      Come one come all to the greatest message on earth!

      Dear Pearlemae:

      Thank you for your post. However, please refrain from posting without reading into the basis of this thread. We are practicing Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism here and not worshiping Mr. Dalai Lama. I'm very grateful for all who post on this thread, but it is imperative that we remain focused on topic because this thread is so important to me and many other people. This site welcomes all people from every part of the world and if you wish to explore your belief in the 6 syllable Tibetan mantra. The Tibetan school is not very dissimilar from the Buddhism practice on this site and thread. The following information will clarify a bit further:
      Tantric Buddhism uses meditation, mudras (hand gestures), esoteric rituals, many kinds of mantras, sutra recitation, and, in some schools, the harnessing and elevation of sexual energy. Tantric Buddhism is practiced in Tibet and in areas culturally influenced by Tibet. Like Zen and Nichiren Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism has gained a foothold in the west.

      Tibetan Buddhists believe that when their Teacher dies, he will be quickly reincarnated among them to lead them again. They believe he can be identified in childhood by auspicious signs that had accompanied his birth, his exceptional abilities and his past life recollections.

      The leader of one Tibetan school is the Dalai Lama, who is also the political leader of the Tibetan government in exile in India.

      In contrast to Tibetan Buddhism, Nichiren Buddhism:

      · Does not use meditation. We actively practice what we chant for in our daily practice of gongyo and chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo!

      · Does not use mudras (except for holding the hands in an ordinary prayer position when chanting).

      · Does not employ esoteric rituals (no fasting, no alms giving, no required circumcision).

      · Uses only one mantra ( Nam-myoho-renge-kyo! ), not many kinds.

      · Does not seek to employ sexual energy.

      · Does not believe that Nichiren is reborn among his followers.
      You will really like how this practice will also go well with your International Cannagraphic interests! We have a merry band of Chanting Growers and the best is yet to come for all of us! A lot of great things in motion, kick back, read some more and let's keep reacquainting with each other and having a great time!

                            "'Treasures of the heart' are not restricted to this existence. They adorn our hearts forever, throughout the three existences, and they are also the key source that enables us to acquire 'treasures in the storehouse' and 'treasures of the body.'Genuine happiness is not determined by 'treasures in the storehouse' or 'treasures of the body.' It's determined by the inner strength and richness of our hearts. If our hearts are burning with hope and courage at all times and filled with the spirit of challenge, we'll be brimming with joy and vigour no matter what our situation. This is true happiness."

                              Where is my Brother Scegy? I was looking back through the years here, and came upon our first post from Scegy and the ensuing conversation. It was almost four years ago and since most people don't take the time to read back through the thread, I'm going to repost them. Sceggers are you out there? Thanks for being my Brother! (this starts on page 177)

                              i started to read this forum untill i noticed that there are1 180 pages but i read the first 20 so i think i know what u'r talking here
                              i must say that i was touched knowing that other ppl think like me, but at the same time i felt terribly sad because i see no light here....i've had these kind of thoughts in my mind since i was little....and untill i met MJ i couldn't get out of my depression, i was effected by every single person i met, i always put other ppls infront of me...and after thinking a lot with MJ i realized that it is I that i should be worring about and taking care of in the first place then the others...i know it's a common expression but i didn't really understand it until reacently...i could go on...but let's stop
                              the more i live, the more i realize that most of the ppl on this planet don't like themselves and therefore they give the same respect to others.....problem? capitalism mixed with politics....and their consequences.

                              solution? how many ppl watches tv, reads the newspapers, goes to partys and drops dead....list goes on and on

                              do you see what i mean?

                                Would you believe me if I told you we are on the same page! I too struggle within myself and externally as well! I also detest the sick effect capitalism has engrained upon society and the lack of fruitful progression in many realms of polictics actually regressing since the self distructive nature of SOME have overrun the masses in many instances, look at the "dark" continent, check out the sick and hungary in anytown in the world and realize we need to free ourselves and engage in a positive movement somewhere along the line.

                                That's where SGI comes into play. SGI is a buddhist organization which promotes Kosen-rufu, or world peace. It is possible once it begins with you, but believe you me it only gets tougher! Ohh i know, I jumped into SGI looking for a panacea for lifes woes and what I have found is the conduit into enlightenment! The path is long and arduous but the results are relative to your PRACTICE! in other words the more you put faith in yourselve and empower yourself the more you grow and the more benefits you will reap! Freeing yourself and propagating the fruits of your wisdom will only make you chant, NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO more vigorously! It is our mantra and the saying of sayings, omnipotent words when examined further will help you come more into touch with your Buddha nature. Its within all of us bodhisattvas of the earth! Believe in yourself and bring upon the most excellent lifeforce, laden within you!

                                Thanks for stopping by, your almost there!
