About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
I've practicing Nichiren Buddhism since 1969 in Chicago and Las Vegas since 1979. I have been very happy with the practice, obstacles and all. I'm a retired lawyer and administrator for the City of Las Vegas. Please visit my FREE site AmericanGongyo.Org which teaches Daimoku and Gongyo chanting in perfect Japanese pronunciation, rhythm and tone. This is a line-by-line tutorial with an American English pronunciation guide. This is a service to anyone who wants to learn the correct way to chant.

Hi Bob,

The Value Of A Smile
by Author Unknown

A smile cost nothing, but gives much.

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.

Hi Bob,

I just listened to some of the recordings on What a great resource! Thank you!!

I'm curious though. Isn't the "regular" speed daimoku and gongyo pretty slow? The daimoku is at about 30 per minute. At that rate, it takes over 555 hours to do a million daimoku. And a 6 minute gongyo? 4 1/2 or 5 seems slow to me. We do 4 or 4 1/2 at meetings. My personal gongyo is about 3 minutes.

I'd appreciate your comments.

Hi Bob Hasegawa,
Thank you for joining A Youthful Diary and Guidance Today.
I am sure our hearts and spirits will be uplifted through the encouragements of President Ikeda's words.
Congratulations for your 40 years of practice. Keep it up. Continue chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo no matter. Good fortune will chase after you. Have a good day. Cheers!

Bob, Now I am able to recognize you!
Oh, I do miss Mr. Ted Osaki. He used to come down to Louisville, Kentucky and encouraged us! I send daimoku for him everyday during my gongyos.
I was in the cape dance and Pasqual was our teacher and we participated the Seattle convention, then--- What a great memories for me and us! thanks for all that photos. Jinja cales

I have found your site extremely helpful. I was introduced to Buddhism this past June and your website has made learning Gongyo much easier. I just had area leaders in my home and they commented on how well and precise my recitation of Gongyo was. I now lead Gongyo at district meetings and feel very comfortable with it. Thank you so much. I always suggest your website to prospective and new members. It is a fantastic resource.
