Chant for My Homeless Friends

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…

The Buddha Resides in a Pure Heart" (WND-II, pg885)

At first one may seem to have faith in the Lotus Sutra, but it is hard to maintain that faith to the last. Water for example may be stirred by the wind, or blossoms may lose their hue with the fading of the morning dew. How then have you been able to persist in your faith up until today?

Exert Yourself in the Two Ways of Practice and Study

Exert Yourself in the Two Ways of Practice and Study



The writings of Nichiren Daishonin are teachings of hope. When we study these writings and chant Nam MyoHo Renge Kyo, our lives come to shine all the more brightly and overflow with courage, the wisdom of the Mystic Law and the power of the Buddha.



The Daishonin encourages us to talk to others about Buddhism. Let us vibrantly reach out to others in dialogue. The more we talk to others about our practice, the more people… Continue
