IKEDA'S DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT. THEN I POST BULLETINS WITH INFO ON OUR PRACTICE AND PHILOSOPHIES. THRU MY OWN BULLETINS AND BEING ALLOWED BY MYSPACE FRIENDS TO POST BULLETINS ON THEIR PAGES, I AM CAPABLE OF LITERALLY REACHING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. I HAVE ALMOST ONE THOUSAND FRIENDS, SOME OF WHICH ARE VERY FAMOUS. THESE ARE NOT PERSONAL FRIENDS, JUST MYSPACE FRIENDS. TO MY ONE THOUSAND FRIENDS, THEY MAY HAVE A MILLION OR SO FRIENDS. JUST TO NAME A FEW, BEYONCE, KIM KARDASHIAN, FLAVOR FLAV. PEOPLE LIKE THIS HAVE A SIX FIGURE FRIEND LIST. SO JOIN ME, MY SGI BROTHERS AND SISTERS, IN MASSIVE SHAKABUKU FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME. BELOW IS WHAT I SENT OUT THREE TIMES TODAY WHICH IS SUNDAY SEPT 6 2009:

Daily Encouragement by Daisaku Ikeda
Sunday, Sept 6, 2009 **


We often hear people say they aren't capable. But this is a defeatist attitude. If you feel you aren't capable, then tap into the great reservoir of potential that lies inside you. Since we embrace the *Daishonin's Buddhism, we have recourse to daimoku*. If we chant daimoku to the Gohonzon*, we can bring forth all the ability and strength we will ever need.


Nichiren Daishonin (1222-1282)
The founder of the buddhism upon which the SGI bases its activities for peace and happiness in the world. He established the chanting of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo to the Gohonzon as the universal practice for attaining enlightenment. The name Nichiren means {sun lotus}, and Daishonin is an honorific title the means {great sage}

Daimoku:
Nam-myoho-renge-kyo

Gohonzon:
The object of devotion. It is the embodiment of the Law of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, expressing the life-state of Buddhahood, which all people inherently possess. Go means worthy of honor and honzon means an object of fundamental respect.

Note from James Gore:
Todays encouragement included words that would be considered confusing, so I also provided definitions of those words. As always feel free to ask me ANYTHING.
