I would like to share my experience.  I have cancer living in me. Please note I do not call it "my cancer".  Actually I call it Fred.  As a nurse I had determined years ago that if I ever got cancer, I would not use allopathic medicine.  I had seen the ravages of cancer therapy in the hospitals and nursing homes in which I worked. 

When I realized that something was not right, I started on a natural medicine modality.  I used that for 3 1/2 years to slowly get the cancer out.

During this time, I went to FNCC because I wanted to go one more time before I died.  That started a wonderful addiction to FNCC.  One of my trips there, I was at the Lake Side Gohonzon room chanting and came to the realization that cancer only wants to live.  Just like me

I started to chant for the cancer, to jobutsu the cancer and that when it is reborn, it be a higher life form that understands the sanctity of life and not have to eat me or anyone else for food.  

I realized that cancer is not evil.  It is simple minded, single minded, in that it only wants to live.  Just like me.

Since chanting like this, I have come to know that life is precious, not only to me, but to every living thing in the universe. 

I still use natural medicine to keep Fred down to a livable place. 

Because of this experience, I laugh a whole lot more, enjoy the view more and want to talk to people, meet people and enjoy the life I now have.

Kumi, on my page there is a blog called how to get the heart of the mentor for shakabuku. In that discussion Dan (the site monitor) replies with an experience from Washington DC member. So go to my page and look in my blog for that experience.

Comment by manideepa purkait(halder) on October 25, 2010 at 9:26am
DEAR FRIENDS, Yesterday evening me and my son returning from our village house at kharagpur after enjoying our puja vacation. After 1 our journey we stop our car coz of a jam. We r enjoying. Suddenly a over load wet sand loaded truck smashed our car from the back side .A few second…………………I look back where my 6 years son Neil was shouting and crying mammaaaaaaaaaa and guridi laying down. Crowd and crowd, people trying for rescue but we r locked. First the unknown faces of god rescue my Neil but we…? Another half an our, suddenly I show some fire, I close my eyes for feeling my sons last kiss, my mammas face, my papa and my relatives and some ones face who is my love and waiting for my last moment’s. I am help less, I am crying please some one send my son home back. Then it’s a long process…………….. When doc’s told me that, he wants to watch at least 3 hours being a mother I can’t express my feelings what happened on me. JAYA and her Buddhist friends and me start chanting and now he is good.
