I began practicing Nichiren Buddhism because I wanted to find out what was missing in my life. I had been living in London for almost 10 years and still didn't feel very fulfilled in my career and my general surroundings.
I came across this practice of chanting nam myoho renge kyo from a friend. I went along to a SGI meeting and heard the chanting for the first time.
I found it strange at first and felt really out of place. What were these strange words? Why was everyone sitting facing this box? What was the box? Is this a cult? What am I doing here?
All these questions were racing through my head.
A friend lent me a copy of this book some time later and it answered most of my questions.
