How to chant according to SGI senior leader Ted Morino and according to the Votary of the Lotus Sutra, Nichiren Daishonin


One might as well be practicing Tientai's Great Concentration and Insight, an impossible practice in this Latter Day, according to Nichiren.

How to Chant [Nichiren Daishonin]: "Simply chant Namu Myoho renge kyo and strive to attain the way"; and "Thus he states: 'Chant the Lotus Sutra with your ordinary distracted mind. You do not have to enter into a state of mental concentration. Whether sitting, standing, or walking, just fix your whole mind on the words of the Lotus Sutra.'”

  1. SGI leaders think they are wiser than Nichiren. Actually, they are more stupid than clams.

    1. Not all that Ted said is out of line

      "What the Daishonin does stress, however, is our attitude—the realization or conviction that we should have when chanting.
      He writes: “Shakyamuni Buddha who attained enlightenment countless kalpas ago, the Lotus Sutra that leads all people to Buddhahood, and we ordinary human beings are in no way different or separate from one another.
      To chant Myoho-renge-kyo with this realization is to inherit the ultimate Law of
      life and death” (The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, p. 216).

      He also explains: “You, yourself, are a Thus Come One who is originally
      enlightened and endowed with the three bodies. You should chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with this conviction” (WND, 299–300).

    2. I think Tim Janakos may have said this

      "I rescind, recant, renounce, denounce, destroy and uncreate all causal incarnations, causal incongruities, causal incarcerations, causal inculcations, causal incantations/incinerations AKA Nirvanas, and all self induced/self flagellating, causal realities that keep me thinking I need to hire Sansho Shima to fuck with me, in order for me to finally be fully willing to claim, own and acknowledge the Buddha of Absolute Freedom that I truly be, who is eternally endowed with all the supernatural powers of the thus-come and/or the thus-gone-ones, that is too fucking powerful for Sansho Shima to fuck with." - BJOTT FAAHC
