I'm reposting here because this is specific to Nichiren Buddhism.
So, as we've discussed, it's okay in Nichiren schools to chant for material outcomes. If anyone would care to chant for me to be able to find a way to pay for college and complete my education, that would be greatly appreciated. I was panic striken all day, and just got done chanting and, no doubt about it, it does work. While chanting, I can feel the perspectives in my mind changing, all the positive thoughts that I need in order to keep going. It's almost like when in a panic state, only the negative thoughts come to mind. But when chanting, the negative is blocked out and only the positives come forward.
