A Ship to Cross the Sea of Suffering – Part 1
It has been a long time but we are back with the first of a two part lecture on a letter written by Nichiren Daishonin called A Ship to Cross the Sea of Suffering. The lecture is based on SGI President Ikeda’s guidance in SGI Newsletter 8518 which was given in May this year.
Subjects we cover include:
- Connecting our hearts to those around us
- Who was Shiiji Shiro?
- See like Li Lou, hear like Shih K’uang
- Faith rooted in action
- Teaching others about Buddhism
- The voice does the Buddha’s work
- A single sentence or phrase
Karen reads a wonderful experience by Sue Davis from Essex in the UK. We also have some great music starting off with Smile by Robin Lukas (written by Barbara Pool). We also play Lucky Day by Stavia and $12.99 by Dave Potts from the Podsafe Music Network.
