Are you a 15 or 20 minute person or some other size? One hour per square charts always discourage me, lol. I'm a 20 minute gal. 15 minutes clutters the chart with all those boxes and I'm not disciplined enough to tackle half hour ones. What's your perfect daimoku chart?

I"m trying to get into a groove and not one that triggers an OCD episode where I HAVE to chant at a certain time/amount otherwise, less than three hours into my day I think I'm worthless because I haven't hit some bizarro standard my brain decided to create. That's (almost) an exaggeration! I seem to do better when I center on 20 minute spurts so, I like my breakdowns into 20 minute daimoku charts. I've tried to design my charts so the people who like 15 minutes feel equally represented.
I count the total time spent before the Gohonzon. Gongyo, daimoku, etc. I find it encouraging and fulfilling to be able to fill in 3 or 4 little "hearts" (I have the new sunflower booklet daimoku chart) at a time.
I haven't seen that one. Any way you could scan a page or two and then I could reproduce it? Thanks!
Hi, I'm currently using a very old daimoku chart which is A5 size and folds in half into a book. There's a front cover and then three pages for recording your daimoku. Each page has 4 blocks for January to April, May to August and September to December. Each block is designed with 10 stars across, by ten rows.... each sun can be coloured in and counts for 5 mins. I've tried other charts but this one is great because even if you only do 20 min, thats 4 stars filled in! I've just finished filling in April and started on May....... I'm well on my way to my first recorded million daikmoku.

Hope this helps?

This sounds like the best idea to me - I sometimes am a 15 minute or 20 minute person, but this just makes it totally adaptable to either style!

Thanks for sharing :-)

My perfect daimoku chart would let me fill in a blank every time I chant daimoku at all. Twenty minutes is about how long I usually chant, and I don't often get it done more than once a day. When I chant with someone else, it seems easier and more appealing to go longer. Does group daimoku count?
All daimoku counts -- Yippie!!!
I do a 20 minute daimoku-chant in halves. Normally, I do one half before the sutras and the other after Expedient Means.
I don't mind the 15 minute blocks at all. I like things in quarters. It seems tidy or something. I know, weird. I always pre fill in my boxes so that my lazy nature doesn't sneak in and cut my daimoku short. I usually fill in 4 which is good for 15 minutes prior to gongyo and 45 minutes after.
