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.

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.
I've been a member of SGI since the 70s and it's as relevant for us"oldies" as it is for newly introduced
members(and non members) I so appreciate this author,as an author,and as a human being. I hope to meet her someday
I will share this book with many. (and encourage them to get their own) this ones mine forever!! Thank You Margaret
I'm sure I will be buying more copies to give to friends asking about Buddhism.
