About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
Hi there everyone, my name is Terry

I started to chant in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean 39 years ago during my first trip away as a member of the navy. A few weeks after that, we docked in Cape Town, South Africa, where I witnessed first hand the atrocity of apartheid and realized the real meaning of those strange two new word’s I'd learnt - "Kosen Rufu", My life has never been the same since !

I received my Gohonzon a few years later after I left the navy when I settled in London

I've had some amazing experiences and benefits from this practice over the years as well my ups and downs, but always remember what the late great Richard (Dick) Causton, the first general director of the organization in the UK used to say:-

"Everything begins with a great morning gongyo!"

I'd really like to tender a great thanks to the people who've put this site together, it's a fantastic resource, and I’m really looking forward to making new friends around the globe, or as we used to say in the navy "hands across the sea mate !"

Your page seems to be coming along nicely. I wonder where the chatbox has disappeared to.I've been given a spare ticket for Mrs Takahashi's Study lecture at Taplow on Saturday. I will have to get up and get into town for 6am to get the train so I can get there for morning Gongyo at 10am. This challenge was given to me by my HQ chief this evening and I've decided to go.
