My 3rd Year

Today, I celebrate my Gohonzon Birthday. Its been 3 years now since I became a Nichiren Buddhist and oh what a wonderful ride its been so far. It is true when they say that it is easy to begin but harder to continue. My Gohonzon was presented to me by the wonderful late Tim Dennis at the White Plains cultural center. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was so ready. I felt it in my bones. I felt like I was shot into the sun. I was beaming. I anxiously awaited the for the day to enshrine my Gohonzon. I was excited and went out and bought everything for my Butsudan. I could feel myself glowing. A new beginning, life, way, tools, friends, family, understanding and awareness. 

Thank you- Seleus Blelis

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Reeds driftin' on by
You know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Congrats for yor 3rd year and many more years to come.I have been practising since 1984 and will until i die.Once again never doubt the Gohonzon, all prayers will be answered.Sensei says-Whatever problems you may have, ultimately it was you who chose to have them. They exist solely in order for you to prove the power of the Mystic Law. If you truly understand this point, from the depths of your life, you will have no reason to fear problems. All you have to do is courageously challenge and overcome them with the power of faith. There is no obstacle or difficulty that cannot be surmounted with the power of faith
