"My wife says since she has been praying to the Denpo Gohonzon she has never been happier even though she has been cut off from the community. It just confirms how the joy of the Law is so much greater than the joy of Group Dynamics that's here today and gone tomorrow. Just before we enshrined the Gohonzon my 2 daughters 25 and 22 were going to leave home, and my 20 year old son had already left, now they are all at home and everybody's lives are improving as in work, study and relationships
There is a peace and deep joy that permeates throughout the household that wasn't here before.
I have the Shutei (Beautiful Gohonzon) in my bedroom and the Denpo is in the lounge room. Gakkai members who have dared to visit us have seen them and all have been so impressed that they have now enshrined them in their homes, which has created a big stir witthin the SGI community, as word and mouth/ emails Facebook etc travel like fire.
Since Google recommended me to your blog, I feel like the legendary Phoenix that has risen from the ashes and is now soaring through the sky of eternal freedom. And I have now read all the NST Gosho's from 2 - 7 and am now reading the Burton Watson translation of the Lotus Sutra but at the same time being mindful of what you have said about them, and what I intuitively know about the errors of there ways
Thanks for leading Awareness campaign against the manipulators of Nichiren Buddhism. It has given many people who have been suffering in isolation from the oppression of these organisations a voice and hope when they realize that it isn't just ME who has been experiencing these problems
My wife is reading blogs from Japan everyday. She says, "There are so many heart breaking stories of depressed members that have committed suicide and a terrible dysfunction that is going on in families and society.
Soka Gakkai members who have started doubting the organisation have gone on to doubting Nichiren Buddhism all together and are now having a major identity crisis. It's only a matter of time before this starts happening in a big way throughout the rest of the world like it is in Japan . This blog also helps pick up some of the broken damaged pieces
There has never been a time when the need has become so great for people to know the real message of Shakyamuni Buddha, Nichiren Daishonin that is based on the Lotus Sutra"
