" The Three Kinds of Treasures." (WND.vol.2pg.291 )

" The key to all of Shakyamuni's teachings is the Lotus Sutra, and the key to the practise of the Lotus Sutra is expounded in the Fukyo chaoter. What does Bodhisattva Fukyo's profound respect for people signify? The real meaning of the Lord Shakyamuni Buddha's appearance in this world lay in his behavior as ahuman being. How profound ! The wise may be called human, but the toughtless are no more than animals."

Freeing the Caged Bird Within

Shin Yatomi

The Buddha nature refers to the potential for attaining Buddhahood, a state of awakening filled with compassion and wisdom. Although the Buddha nature and Buddhahood are sometimes used interchangeably, strictly speaking, the Buddha nature is one's potential for becoming a Buddha, and Buddhahood is the manifest state of that potential. Through the… Continue

Environment is changing

Hi There,

I am adding an entry to an earlier posting. My friends who I work for are going through a painful divorce, and as of last week the business began the slow road to reorganization. Some things turned out as I had anticipated, and we may be scaling back on work hours for two employees. I am saddened that one of them is trying to cause problems for me now, and I am not clear how to chant for him. It is clear to me at this point that he has crossed some lines he shouldn't have,… Continue

"With a Fighting Spirit, Victory is Certain"

When your determination changes, everything else will begin to move in the direction you desire.

The moment you resolve to be victorious, every nerve and fiber in your being will immediately orient

itself toward your success.

On the other hand, if you think "This is never going to work out,"

then at that instant every cell in your being will be deflated and give up the fight,

and then everything really will move in the direction of failure.

This is…

Please won't you help me create

public pressure and e-mail your concerns to:

Just let her know that we need changing stations made available for DISABLED individuals of more than 50 lbs.

At the present time they do not manufacture them because there is not a big enough demand!

Let's create the demand and help our disabled friends get the respect and dignity they so deserve!

We have to start pressuring these people.

Our disabled friends are… Continue

What are the Benefits of this Practice?

Chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo enables us to open our inner lives, discovering who we really are and what great untapped potential we possess. Initial experiences include a pronounced feeling of spiritual and physical rejuvenation and a heightened level of perception and clarity of mind. We may also experience a release of intense emotions, which might have been long suppressed. In concrete terms, we experience:

• Positive changes to longstanding or seemingly insurmountable… Continue

The Ever Present Possibility

I attended a wonderful Staff Retreat this past week for work. The presenter remarked, in response to the problem of examining a challenging issue,

"Clarity where we are is always uplifting, even if it is sobering."

This was a very simple, short statement but one which sufficiently moved me.

I find that the Practice of Daimoku opens to a deep and profound realization of this statement.

In my own practice (and others may relate), I find Gongyo… Continue

I have had SO much poison turn into medicine this past year or so. I have had SO many benefits. One is that I will be able to attend FNCC this October. I have been wanting to go for the 6 years I have been a member and ALWAYS something has come up or something else has need my attention or money.

I never understood how important the Quality of the Heart is in Buddhism. Sure, we have a great organization. My area is happily growing, marching forth, so many people liberated, so many people living what is in their hearts!

Heart is important to foster youth. A leader must have heart in this organisation, must have heart in general, both in the organisation and the world outside it. Kosenrufu is our goal...

There was a time in my life when I couln’t tell you who LEAH was. I was just a body with many personalities,Iwas afraid to be me, afraid of what people might say of me and most of all, afraid of getting hurt, but as years passed I’ve learned that no one is exempted in getting hurt. I went nuts ; I couln’t believe that those people I’ve treated my best could do this to me, my self-steem got low. I tried to avoiding some people,and I put the blamed for all things that happened to me to them,but… Continue

Change is in but a single whisper

For so long I felt like my life was in a constant daze.

Always hoping what I was going through was just a phase.

For so long i felt all alone with no one to turn too.

I felt like no one understood what I was going through.

A change in my life I knew I needed but how to begin.

Then a friend told me the change lies with in.

A single phrase Nam Myoho Renke Kyo she told me to say.

She told me it would change my life and all my misery would fade… Continue
