I was thinking about the concept of peace when for some reason Einstein’s famous equation, E=MC2*, popped into my head.
Energy and mass, the equation states, are different forms of the same thing—another validation of what has become nearly indisputable: Everything in the universe is connected to everything else in the universe.
But what had never occurred to me before is another implication of Einstein’s equation: Matter is… Continue

"Patience is a kind of understanding. An understanding that transcends
the 'limitations' of the moment. It's a teacher standing at the
blackboard repeating A is for Apple. B is for Boy. Day after day to
small puzzled faces. Because she believes that one day they will make
the leap that connects the sound to the letter the letter to the word
the word to the shiny red contours of a classic fruit. Patience is a
kind of trust. A trust… Continue

i am very sad and concerned about the oil disaster in the gulf of mexico.I was thinking since it is such an emergency may be all the SGI members worldwide could chant specifically for a solution at the kosen-rufu gongyos worldwide that they can stop the oil leak as soon as possible. If we all concentrate on this ( many in body one in mind) i am sure it will help a lot. If you like this idea please talk to your leaders about it.

In the near future I intend to start a Recovery Group locally based on the 12-Steps of Liberation. This will be a decidedly Buddhist Recovery Group independent from A.A. or any other established Recovery
Group. As other 12-Step Groups though, all Buddhists in recovery or
those that are interested in Buddhism will be welcome. The group
meetings will not be strictly for SGI or Nichirin Buddhist, but all
Buddhists in general.
* I have… Continue

Today I started a group here. It is called, The 12-Steps of Liberation. It is a group that utilizes a unique 12-Steps based on the Four Noble Truths and the Eight Fold Path combined to form a decidedly Buddhist set of 12-Steps of Recovery. The group is a private group to assure confidentiality, but any SGI Members in Recovery can ask to be a member of the group. Membership is not restricted to one type of addiction or another and also welcomes people with dysfunctional and self-destructive… Continue

In On Attaining Buddhahood Nichiren Daishonin wrote,
"You must never think that any of the eighty thousand sacred teachings of Shakyamuni's lifetime or any of the Buddhas and bodhisattvas of the ten directions and three existences are outside yourself. Your practice of the Buddhist teachings will not relieve you of the… Continue

I hav just embarked on my 7th reading of the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin Vol.1, but this time around my approach is different from my previous, I want to stretch the degree of my assiduous study of the gosho by doing indexing on passages in the gosho based on practical application into our daily life and compile these passages into easily accessible form, this will be challenging. Just as SGI President Ikeda quoted in relation to assiduous study of Nichiren Daishonin's gosho where he said… Continue

Silastic tubing to be pulled from my nose and upper airway tomorrow am. Nose is mighty sore, but swelling has gone down considerably- benefit- no polyps found during surgery. Looking forward to less noisy breathing at night and decrease in facial pain and headaches.
It has been over 2 weeks since physical therapist has sent request for authorization for treatment plan physical therapy of back. Injury flared up 4/10, saw doc initially 5/12 which started the process.
