Selamat Datang!

I am not from the Nichiren-Shu but upon reading on Nichiren Daishonin life's and writings, I find him colorful, controversial, contrasting and knowledgeable on many aspects and things but at the end of the day, I regard his interpretation, teaching and practice as just another source for my studies on the Lotus Sutra... and I am a fan of the Odaimoku chanting and have seen some fabulous Youtube videos showing how the Gohonzon Mandala is constructed part by part.

Btw, in my country, there's only two Chapters (http://www.nichirenshumalaysia.org/) plus another one in a southern state although I have heard of one more in the Borneo side but not too sure and also am looking forward to a Japan trip this year, if all goes well, and I am planning to visit at least a temple or monastery of all major Japanese Buddhist lineages, including the Nichiren.

Oh yes, SGI is also around here but I will not expand on them here ... lol
