Hi, everybody I have been diligently reading this site everyday and checking to see how many others are also. It gets about 1000 views per day. I needed to experience more from your writings and see if my experiences were on a parallel and how universal some things are. I also decided not to reply to individual comments but to what I see as universal issues. I am now going to provide mo

@doubtful I have read so much Nicheren theology that I am no longer clear about some of it. I read and read and then got to the point that I felt some of it was so absurb that it no longer mattered. Nichijew probably can define this better than any of the rest of us. I think the Nicheren declared himself a Buddha or maybe the Buddha. That in itself kind of floored me as the Buddha neve

@scaredtoleave You make my understanding of the first conflicts I had not so personal. It is the way they operate, but I consider it fraud. And I have watched enough to know there are real double standards as to whom it is applied. William Woollard is a British Journalist and documentary producer who has international standing and credibility. His book the Reluctant Buddhist is highly

@Rothhaus I think we probably have agreement that the power lies in Japan but the money is kept and transferred around from Santa Monica. I do not know if you have seen the Santa Monica complex.

Aaah, Rothaus, you ask good questions and I do two hour meditative walks before I settle down to bath and writing deep in the night. I spent this walk thinking these questions.

Does anyone know what time zone this board is in since the dates and time do not even come close to matching mine. Also is this board located outside the United States?

scaredtoleave, your post has inspired me to continue what I am doing, which to be truthful in some ways, is out of my comfort zone. Maybe that is true for many on this site and that this is the gift we are given here. Not only is it a safe place for expression but a place to seek and find understanding. Understanding is often the foundation for forgiveness especially the most difficult of all

Hello, everyone. I have been reading this site since December and feel I know many of you. This site gave me a blue print for dealing with SGI when they made me feel like I was going crazy. I am particularly grateful to Nichijew for some of the serious scholarly links he posted. I have read all of them, some more than once. Sunday I was called by someone about this site. We have talked ab
