Profile Information

About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
Well, I joined the SGI in 1991 and was active through 1998 but have been on and off with my practice. I've supported my wife's practice though, even though my own hasn't been consistent.

Lately I've felt a void in my life, as though something was missing and came to the realization that my lack of consistent practice and study were most likely at the root of that feeling.

It's funny, my wife and I have always encouraged our grand-kids to participate in activities (which they do, and my wife does as well) but I myself have been slack when it comes to that.

Anyway, I'm here to recapture the old YMD spirit I had back in the day....I'm hopeful that all of you will inspire me to do just that!

Hi Armando,
Welcome to the site!
Greetings from Malaysia.

" To accept is easy; to continue is difficult. But Buddhahood lies in continuing faith."

The Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai stated, “One accepts because of one’s power of faith and continues because of one’s power of constant thought.”

“This sutra is hard to uphold; if one can uphold it even for a short while I will surely rejoice and so will the other Buddhas.”

From now on, always remember the words “This sutra is hard to uphold.”
(The Difficulty of Sustaining Faith --- WND, pg 471)

Faith like flowing water

Just tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you know or hear about us, how long you've been practicing and maybe why are you here? ;-D
