      Yah sure can DG! However, even better would be for you to encourage your friend through your life to chant for themselves. We are the Buddhas we make the Benefits! Tell them what you know from this thread and your practice and they will understand!

      Go on take it up notch! BAM!

        Good morning friends !!!
        Well the wife and I are off to the bay area this morning to go see Furthur. Its Phil Lesh's 70th birthday and he still leads the old Grateful Dead band around the country on tour. What an amazing vibrant man !! Should be alot of fun.
        We will get to make a stop at the Sokka Gakkai cultural center and chant in front of Big Gohonzon !!! wooooooooop !!! Makes for a fun and exciting trip. Of course ill bring the Omamori Gohonzon to keep up the chanting along the way. Im back to chanting now and im going to stay on this roll and keep this practice alive !!!! Its so easy to fall into complacency and not be able to give yourself that kick in the ass it sometimes takes to get you going again. Thanks to my wonderful wife who knows me so well .... I sometimes take a larger boot then normal Thanks to you all for the wonderful encouragement that everyones presence brings to this thread. Thanks everyone !!!! Now get in front of that Gohonzon and chant !!!

            To have a voice that reverberates with conviction and moves other's hearts is vital. With a life force charged by chanting wholeheartedly for the sake of kosen-rufu and for the sake of our friends, let us go out and share our philosophy with others. The gosho teaches us that:

            "The voice carries out the work of the Buddha."*

                "We can't achieve anything worthwhile unless we stand up resolutely as an individual with the readiness to face any obstacle we may encounter. Friends are an important factor in strengthening that resolve. As the eminent American Renaissance thinker Ralph Emerson (1803-82) said: 'With [a friend] we are easily great.'

                  "In the eighth volume of Great Concentration and Insight and in the eighth volume of The Annotations on “Great Concentration and Insight” it says, “The stronger one’s faith, the greater the protection of the gods.” This means that the protection of the gods depends on the strength of one’s faith."

                        Great stuff Babba. Lately you've been pouring out your heart and making me feel really good! Thanks for all those great posts. Same to you T!

                        Today is a weird day, I feel like I woke up a little bit off kilter but I'm ok. I really need to chant more this weekend. House hunting, school, work, everything else has been tough. All my friends are telling me to chill out and I still feel I'm not doing enough. I wrote the first chapter to my autobiography which will certainly change before the final version is complete. Many chapters will involve this thread and I will be mentioning the most prolific chanting growers have helped me see how the rest of my life is a bonus I must cherish and protect.

                        Thanks for fighting with me through your continued daimoku. I just keep chanting because there is no greater happiness.

                        be good,
