I started chanting when I was 3 years old , my dad had introduce Nichiren Buddhism to our family. At that time my brother was extremely sick and my dad could not find a stable job and was constantly away from the family to work.....my mum is a nurse and she cycle to work...we have no car only bicycle. and we stayed in a wooden house. Since we started chanting, we have received tremendous good fortune. Slowly all our families and cousins and uncles are interested in what we are doing. I am currently practising Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism in Sydney Olympic Park with my husband. Hope to meet wonderful people to share our experiences. thank you :)

Congratulations! I am happy to hear that you will be a mother soon.
Please chant more daimoku and have more rest. Cheers.
"Easy Delivery of a Fortune Child"
You will surely bear a jewel of a child who is going to inherit the seed for the propagation of the Lotus Sutra. I wholeheartedly congratulate you. The child is the one who will inherit both your physical and spiritual aspects. How could you possibly suffer a prolonged labor? I expect that the child will be born quickly. If you take this
medicine, there can be no doubt. Even the darkness becomes bright when a lantern is lit, and even muddy water becomes clear when the moon shines on it. (WND,pg 186) 019_0186.pdf
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.
