New Practitioners

Isn't it truly an amazing thing to have something so deep, so profound and so USEFUL to share with people.

Today I talked to my friends in California who just started chanting. It is amazing how deeply they understand that this practice of Chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo is, in fact, the TRUE lineage of Shakyamuni Buddha for the age we are living in RIGHT NOW.
It is mystifying because it is so EASY, and yet so HARD:

There are no rules of any kind
-no dietary rules
-no "path" rules
-no lifestyle rules
-EVERYONE is a Buddha
-we are all equal
-there are no "life lessons" to learn and relearn
-we are not here to master suffering, we practice to WIN in life!
-karma is changeable, chanting changes it
-there is no clergy of decision/rule makers
-we are all lay believers (not clergy)
-this is a Buddhism OF the people! for all, no one is left out
-It produces results - when you chant, your life connects with the mystic law of cause and effect, and you GET the effect...maybe not right away, but you will get it...

All you do is chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, connect with the fellowship of believers at sgi-usa.org, study the writings of Nichiren Daishonin and help others find out about chanting....and have the COURAGE to FACE YOUR LIFE. That's the hard part. That's why we practice together. We all help each other. Join us! And make your list of what you want to see happen. You ROCK!
