"A good guide to life" (Orlanda Bloom Square Meal Magazine)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism encourages the belief that, through its faith and practices, spiritual and material blessings and benefits can be available to everyone in this life. Needs can be met, and success achieved, not merely for oneself but for others (and the world) through dedication to the Lotus Sutra, a central teaching of Buddhism. It combines these personal objectives with the commitment to world peace, ecology and the easing of suffering, especially, AIDS. Attracting such well known followers as Jeff Banks, Sandie Shaw, Tina Turner and Roberto Baggio, Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism is rooted in a Buddhist tradition going back to the teachings of Nichiren in the 13th century, and is part of an international movement based in Japan.

HASH(0x9a5a0e10) étoiles sur 5 Buddhism IS for Daily Life 10 mai 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I first read The Buddha in Daily Life when I first started to practice the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin. It is a very thought out book and explains the concepts and meanings this particular sect of Buddhism in an easy-to-understand way.
Written so that each section and chapter can be read on their own, it is great to just read the book from start to finish. You will find that all the answers you have ever been looking for in Buddhist are answered - from Life after Death, Cause and Effect, The 10 Worlds, Karma and the history of Buddhism.
The best aspect of this book is the way it brings it back into normal daily living. It explains how we can all live as Buddhists, that we are all Buddhas, and shows that we can strive for the ultimate happiness in our own lives, through our own actions.
I recommend this book to everyone as a first stop in the understanding of True Buddhism.

HASH(0x9b309bc0) étoiles sur 5 A fantastic book 26 septembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is my favorite written introduction to Buddhism and one of my favorite references. I have been practicing Nicheren's Buddhism for fourteen years, and I think this book is both a clear explanation of Buddhism for someone who doesn't know much about it, and also wonderful for those who have been studying Buddhism for a while. The author did a fantastic job of clearly describing some deep concepts, and also the basics of Buddhist philosophy.

HASH(0x9a53ef48) étoiles sur 5 Excellent! 10 août 2001
Par Sarah Wellington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is one of my favorite Buddhist books. It makes complex Buddhist theories easily applicable to our daily lives - teaching that enlightenment is not an unreachable goal but a real state of life. It encourages us that true happiness is available to each of us, here and now, just as we are. I also highly recommended "Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom" by Taro Gold which contains many wonderful and rare quotations by the Buddhist teachers discussed in "The Buddha in Daily Life." Excellent!

HASH(0x9a53ee88) étoiles sur 5 Great Primer on Nichiren Buddhism 10 juillet 2009
Par S. A. Saribay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Reading this book was my first encounter with Nichiren Buddhism. I'm not a very religious person and approach everything with skepticism. But I have to say that the author does a real good job of trying to show the Western mind the logic underlying seemingly arbitrary practices such as chanting a certain foreign language phrase everyday. I'm not sure if I'm fully convinced (and there is some information on the internet implying that the SGI is a cult) but either way, the approach of Nichiren Buddhism is very impressive in its positivity and complexity. Thus, I'm pretty intrigued, want to study more, and would like to compare this with other kinds of Buddhism.

In my view, this book can very well serve as a primer on Nichiren Buddhism. It explains a lot of crucial concepts as plainly as possible. In the end, one really appreciates that Buddhism is not (just) a religion, but a way of life. However, the potential reader should not think that this is a book showing some simple ways in which you can practice Buddhism in daily life (such as a list of things you can do when you meet a "difficult" person, or you have an argument with your spouse, or other daily life problems). Instead, it is a book dedicated to explaining to the Western person what Nichiren Buddhism is, with many of its key concepts.

The book is well-written and a pleasant read. I can confidently recommend it for someone who has no idea about the topic.

HASH(0x9b309a94) étoiles sur 5 An insider's account: my in-depth review 30 novembre 2011
Par John L Murphy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
After evaluating three scholarly studies of Nichiren Buddhism, I compared this insider's version aimed at inquirers. Causton was Soka Gakkai's British leader; this revision was finished the year of his death, 1995. It revamps his 1989 "Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism: A Popular Introduction to the Worldwide Religious Movement That's Showing Millions How to Find Peace and Prosperity in Everyday Life." This merits mention, for the schism that separated the lay-led SGInt'l from priestly Shoshu control in Japan shifted how an affirmation of this pragmatic, ethically flexible, peace-promoting, diverse, international society would be conveyed to Western readers.

