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. She loves to read, write, garden, do handwork, crocheting, beading and quilting. She works out in a gym and rides her bike.

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
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.
