    Nam Myoho Renge Kyo

    Comment


      The wife and I have done very well in the real estate market in the last six years. I'm sure much of that fortune must come from the activity of this thread. We are donating our first permanent personal community center for the activities and growth of our fellow members.

      We will start the renovations to the facility in a couple of weeks and everything should be done within six weeks after that. The new opening will occur around the end of May. Our group has been using this place for the last two years anyway, and moving some things around, we prospered greatly by putting kosen-rufu and faith first.

      We have tremendous gratitude toward the Gohonzon, and pray to continue to be actual proof of the power of the Law--the proof of actual fact.

      The facility will serve our thirty-five to fifty members, and allow for growth to about double that. When its time to get bigger we'll do that! I never thought this dream would actually happen in my lifetime!

      Bowing in humble obeisance and deepest gratitude to you all!

          WOW! Great Job! Is the Tony Matsuoka School in the works as well?

          That is music to my ears!

                Once, the Buddha was dwelling near Shravasti, at the Anathapindada Garden in the Jeta Forest. At that time the World-Honoured One was contemplating and observing the sentient beings of the future. Out of great compassion for them, the Buddha decided to expound on the Dharani of Cundi, the heart of the mother of seven kotis of buddhas. Thus, the Buddha revealed the mantra:

                NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAMBUDDHA KOTINAM. TADYATHA: OM! CALE, CULE, CUNDI SVAHA!

                  Puxian if you READ this thread you will see its a study of Nichiren Buddhism. I would advise spending some time and reading before posting so you are consistent with the topic.

                    I never did a new thread before, but something really cool has happened as part of my experience at ICmag.com. I have found quite coincidently that there are folks here that share my philosophy of life.

                    So far it is me, Hitman, and VegasBuddha!

                    Is there anyone else?

                    Almost anyone reading this (I will asume) will not have a clue as to what the fuck I'm talking about. I'll cut and paste a post from another thread, and at least try and make an effort to explain it.

                    As always this is a forum. All comments are open, and remember most of all that we are all friends, embracing a common form of focus, participation, and expression.

                    Kosen Rufu is World Peace!

                    We have experienced something personally that has led us to believe that the ultimate Law of Life and karma is, cause and effect. There is individual karma and there is collective karma. Why do all of the people from varying backgrounds sometimes have collective fates (9/11 for example)?

                    We believe that the environment reflects the collective karma of those who inhabit it. We have come to accept a view, based on personal experience, that there is a means for individuals to change their Karma, and bring out their Buddha Nature. That is why we chant.

                      Babba is right: What's up with the mumbo jumbo? Do be careful!

                      That "Holy Mantra" is allegedly used in Buddhism and Taoism for Exorcism, spiritual protection and Healing... PasstheDoobie is right that you can chant about anything in the context of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism. Are you trying to perform an exorcism on this thread, if so you may want to consult with the chief exorcist of the Vatican who may have more experience than a layman (LOL)?

                      The mantra you are pushing is purportly able to grant certain things after reciting those words a certain amount of time. In fact, the relatively low amount of recitations would cause that mantra to expire within a month or two of diligent chanting! Try chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo! This is a significant lifelong all encompassing practice that will not lead you astray as Taoism and Hinayana Buddhism continues to confuse many people.

                      We welcome all religions, Buddhists, and none of the above! However, when a new mantra is introduced without validation or a common sense approach towards its propagation some people who practice Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism are mandated to refute any slanderous incantations for the sake of the thread and all its members. There are other threads on Buddhism that may appreciate your approach, but the truth is that your mantra is definitely off topic. When you finish the required amount of recitations remember that upon chanting: "Nam-myoho-renge-kyo!" you reveal your inherent Buddhahood!

                      Good luck and thanks for reminding of the founder's hope for all! Much obliged!

                      Best regards,
                      MyohoDisco

                      **Chanting is very powerful and stronger than yoga, meditation and other types of prayer. Please beware of chanting slanderous mantras especially the exorcism mantra this Puxian Pusa has encountered. Caveat Emptor!

                        Well said! The thread starts out with the exortation, "Calling all Bodhisattvas of the Earth!" This is an inherent acknowledgement of the threads connection to the Lotus Sutra, and more specifically to the teachings of Nichiren which were based on the Lotus Sutra. The thread isn't about just chanting anything in general. It is specifically about chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.

                        But thanks for stopping by! Continue to hang if you want! Just please read some content before you assume you know what to post. Your respect and consideration is most appreciated.

                        Many thanks to Bud and Easy!

                        Deepest respect,

                        T

                            "Nichiren Daishonin writes: 'If the spirit of many in body but one in mind prevails among the people, they will achieve all their goals, whereas if one in body but different in mind, they can achieve nothing remarkable' (WND-1, 618).

                            "Our movement cannot succeed if we are not united in purpose. 'Many in body but one in mind' means solidly uniting our hearts in faith, in our commitment to the practice of the Daishonin's Buddhism. The essence of 'many in body, one in mind' is found in taking action, while never forgetting the beautiful, altruistic spirit of faith, the spirit of warm camaraderie and respect among fellow members, and the spirit to triumph in all struggles."