Bryan Wilson (quoted here as a sociologist of religion; this lacks paginated citations but lists a few references) analyzed what's now SGI-UK in "A Time to Chant" (1994, with Karel Dobbelaere) and in a 2000 collection edited (with David Machacek) as "Global Citizens." Wilson (who cited Causton's earlier ed.) found that British SGI adopts a freer, libertarian bent, as it's far from Japanese influence and considerably multicultural. Causton's rendering of SGI's neither analytical nor academic, in contrast with the two above (reviewed by me). His can be very philosophical and complex. He aims to convince seekers of SG's merits. This provides strengths and shortcomings for one seeking a balanced view of SGI. It's informed by members, not critics.

Strengths are its friendly tone, its use of vivid narratives by members of how they overcame difficulties, and its insights from such sources as Hardy, Donne, Dostoevsky, Einstein, Proust, Tolstoy, Wordsworth, Primo Levi, and Tom Wolfe. Good for savvy, clever, creative folks, curious about SGI's message. Causton assures that chanting as practice equals no "magical cure" (91; cf. 194), but a transforming power of "daimoku" (125) tapping into what's released as a "cosmic life-force" (193) sparks environmental and personal change. SGI uses this to prove how chanting creates, by greater energy and practical benefits, "value." A neutral observer may wonder if "success" comes by the chanter's compromise, prevarication, or coincidence, as Wilson & Dobbelaere aver; note p. 194 again. SGI believes a member will see the "conspicuous benefits."

This is not to diminish the sincerity and good works of this sometimes controversial movement. I wish to discuss what other {Amazon} reviews by those convinced have not: such a book is not by definition going to contain objections, for after all, it's aimed at persuasion. But some critical material might have strengthened it; one finds here a sharp, rapid tilt away from conventional Buddhism to Nichirenism. It displays a minimal foundation in earlier Buddhism before it reconstructs it with SGI's reformed "testament." Everyone can become enlightened; Nichiren supplants Shakyamuni as the latter-day Buddha model. Attributing radical changes in personal and communal success (see the subtitle of the original work) by chanting is the promise at the heart of SGI's interpretation of Nichiren's radical message which keeps only the Lotus Sutra as the "Middle Way" between latent and manifest effects that can literally alter the course of karma for the better.

This book's openness to rationalism and science enrich its contents, which can be challenging even as this simplifies Nichiren philosophy, itself no easy task. (Compare my review of a work aimed at a similar level on this subject, Daniel Montgomery's "Fire in the Lotus.") It elaborates karma intriguingly; it compares life and death, manifest and latent powers to a black cat, seen and not seen as it walks a "zebra crossing"! (138) I found its explication of the Ten Worlds doctrine sensible and engaging; SGI-UK's study guide online sums up this version of Causton's presentation. Ten Factors earn analogies to a knife, a lover's breakup, and a Van Gogh painting, for example. Also, its ties to physics, sleep research, and anger management prove valuable.

The modern vs. the ancient in light of what scholars say about the origins of the "Mystic Law," on the other hand, comes free from the critical examination that might be wished for by a reader looking for an intellectual context to accompany the inspirational one dominating here. The Lotus Sutra's understood by scholars to have been composed hundreds of years after Shakyamuni Buddha is said here to have delivered it as his definitive teaching. "Roughly 3,000 years ago" is given for the historical Buddha's career, further back than conventional estimations. This implies (255-6) wiggle room for periods of 500 years that comprise Nichiren chronology, but Causton never mentions those widely accepted birth-death ballpark figures for the Buddha.

I know that SG and Nichiren ease the impact of the historical Buddha, to elevate Nichiren and the Mystic Law, but those opening this book to find out about "Buddhism" as conventionally rendered may not glean much, compared to SGI's insistence on how Buddha-hood for all has been manifested by Nichiren and his followers since the 1200s. You understand, say, "Four Higher Powers" but "Four Noble Truths" gain a cursory mention; "Six Lower Worlds" earn abundant detail, but how they emerge via "Six Realms of Existence" gets little attention. (It's like reading about the Catholic Mass with barely a glance at a Passover Seder. Even in a defense of a denomination today, more credit of nonsectarian influences might be expected.)

If this sounds like quibbling, it's central in fact to how SGI leans towards a more exclusive, if globally accessible, "mission" with their Buddhism as the ultimate, definitive version. This book tends to blur dharma's historical context and denominational varieties; it's akin to a work introducing one to evangelical Lutherans which skims over the control of the medieval papacy, or how the 95 theses were composed. Daisaku Ikeda, revered SGI president, gains many quotes and serves as Causton's role model. Therefore, Causton provides as expected the "authorized" expression of SGI, but for those curious about what religious scholars have to say about the historical creation and textual evolution of the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren, his account will not offer much critical context. This book's meant to welcome one into SGI, not to dissect its ideological claims.

Therefore, if you want an introduction to SGI from one convinced, this is recommended. If you prefer an academic study, check out Montgomery for Nicherinism, and Wilson's co-authored two studies above.
