A very interesting book for anyone intersted in how the buddhist philosophy and practice presented by the International Soka Movement (SGI) can be useful in everyday life, and at the same time how the growth of each individual, based on this philosphy, can redirect the society toward a more humanistic way of life.
Written by a non-member, the book is also a good opportunity for members of this movement - as I am since 25 years - to learn from somoene with a fresh new look, and to realize that, as it is said in the underlying title, it deals with a new conception of what religion has to be to stay at the service of people (and not the opposite, as it is so many tims the case !).
As a conclusion, I must add that it is very easy to read and that you don't need any specific skills to understand it !
Enjoy !

Quite a good job 17 mai 2014
Par barbara goodwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am a Nichiren Buddhist, probably like so many others who bought the book. I was amazed at the author's profound understanding of the Nichiren Buddhism. For someone who doesn't practice this philosophy he did quite a good job of explaining it. The deeper elements were missing but then I had to keep reminding myself that since he doesn't practice it, there would be limits to his understanding. I think the one thing that stood out was when he mentioned that different people have said to him that Nichiren
Buddhist "isn't really a religion". I'm surprised that he didn't clarify that by "religion" most people mean a "God" outside of themselves; whereas this Buddhism believes that the "god" is within....that we are the Buddha. He did speak of personal responsibility for changing lives without mentioning begging some exterior being for help. He sort of danced around the issue perhaps not wanting to offend anyone that we don't believe that a "God" exists. However he did a mighty job and I was impressed. And in fact I DID learn new things.

Deeply inspiring!! 28 mars 2014
Par Ethan Gelbaum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Having read essays by Clark Strand previously, I was really looking forward to reading his book, "Waking the Buddha". It was even more engaging than I imagined and I read it in only one sitting. Mr. Strand's accounts of the fearlessness of the first three Soka Gakkai Presidents, Tsunesaburo Makiguchi, Josei Toda and Daisaku Ikeda, deeply inspired me and re-ignited a fighting spirit in my own life.

The extaordinary SGI movement so eloquently explained! 3 avril 2014
Par Michael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What a great book...thank you Mr. Clark Strand! I was one of those baby boomers who delved into Buddhism after the social turbulence of the sixties...ricocheting from transcendental meditation to New Thought and eventually becoming a student of the Theravada. Always a seeker...but never completely satisfied. Meanwhile, the world became darker as human beings continue to wage war with one another and destroy nature. One day I was presented with a card that had Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo inscribed on it. It sat on my desk for a few years but I eventually researched, studied, and embraced this practice. It transformed my life!

This book explains the SGI movement and its vision for the world to experience lasting peace and security through humanity's embrace of the humanistic principles of Buddhism. Nichiren Buddhism is practical Buddhism. Progress in your practice leads to changes within you. These changes are always marked by concurrent changes in your environment, which mirrors your inner life. This is Cause and Effect. Faith in Nichiren Buddhism is constantly directed toward transforming reality.

A gushing, self-centered opinion piece 4 juillet 2014
Par Dan Dewey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book seems to have two purposes: the first and last sections describe and extol the SGI's "new paradigm for religious practice" (p. 173), while the middle three sections describe the historical phases of the organization and the successive SG(I) presidents. I feel that Strand fails in both of these purposes, largely because he mostly provides a selection of his own uncritical opinions and observations with a smattering of facts, and as reviewer JRJ pointed out, this is all given without references or even a bibliography. By way of disclosure I am an SGI-USA member and have been since 1987.

There are better sources that give the canonical history of the SGI including web pages, e.g., http://www.joseitoda.org/ and books. The book "Makiguchi: The Value Creator" by D.M.Bethel describes first SG President Makiguchi's life in inspiring detail. Strand does acknowledge the book "The Human Revolution" by Daisaku Ikeda, describing it as a "mammoth work"; certainly it is large but at just under 2000 pages it is still a bit smaller than the Harry Potter series. A combination of the historical sections of these two books might be a more useful publication for the Middleway Press to issue.

As a long-time SGI-USA member I feel compelled to apologize to other religious, spiritual and humanistic groups for the unwarranted gushing Strand displays, e.g., "[SGI] is Buddhism taken as far as Buddhism -- or for that matter, any religion -- can go."(p.25) Perhaps Strand can speak with authority to a comparison of SGI and other Buddhist groups that he is familiar with. However, I do not think that he can accurately speak for "religion itself". I believe that the SGI is not perfect and still has further "ongoing spiritual evolution" to accomplish which Strand does not seem to look for or see. There are practices the SGI could learn from other groups and organizations, for example, implementing a more democratic organizational structure as done by the Friends/Quakers, see https://www.afsc.org/testimonies/decision-making .

In short, for someone who is versed in the SGI's history and has experience with the current organizational practices, this book might provide `a stimulating read'; but for those who are new to or learning about the SGI I feel this book presents too little concrete information with too much Strand-ification.

Waking The Buddha by Clark Strand 1 juin 2014
Par Adrian W. Hladky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is one of the best books on the Soka Gakkai in USA and on Nichiren Buddhism out there today. as a 30+ year practitioner, I highly recommend it. The author thoroughly researched the subject and has presented an informed objective view that accurately portrays the largest and most diverse Buddhist lay organization on the planet. For Buddhism to be relevant to this day and age, to be truly contemporary and accessible to the widest and most diverse population is a matter of utmost importance to the survival of humanity and our wonderful home, planet Earth. Nichiren Buddhism has impacted the lives of over 12 million people around the world and transformed people at the very core revealing a way of life of unsurpassed happiness for those who practice it and their environments.This is the true purpose of the appearance of the historical Buddha, Shakyamuni and is based on the Lotus Sutra which he taught as the essence of Buddhism. I am eternally grateful to Mr. Strand, a practitioner of many spiritual paths, a former zen monk and a dedicated journalist for his courageous and very well written work. It is my greatest desire that this book finds it's way into the hands of countless people and exposes them to the Soka Gakkai, it's three founding presidents Makiguchi, Toda and Ikeda and the Buddhism of the Sun - Nichiren Buddhism. Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. Also recommended: Unlocking the Mysteries of Birth and Death by Daisaku Ikeda, The Buddha in Your Mirror by Ted Morino, Greg Martin and Woody Hochswender and The Buddha in Your Rearveiw Mirror by Woody Hochswender.
