Samsara is not afraid of losing you... you have been its devotee for a very long time and does not suspect that you are divorcing it.

As cool as a lotus pond
Its ground covered in pearls and silver dust
May your days be filled with bliss
Refreshed by the dharma

(...) "The largest-scale New Religion disaster-response is being coordinated by Soka Gakkai, which claims 8.27 million households in Japan, including many thousands of adherents in the disaster-stricken region. The day after the earthquake, Soka Gakkai shut down regular operations at its massive headquarters in Shinanomachi, central Tokyo, and set its thousands of employees and ordinary member volunteers to work on relief efforts.

Staff members who ordinarily run the administrative headquarters and publish the daily newspaper Seikyo Shinbun are gathering food, blankets, portable toilets, and other supplies, which they are transporting north to the disaster area. Soka Gakkai has opened its Culture Centers to refugees; a Gakkai employee I was in touch with over email informed me that members of its Young Men’s and Young Women’s Divisions are “working without rest and without sleep” to help refugees, regardless of their religious affiliation. There is no doubt that members of Soka Gakkai view this disaster as a chance to gain new converts to their faith; but there is little reason to doubt the absolute sincerity of the many thousands of Gakkai volunteers who are seeking to help."

I received my gohonzin 12/87 and had been chanting to it ever since.  Chanting nam myoho renge kyo grounds me in meditation and prayer.  My life has been improving over the years and I am gaining more self confidence.  I still have ways to go.

My father praticed Nichiren's Buddhism the year before his death and it helps him to maintain more Peace in himself.

Every pratice which helps us to find who we really are is a gift for humanity.

Thanks for shating so much with all of us, Eva.

Love and Peace for all Beings.
