Re: lockdowns on Nichiren site .

The lack of ability to maintain decorum is a compound phenomenon. More importantly there lies a really interesting rationale that exists here. The internet isn't "real" yet the efforts to moderate Buddhism (not just here) is arduous. :anjali: stopped reading your post here.. why...no one is remotel...

Re: lack of faith

You would need to feel Shakyamuni’s connection present in you Minobu. We believe that Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo is the Eternal Buddha Lord Sakyamuni Buddha.. When we chant we might not feel it but you are melding with Eternal Buddha Lord Sakyamuni Buddha . Even the most defiled sentient whilst chanting is ...

lack of faith

I think the problem with the Nichiren members is a lack of faith. case in point: christians The whole christian thing is very hard to believe...one god one chance at eternal life or hell..no real reasoning on what it's all about and why....so they struggle. And they sometimes take to the streets scr...

Re: lockdowns on Nichiren site .

The only tools a moderator has is to lock a topic, delete a post or request banning a member. I agree that a forum full of locked posts doesn't look very nice, but what is worse is page after page of nasty, divisive sniping. The Nichiren forum is notorious for this, now is the time to stop. By all ...

lockdowns on Nichiren site .

Everything i wanted i got.. Yeah, but you're a wild eyed warlock. That's only partly a joke. You are a type that tapped into something back when the world was going through a wilder, open phase.

Re: Not getting results - what to do !

Also priests are human and i've had a few bad experiences from a couple of shoshu priests...organizations are not the answer... Nichiren Shonin created 6 senior High Priests for a Reason...that being it's not about a certain priest or temple ...take the knowledge ...and do yourself a favour rely on ...

Re: Not getting results - what to do !

Contact a Nichiren Shoshu temple and learn to practice true Buddhism I was just thinking about High Priest Nittatsu Shonin... As you know i worry about signatures of High Priests...for we end up developing their attributes as well...careful what you MyoHo RenGe Kyo to.. anyway He put a special pray...

Well im from the school of thought if you develop you can accomplish anything... What do you think?

Re: Buddha Means Life!

Also this whole Buddha is Life ....to each his own. Why did Nichiren Shonin not teach this, or The Eternal Buddha Lord Sakyamuni Buddha ? My opinion , edit Actually they did. The fact that it appears he did not underlines the ignorance of those who profess knowledge regarding Nichiren's and Shakyam...

How you used my bit of sarcasm about prison awakenings to segue into your post is a huge tell . Tell of what? That your derogatory statement about Toda is inappropriate in an SGI sub forum?

. For Toda, the death of his mentor at the hands of the militarist authorities was an outrageous crime, which he could never forgive or forget.

Re: Buddha Means Life!

so i was under the impression that ksana is the amount of time between thought moments. I believe it is referred to as Rigpa . Dzogchen and MahaMudra meditators experience it. It is like a void between thought moments. I believe also this is the emptiness that Dzogchen teaches , different from Sunya...

Ichinen Sanzen is a view.

Re: Buddha Means Life!

Don't read so much into it. Toda, based on his prison awakening, took a loose interpretation of a term and ran with it. Built a religion out of it. It doesn't hold up to analysis. Its a poetic way to convey some aspects of the term, but falls short beyond that. The actual term that gets translated ...

When you are reborn does it come back ? this might sound odd but when you are reborn is the Buddha Nature you get a new one or used.. So many questions... Buddha is Life.... it t...
