"SGI is not Buddhism any more, if it ever was"
"I'm sure you'll get good answers here, but as the sister of someone who has been a member since her suicide attempt in 1967 (SGI is opportunistic and pursues anyone going through a vulnerable period, as you indicated you were), I suggest you get out while the getting is good. SGI is not Buddhism any more, if it ever was: It's a cult. My sister is a shell of a person with no interests, hobbies, or activities outside chanting and meetings. She never married, though I realize some members do, and is looking at a boring old age, esp. once she can no longer drive to meetings, meetings, meetings.
You are wise to look before you leap." -- Person on Reddit
