When I lived in Washington state and was going to school I met this woman who introduced me to Nichiren Buddhism. Basically it's a Buddhist (discipline? not sure if that's the right word)--as opposed to Zen, etc--that involves chanting in order to manifest your desires in life and bring joy to yourself and others. I attended several of the weekly meetings that their local SGI (Soka Gokkai International-an organization that promotes this form of buddhism) held. I eventually stopped going because they were being pushy and I just didn't feel comfortable with that. Also I was a strong Christian at that time.. Long story short my faith has weakened of late, and I'm thinking back to how things got so much better in a very short time when I started chanting. And I've heard a lot of stories from other people to make me think this is real. I'm going to start chanting again for some things I need in my life.. So what about you guys? Does anyone practice Nichiren Buddhism and how has it changed your life?
