You know, I used to enjoy reading and ocassionally participating in this forum. I have a very difficult situation at home for which the SGI is at the forefront. Many of the people who have posted here since I joined have given me a great deal of insight into the organization and its destructive ways. They don't appear to be around much anymore. Recently, it seems most of the discussion concerns "how I can continue my practice without the SGI" or "how can we save Nicherin Buddhism from the SGI" with little discussion on the cult of SGI. This makes me uncomfortable participating here.
Anyhow, it's not my point to offend anyone just felt the need to state my concerns. I hope to see a return to what the forum was when it focused on "former cult members and affected families".
I was wondering if you are someone who has kept your Gohonzon. If so, is it still enshrined? I am just wondering because I know some people here have kept it up, and perhaps others have returned it. I don't know how long you were in the SGI. I was just curious to see if you are a person who has kept it, or returned it..as I go back and forth on what to do about this.
