SGI member since I was 22. I joined in Chicago on August 12th
My conversion to Nichiren Buddhism was different than most in that I had never attended a meeting prior to becoming a member. Neither had anyone explained to me the power of NMRK.
I had always been a voracious reader and had read an article in Cosmopolitan Magazine entitled "Consumer's Guide to Meditation".
Yes, Nichiren Buddhism or NSA as we were then was listed as a form of meditation. The article stated members "chanted for things". I thought it sounded intriguing! :)
I caught a cab to the meeting place and joined the same night! Of course Nichiren Buddhism is so much more profound than just meditation. Most Importantly for me, it answered all the questions I had always asked.
I have much gratitude for meeting this practice of Nichiren Buddhism.
