha can reside within us when our bodies, originating from our parents' sperm and blood, are the source of the three poisons and the seat of the carnal desires. But repeated consideration shows the validity of my claim. The pure lotus flower blooms out of the muddy pond, the fragrant sandalwood grows from the soil, the graceful cherry blossoms come forth from trees, the beautiful Yang Kuei-fei was born of a maidservant, and the moon rises from behind the mountains to shed light on them. Misfortune comes from one's mouth and ruins him, but fortune comes from one's mind and makes him worthy of respect.

              The sincerity of making offerings to the Lotus Sutra at the beginning of the New Year is like flowers blooming from trees, a lotus unfolding in a pond, sandalwood blossoming on the Snow mountains, or the moon beginning to rise. Japan, in becoming an enemy of the Lotus Sutra has now invited misfortune from a thousand miles afar, whereas those who believe in the Lotus Sutra will gather fortune from ten thousand miles afar. The shadow is cast by the body, and just as the shadow follows the body, misfortune will befall the country whose people are hostile to the Lotus Sutra. The believers in the Lotus Sutra, on the other hand are like the sandalwood endowed with fragrance. I will write you again.


              The fifth day of the first month.

                        You can't stop me. I'm like a weed. I might disappear for a moment or two, but I will pop up somewhere else and will never stop growing.



                          SD, where are you? Hang tough my Brother! Keep working at it! Miss Ya Flo!

                          Lapides, make the personal vow that you will grow from all of this and that no matter what you are determined to show actual proof. Pray with the desire to do the Buddha's work by expressing with your life what the potential is for everyone else. The only reason you have had this problem was so you would finally focus on what you are here to do. Do it!

                          Caille I am so happy to have you become a part of the thread! Thanks for the New Year wishes and please stay and share with us often.

                              "All disciples and lay supporters of Nichiren should chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with the spirit of many in body but one in mind, transcending all differences among themselves to become as inseparable as fish and the water in which they swim."

Nothing intimidates us. Our encounters with people lead to changing the world. They open a path to protecting the people.
