I got tired of going to all those meetings miles and miles away, and certainly it may have helped me to get out of bed gonngyo Sunday mornings, but I wonder sometimes who made half the shit up. I have several degrees and have studied a host of different religions.
At the worst time of my life those who wished to protect their own positions gojgyo turned their backs and by example encouraged others to do so also. I have a great many positive experiences in SGI…such as a whole different perspective and attitude towards my marriage…creating s much more positive outcome….
SGI, is an organization made up of people humansas like any other religion or philosophical developed institution. And my life has changed because ive cut out abusers.

We of the SGi fight for life as we are and we will always continue our mission, our vow as Bodhisattvas of the Earth. Not my problema, guys.

I know for me personally, that would go a long way in believing it may be a cult. This cult organization brainwashing people that had life problems in order to claim more sggi and collect May contributions! I was a member for five years, but left four years ago.
The SGI could attract more members if it was more open about its activities, its aims and how it planned to get there. The true practice of Buddhism is one than anyone can engage in. A bodhisattva, by the way, is someone who has achieved enlightenment but opts to return to the world to help others achieve enlightenment.

I would pray with her. Those who practice it believe that the chant is “an influence at work in the metaphysical economy” and actually changes the force and action of karma. We were all local. My mom ran into an old friend and decided to give it a shot. I have a strong belief that everything you encounter in life has a significant meeting for whatever it is your life purpose is!!

Ultimately for me, the group was too closely knit for the lifestyle I lead so I chose to move on. Booj Jude November 30, at 3: They have, no doubt heard all of the reasons why they should join or stay, this sub is to show them the other side of the coin as perceived through the experiences of the originators of it.
