Haven't posted here in a while...

Post by bcol01 »

Hello everyone! I haven't posted anything in a while but yesterday I converted to Honmon Butsuryu Shu. So far, from all I've learned, it's been an incredible experience and my priest is being very helpful. He even shipped me a Gohonzon and juzu beads for free, which is more than awesome. I hope you are all well and you're in my prayers. NMRK

Glad to hear these news and I definetly rejoice! Would you care to share about that school for us who are not at all familiar?

Congrats.

I don't know a lot about HBS, but I believe they chant the Odaimoku exclusively (no sutra recitation) and focus their study on chapters 15-22 of the Lotus Sutra.

Please let us know about your conversion.

What does it mean to have converted?
What reason to convert?

Thanks

I have several articles on the HBS. Contact me if you are interested in reading them. One is an essay by a Kempon Hokke priest. Please understand that I am not a fan of any Nichiren sect or organization since they all deviate more or less from the Lotus Sutra and writings of Nichiren.

They do excellent social work and interfaith dialogue here in Brazil! Congratulations!
