YaY Herbie!!! *Applauds*

Thanks Kelly for sharing this! I'm a guitarist and Herbie Hancock was a key player to get me interested in Nichiren Buddhism and SGI.

Deep gratitude for his soul and his music

Thank you again for sharing such a pearl

Wow!!! Indeed, this is especially good news. Just moved and my energy level, inspiration, commitment, determination, and Daimoku are now super-charged! My undying love, respect, and gratitude for Ikeda Sensei is even more limitless as well. I'm also much more appreciative of Brother Herbie and all SGI members. Thanks to one & all for everything you love and dream and accomplish and to Kelly for such a wonderful post. Sincerely, M
