I've always wanted to do an all US road music tour, but now I'm wondering if I'll have to do it with a gas mask on?

I've seen some pretty shocking documentaries before, but now I understand why this one is up for an academy award.  This destruction of the US natural areas by Natural Gas Fracking is so disturbing, but you have to watch this and you have to spread the word if you are a bodisatva and you want to save the US from completely destroying what's left of it's natural enviroment.  Be prepared to cry when you watch it though.

My "Buddha Moment"...

...I guess you could say, happened not very long ago, and it's been on my mind.


My husband and I have a very strong relationship, with excellent communication, a profound respect for the other, and a great romance. He's my best friend. Well I had done something that hurt him very badly at the end of December, and quite frankly I felt utterly horrible about myself. His trust in me was damaged, and all the self-esteem and faith in myself that had taken me so long to build felt…

Bodhisattvas of the Earth

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin

According to President Toda, this is what "casting off the transient and revealing the true" means for us. Faith means to struggle against deadlock. Faith…

Three Kinds Of Treasure.

*The Three Kinds of Treasure 

President Ikeda's Guidance 

The following story appears in the Buddhist scriptures: 'There were once seven practitioners of Buddhism who had come from a distant land to receive instruction from Shakyamuni Buddha. All lived together in a single lodging. However, though they had come with the intention of seeking the Buddhist way under the guidance of Shakyamuni, they passed day after day together in their lodging, amusing themselves with small talk… Continue
