Walmarts or a mom and pop pharmacy?...SGI or Nichiren's true Sangha?

A cold business oriented organization lacking true compassion or a warmhearted personalized experience in which minor rules can be broken for the sake of the patient? Try and buy a bottle of Lantus Insulin that costs $250.00 while only having $210 dollars at Walmart. The pharmacist will practically laugh in your face. At a mom and pop pharmacy, only have fifty dollars and more often than not, the pharmacist will work with you allowing you to pay it off when you have the money. A similar situation is found when joining a Nichiren group such as the multi-billion dollar religious corporation known as the Soka Gakkai as opposed to joining a small independent group of Nichiren practitioners who practice as the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren teach. During SGI so-called shakubuku campaigns, for example, new members are invariably forgotten or neglected for even newer members and potential converts. In our sangha of the Bodhisattvas of the Earth, there is no initial love bombing only to be forgotten once converted. There is a life long bond of camaraderie. friendship, and mutual respect based on the Law [not personalities] and there are no hard and fixed rules except to chant Namu Myoho renge kyo to the Gohonzon until the last moment of life.
