Nichiren Buddhism and the Concept of God and the Mystic Law

Nichiren Buddhism and the Concept of God and the Mystic Law.



Do Nichiren Buddhists believe in God? What are Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and the Mystic Law? What about the three devils from within and the one devil from without? Listen to Rosemarie J. Ferrer and Bob Holmes, SGI members, ponder these topics on WWW.I-NETRADIO.COM  on Sat. and Sun. Sept 28 and 29 at 11 AM and 2 and 8 PM NY time and 7 PM and 10 Moscow


What is God?

Is it the being pictured on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel?

To me, God is a force that is all around me

Giving me a conscience

The free will to think for myself

A self-determination

The ability to make choices

Hopefully good choices

But sometimes bad

A force that allows the sun to come up in the east

And set in the west

That provides for the rain and the sun

And the trees and the crops

The ability to sustain ourselves

This God subjects us to the vagaries of luck

Of time, place and circumstance

Never allowing us to predict or know the future with certainty

Never providing us with a true glimpse of what awaits us upon our deaths

This God keeps us guessing

Who put us here?

Why are we here?

What are we to do here?

Where are we going?

This God does not provide us with exact answers

But only philosophy

Upon death maybe we will find God

And this power will find us

Then we may know the answers

Who knows?
