Margaret Blaine is a nineteen year practitioner of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism which originated in the teachings of Shakamuni Buddha 2500 years ago. She has become a leader in the Nichiren Buddhist organization called the SGI-USA, the lay organization of Nichiren Buddhists in the United States. She works in the Pacific Northwest where she supports members in their practice and helps beginners learn how to practice. Margaret taught Nichiren Buddhism to newcomers in a prison for three years in Oregon and devotes herself to working with new people. She says, "I have a passion for working with new people and making this practical centuries-old way of life readily accessible to everyone. "I want to see each person be able to take charge of their life and become happy. In this way we'll be able to reduce suffering and build peace in the world. Part of what I love is that each person verifies for themselves whether the simple chanting practice taught by Nichiren Buddhists produces results in their lives." She has written a book for new people, Your Path to Unshakeable Happiness. She speaks on Nichiren Buddhism and has a website www.margaretblaine.com. Margaret is married and has three children, and two stepchildren. She has three grandchildren. She has four grandchildren and eight great grandchildren by her marriage.

Great guide for new and experienced Nichiren Buddhist practitioners 2 maggio 2013
Di Claudia - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I didn't expect to love this book so much. It was a pleasant read, basic, yet explained with great clarity how one goes about changing karma. The story was, for me, an authentic representation of a difficult life situation in which the protagonist chose to take a long range view and take steps to really examine her life. Her clarity about the cause of her "difficulties" led her to do a 90 day experiment and begin to chant and take action for her happiness. Thanks, Margaret. A truly inspiring book!

A Wonderful Read! 21 luglio 2013
Di Ste.Joan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
When my friend bought me this book I thought it would be a hard read for me since I knew nothing about our Buddha natures. Ms. Blaine wrote her book in a brilliant format, telling a story of a woman whose life was out of control, then in the same Chapter Ms. Blaine explains how the main character is changing and why. She explains the wonderful way chanting for our goals and wishes gives us the power to receive our goals. She offers the reader a way to do a 90 day scientific challenge to prove to each of us that we are in charge of our lives by using the very simple tool of chanting for our goals. After the 90 day scientific challenge we will either believe or not. Read this book and decide for yourself if you want to change your life's circumstances. It is a very worthwhile read. Jaime.

Thank you for writing the book!! 9 aprile 2013

I think this a great book for everyone who is starting to learn about Nichiren Buddhism, or just for anyone who wants to expand their horizons and learn more about self-knowledge, emotional strength and using power of meditation and chanting to advance inner potential. Easy and interesting read. This book is a great guide for beginners; for me it was a trustful source as well, since I personally know the author and see how it has been working for her. The author herself and her book inspired me to explore and learn more about the practice and to become a practitioner myself.

Extremely accessible - much better than anything else out there 19 giugno 2014
Di JLH - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I've been curious about Nichiren Buddhism for a while, and have been slowly starting to read things about it, blogs on the internet, other e-books, etc. Most of them are weighed down with the details of the teachings, and they are not very accessible or practical - they're very abstract, and it's hard to see how the teachings dovetail with your day to day life.

Not so with this book. It opens with the story of a woman who learns about it and starts to incorporate it in her life, and as she encounters various challenges, the book shows how chanting helps her overcome them. The chapters are interspersed with helpful advice about how to incorporate the practice. There are even some chapters that deal with other characters in the book. I found the story of Nancy extremely helpful in showing how the practice works, day to day, especially for a beginner like myself. It also made the book much more interesting and readable - I wanted to see what happened to Nancy and Doug!

I also loved the spirit and tone in which this book was written. It's never condescending or "talking head." You can tell that the author genuinely wanted to share how the practice can help people with challenges in their lives, and rather than rely on faith, she challenges you, too, to try it in your own life and see whether it helps. I'm taking on that challenge now and looking forward to how it works out!

If you want a book that will go into the details and history of Nichiren philosophy, this is not for you. But if you want a book that will introduce you, in the most engaging way possible, to Nichiren Buddhism and how to go about chanting, this is definitely the best read I've seen out there.

Shopping for a new religion or practice? 23 dicembre 2014

Then this book will fit the bill regarding SGI (Soka Gakkai International) Nichiren Buddhism. Now for the disclaimer. As of this review, I'm not a member, past or present, of SGI. This review is about the book, not about SGI. From what I understand, SGI was once a part of Nichiren Shoshu and at one point was excommunicated. And then there's Nichiren Shu. For a good overview of Nichiren Buddhist practice in that branch, I highly recommend "Lotus Sutra Practice Guide" by Ryusho Jeffus. In it he has reading assignments in the Lotus Sutra (Murano or Reeves translation) as well as having you recite part of the 16th Chapter, the Life Span Chapter, which is the 2nd half of Gongyo practice. "Gongyo: The Liturgy of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism" by Sokkai Girl is a good resource too.

What I really liked about "Your Path to Unshakeable Happiness" was the use of story telling of how Nancy, the protagonist, went from her life being in a submissive position in her relationship with an alcoholic to being able to fend for herself. In some ways this story echoes Tina Turner's experience when she found SGI Buddhism. Of course, chanting Nam(u) Myoho Renge Kyo repeatedly isn't the only way to bring about positive change in one's life, but the author shows the methods of HOW to manifest that as well as what practices to avoid, such as wanting to get rid of something or trying to have other people change or do your bidding. I find it very interesting how the protagonist was advised to chant for both protection from someone and happiness for the same person at the same time. What I also found interesting was that Nancy was getting insights from her chanting practice. That's also possible with quiet meditation where you allow random thoughts to come into your head. Different methods. In Ireland and Scotland poets would subjugate themselves to sensory deprivation to come up with verses.

As a movement I find SGI very interesting. Yes, there are other Nichiren Buddhist sects, but SGI is the most widespread worldwide. That doesn't particularly make an organization "better", but it does make it much more accessible to a much greater number of people. The next book I plan to read on SGI is "Waking the Buddha: How the Most Dynamic and Empowering Buddhist Movement in History Is Changing Our Concept of Religion" by Clark Strand.
