I'm from Germany living in Spain where I met the Nichiren Budism 8 years ago. Since than I'm practicing and half a year later I received Gohonzon, which totally changed my life. I'm very greatful that I found the Nichiren Buddhism, because I can change my karma now for a happy futur in this life and all the ones which are still coming.
Thank you for joining A Youthful Diary and Guidance Today.
"The power of daimoku is invincible. Through daimoku, there is no situation we cannot change, no obstacle we cannot surmount, no battle in kosen-rufu or in daily life we cannot win. As long as we possess strong faith, we can, at every moment, turn wherever we are into a Land of Tranquil Light." ---- Daisaku Ikeda
This is what SGI friends are for --- saving others from drowning in the sea of sufferings.
It enriches those who receive,
without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,
cheer to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone
until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
