+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

There is a world of difference between the Daishonin Buddhism(Mahayana Buddhism and the MYSTIC LAW) and those which are practised by the Hinayana Buddhists which are practised predominantly by the Thais, Sri Lankans, Indo China and mainstream people.)

We are not the rolex wearing, gun toting Buddhists who lead a secular, double life as businessmen such as we heard from the THais...etc


The Mahayana tradition, in which Nichiren Buddhism is included, emphasizes the bodhisattva practice as the means toward the enlightenment of both oneself and others, in contrast to teachings which aim only at personal salvation.

Monastic Focus
After Shakyamuni's death, the Buddhist Order experienced several schisms, and eventually 18 or 20 schools formed, each of which developed its own interpretation of the sutras. As time passed, the monks of these schools tended to withdraw more and more from the lay community, devoting themselves to the practice of monastic precepts and the writing of doctrinal treatises.

Buddhism for All
Around the beginning of the first century of the Common Era, a new group of Buddhist believers emerged who were dissatisfied with what they saw as the self-complacency and monastic elitism of the earlier schools and aimed at the salvation of all people. They called their school of Buddhism Mahayana (great vehicle), meaning the teaching which can lead all people to enlightenment, and they criticized the earlier, traditional schools for seeking only personal enlightenment, labeling them Hinayana, or lesser vehicle. A Mahayana Buddhism arose as a reform movement seeking to restore the original spirit of Buddhism. The Lotus Sutra is one of the best known Mahayana Sutras.

The Lotus Sutra is one of the best known Mahayana Sutras.



The little known brethren to the Kama Sutra branch of these people, founded by the everpresent and omnipotent Ralph Sutra of the Georgetown Sutras.

It's all just blah blah blah to me... The decision to become a "better person" is UP TO YOU, and not because of a religion.

You don't need faith to have a kind heart.

It's hard to call Buddhism a religion in the traditional sense. It's more of a way of life. Praying to God, Allah, Yahweh gets you no where... it is life's practice that matters

The Mystic Law! Boy do I have a story to tell about this one. On a day like no other, the sun was glistening with white puffy clouds floating lazily in a surreal sky. Every breath hung heavy with tree sweat, sounds of life permeated the air and a curious vibe cut through like a knife. All of a sudden the clouds parted and a loud boom voice came through...

================================

There is a big flaw in your argument!!!!

If people brought up in a bad, poor environment, or due to genes and parental neglect can be changed so easily.....society will not have so much problems of delinquency, gangsters, ....et al

Your assertion is just an assertion or opinion. Opinions are a dime a dozen. .....like cock's hair...

Nah.....here's a cock hair ,,,,,,
