Re: Can all people in our world come to enlightenment?

Theoretically or in reality?

In whose mind? one's own or everyone's mind?

When are we talking? Seconds from now or immeasurable Kalpa?

Where does the delineation in all these things occur?

Re: Knower: Self and non-self?

It’s rather direct contemplation...to know how such appearance comes about. Sixth Patriarch said originally there is no thing...whatever appearance rationalized to not be self doesn’t mean we are not deluded in dreams at night. I think this points to a state of meditative awareness that does not ha...

Re: A thought experiment concerning the Lotus sutra

The Real Aspect of the Gohonzon[/b Myō is the name given to the mystic nature of life, and hō, to its manifestations. Renge, which means lotus flower, is used to symbolize the wonder of this Law. If we understand that our life at this moment is myō, then we will also understand that our life at oth...

Re: Allergies

You mean because we are new to the US considering US is 400 /500 years old, and because they don’t have these trees elsewhere in the world? Maybe. It really is more complex. For example, air pollution effects development of humans from conception to death. Air pollution is a byproduct of industrial...

Re: Allergies

I am just making a point: species can adapt to certain environments to resist diseases. Science now! Why are we not adapting to resist allergies? I have no clue. We had adapted and then sharp ecological changes happened faster than we could adapt to them. The earth and mankind have changed drastica...

Re: Allergies

Well the usual thought is the local pollens cause allergy, but it’s not the body’s functionings are compromised? It's hypersensitivity. When the body encounters what it perceives as an allergen, it overreacts. I don’t mean to be provoking but people in the Western world live in clean environment. T...

Re: Allergies

Some people eat local honey This is true, but I'm guessing if I tried it there would be adverse effects. Potentially I is assumed the allergens will be low enough to be mild enough for subtle acclimatization. I am not advising this however. Follow your own advice and see an allergist. It was a mean...

Re: lockdowns on Nichiren site .

I think it is a great opportunity personally. When properly engaging the lotus one potential consequence is intense internal reaction. Regardless of who the effected party might be, propagating these teachings is not easy. However ideally there should be no emotional distortion. For me this really m...

as for mixing practices...it's all Buddhism...heck Nichiren is filled to the top with all that was Japanese Buddhism at the time...he knew it all... Sure but it really is a nuanced topic because yes he seeks to reconcile any potential path (immeasurable) for an individual to the lotus itself. Based...

But I'm working on it.
Depending on the type of allergy there might be reasonable means to address them. Some people eat local honey to address some pollen allergies. I don't know too much about particulars unfortunately.

Re: Not getting results - what to do !
