We fight the devilish functions

And those who distort the truth.

We protect our sincere members.

We foster our capable youth.

Ikeda Sensei is our mentor.

He's traveled the world for peace.

We vow to carry on the battle.

Our efforts will never cease.

We pray with deep resolve.

Victory and justice the goals we seek.

When confronted by evil,

We don't hesitate to… Continue

Ultimate prayer

Posted on May 29, 2009 at 7:42am 0 Comments

I got this from my Chapt. leader Sensei's guidance- "Pray that all the heavenly deities manifest in our body & we develop the same life-condition, life-force, & vitality as Nichiren Daishonin. " ( unofficial translation) From YWD HQ meeting in Japan. I chanted this way this morning & feel really great! I got up feeling sick. Have a great Buddha-licious day! Kathy

Climbing by kathy delicato

Every day, I climb the mountain,

Struggling upward, even an inch.

Forward motion is most important,

Never giving up or giving in.

Every day, I see the people

Straining against overwhelming odds.

How noble is their determination!

How inspiring to each other they are!

We must stay connected, life to life.

Never isolated in misery and defeat.

When I fall you help me get up

I help you rise again when you're in… Continue

Still I am Dancing

STILL I AM DANCING by kathy delicato

Still I am dancing,

In my mind.

Though my legs have

Forgotten the steps.

Time can be

Most unkind,

But still I am dancing.

Still I am dancing,

In my dreams.

Whirling, twirling,

Unfettered by

My body's limitations.

Unlikely as it seems,

Still I am dancing.

Though my mirror shows me

Lines and wrinkles,

Crispy crinkles

Around my eyes.

Cellulite… Continue

On Hope

Posted on May 27, 2009 at 8:12pm 1 Comment

Hope is Another Word for Courage

The determination to never allow yourself to be defeated is hope. It is a choice we must all make, especially when life has handed us a particularly difficult situation. The reality is life is in constant flux. What exists today will change in time. If we base our happiness on something outside ourselves, we will be sure to experience a feeling of hopelessness.

The important thing is to build a strong self-identity and a strong… Continue

Hi Kathy,

Thank you for writing! I'm not sure I will be able to help your friend out, I'm not very near Taplow and am pretty much out of the country all summer, however, if she's interested she could email SGI-UK and ask them what her nearest district is. Thats how I found mine, just emailed them and they gave me the contact details for my local meeting and off I went, and never looked back! I don't know whether she'd be happy just turning up on her own, but she won't regret it if she does! I wish I knew someone who practiced around that area to introduce her to!

Keep writing and inspiring others with your words,
Take Care,
