About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
I created this site in 2008. Now there is Facebook and other ways to connect online but back when we started there was not. After meeting an SGI Fortune Baby and traveling with her meeting other inspiring SGI members and created this site for us all to stay in touch.

It has grown a lot since then and I appreciate your support and participation.

I received my Gohonzon in August of 2003 and created this community shortly thereafter SGI Members to meet and support each other in their practice.

I think this site is a great opportunity for Kosen-rufu and invite you here in that spirit. Feel free to add me as a friend or send me an email, I really do appreciate every message I receive, even if I can't reply right away.

SGI Buddhism (.net) wasn't far along when Dan lovingly stepped in to help guide us. Thank you Dan!

I always love meeting positive, uplifting people and I'm thrilled you're here.

Chant for My Homeless Friends

Posted on January 12, 2017 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

I have a favor to ask. I have a book about how to help the homeless coming out in May and we literally just put up a community so when the book comes out there will have a place to meet others and help our homeless friends online and off.

I would love to have you be part. I am hoping you will chant for this communities success and the people that will be helped if people engage in their communities. I will also be giving away free…


Suggest SGI Authors & Books for the Radio Show

I'll have a segment on my upcoming show where I interview a Goodreads Author. I'm hoping you can suggest SGI Authors and books for the show that are on Goodreads. Its also a good chance for Kosen-rufu as we share the books and Authors on the Goodreads group and it will help me find guests that will inspire. 

What SGI Authors or books…

Hi Chris! I love you site and was excited to create my own profile! I have had no contact with any SGI members since moving to Lubbock, TX, so this was a wonderful discovery!

Hey, there is a lady on this site named Kate KWAME who is sending me emails trying to get me to give her my bank information, claiming I am heir to millions in an offshore account. She is clearly using this site to try to scam people and I am hoping you will be able to do something about it. I dont have instagram or facebook, but I can send you a copy of the emails another way if you would like. Best to you.

Issue with SGI graphic...for now new members will be assigned neutral photo of birds on a branch (photograph by me from Utah) for their default profile things?
