The Mentor and Disciple spirit: My understanding (Part 2)

We discussed the importance of the mentor and disciple relationship in our previous article. Not sufficient certainly. There is a lot more to this topic. Having a clear understanding of this issue, we firmly believe, is something we cannot do without if we are to practice correctly the Daishonin’s Buddhism. Of course, this is just… Read More The Mentor and Disciple spirit: My understanding (Part 2)

Why can’t you just trust our top executives?

This is the reason why. We have two separate organisations in SGM, with different functions – the ‘faith organisation’ and the ‘secular organisation’. The faith is the one we are all familiar with and the chief responsibility is to promote kosen-rufu in Malaysia.

Every single day, without fail, I am chanting earnestly for their happiness. No matter what, they… Read More A few good men

Slander

Cathy, a good-natured, hardworking and sincere young woman, was tormented by slanderous comments that people were making about her. Depressed, she went to seek a senior, Harry, for encouragement. Needed to let her steam out and a shoulder to cry on. Harry lived a simple life, deep in the conrete jungle. After listening to Cathy, he said, ‘Let’s take a… Read More Slander
