Profile Information

About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
On again, off again, 4th year Med Student, practicing SGI Nichiren Buddhism for 24 years. Compose writngs/e-mails/Facebook posts and notes on various topics, including SGI, SGI-Related material, spirituality, Medical - both main stream and CAM, Avant Garde meds, and health. Interest in neurotransmitters, NMDA Antagonism, telomeres, Nootropics, neuropsychopharmacology. Also have a BA in Psych, a MA in counseling, and a course or 2 short of having a BS in Interdisciplinary science,"Pre-Med". Love animals, especially Big Dogs, Big Cats and Wolves.Love Hard Sci-Fi, Science, Astrophysics, Cosmology, Ancient and Medieval History. Love SGI Study. Love to Learn, am continually blown away by the Great Universe, the writings of Nichiren Daishonin, and Daisaku Ikeda.
Red Sox, Celtic, Buccaneer and GATOR fan. Always seeking good friends. Went from a Chapter leader in the mid-late 90's, to a general member, and now to a District leader. *Essential Point - A national leader recently said something to the effect that ultimately a leadership position is an illusion. Anyone who spreads and protects the Great,True Law is a leader! We all have the same potential for Buddhahood! I did a lot as a general member! Its all about ICHINEN!
Are you a member of SGI?

What Is Buddhism?

This originally was a SGI presentation I did in the late 90's. I am not sure of the exact number of Honorary degrees Daisaku Ikeda currently holds,"as the number is dynamic, and increases steadily", I am sure it is at least 274.

A Story about WINNING!

Posted on March 18, 2010 at 9:04pm 3 Comments

*** President Ikeda always shares quotes, stories, passages that support the teachings of Buddhism. No matter whether or not, the source is familiar with Nichiren Buddhism. This is one of many traits that distinguishes Sensei from other religious leaders. Consider his admiration for Goethe, Emerson, Dante, Hugo, and Ghandhi to mention a few. The story below was told by Napoleon Hill, who, in my strong opinion, is in similar rhythm with the teachings of Buddhism.…

OK, I had my meeting with my SGI-USA Central Territory leader.  He has confirmed with me SGI's definite interest in sponsoring and making SGIBuddhism.ning.com officially an affiliate of SGI.

This all new territory for SGI themselves and in the coming weeks they'll be working closely with me, and sometime in the near future after some paperwork is approved, hope to have a direct 'link' of our SGIBuddhism.ning.com site to the SGI-USA and Soka Gakkai websites itself.

So no more declarations on our site that it is NOT an official 'site' of the SGI, and you can tell your members & leaders that this IS an SGI site itself.

I didn't think this would happen so soon but it was my main goal when i (after I joined Chris Tinney's social network group which he created 3-4 yrs ago) first became its unofficial moderator to protect the site from anti-SGI members and make it an oasis safe for both members & their friends & family alike. So mission accomplished!...so far...eagerly looking forward to new developments as word of this site get around and our 7,000 plus members will be joined by so many more in the far & distant future.

 

best,

 

Dan
