Profile Information

About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
Raised a Catholic, I was introduced to Nichiren Buddhism a couple of years ago, however, was not fully committed as I am now. I find practicing Buddhism to elevate the positive in my life and to help me overcome the negative. Being a self-actuated faith (no diety) has helped me to take responsibility for my actions and don't look to a higher power to fix or save me. I also try to raise my life condition in this lifetime rather than holding out for another existence, in this way I can achieve Buddhahood in my current state.

Still on the path to enlightenment! NAM-MYOHO-RENGE-KYO
