    Read it a few years ago, and whilst in hindsight it was a little life changing. At the time I remember it was a dense read. Very interesting but you knew if you put it down, game over.Quite a lot of eastern philosophy and the late Dick Causton has done a great job of showing how applicable Buddhism is in the everyday of the everyday person. Whether or not you want to start 'practising' or not, it is a deep read.

    This is definitely a book worth to read as it has an approach which makes more sense for us westerners, than other tough buddhism books. If it was not because the temple in London is miles away from my house in essex and I do not have a car, I would definitely go every week because this is the kind of Buddhism that match perfectly with me

    Enjoyable, inspirational, but only for SGI members (present/future followers of Nichiren Daishonin). I'm no longer a member, but I recall liking this book more than any of the [many] others that were given to me.

    Yet another gift from Leah. This book is wonderful and really is helping me to deepen my understanding of the practice of Buddhism.

    My all time favorite SGI-Nichiren Buddhism book in my 25 years of practice.I wish this would be rereleased. It IS difficult to find used copies. Recommend trying half.com and amazon.com.

    Not an easy read, too much information for someone who just started following this practice :)

    I read this book when it was initially published in the late 1980's It was then called something else, Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism. After the much publicised schism beetween SGI and its parent Buddist organisation its obviously had to be renamed. Personally it was the acrimony even hatred displayed on both sides that put me off the practise rather than the issues themselves. I met Dick Causton and belive he and SGI have done much to bring a spiritual dimension to many peoples that wouldn't otherwise have it, lets remember though Buddhism is a very wide ranging family beyond the answers offered in this book.

    I found this book extremely helpful in understanding the ethos of Nichiren Buddhism. Actually, it completely changed the way I experience daily life. It's quite practical in that it explains every aspect in separate chapters and also gives examples of people's experiences in relation to each aspect so the reader can empathise and understand on their own terms. I borrowed my copy from the library, but I frequently wish I owned my own copy because I often find myself wanting to go back to it in order to re-read parts of it for reference and guidance. Definitely recommend this book.

    LOVE this book! Very comprehensive for the beginning practitioner of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism! However, I like The Winning Life: An Introduction to Buddhist Practice even more for the quickest "manual" to getting started in the practice right away.

    First book I read about Buddhism and I think it handles well introducing the philosophy of Buddhism.Has some interesting ideas and concepts in it. Good thing about the book is that it concentrates on the philosophy and it is not so much of a book that wants to convert someone. Includes some crap like world peace and so on, but the philosophy gives nice food for thought.

    While the book explains the ideology of Buddhism from a practical, modern perspective quite well, it is very dogmatic in its unwavering position that Nichiren Daoshonin's Buddhism is the only true religion. This somehow turned me off from the book as a whole.

    If you read this, it means that you're open to philosophical stories, information, and ideas that may seem "far-fetched." I found the more I suspended any moments of disbelief, the more enjoyable a read it was. Then at the end I could reflect and think about what struck a chord with me.

    Great book, and a great introduction into the practice, though I caution taking your time, and taking notes. Even though I cannot get on board with the Ikeda-train, I'd easily recommend this to anyone interested. They just don't have to read the last couple of chapters.

    I have owned this book for awhile. It is an excellent book on the form of Buddhism practiced in the organization called the SGI. It is a good book for those practicing other forms of Buddhism too. I just purchased another one because my 1st copy is so worn.

    This is a very intense book. It is well written and gives useful analogies to help you understand the very deep theories and comments.I have found this very useful and will certainly make use of the index and use it as a reference book in the future.

    Abbastanza esplicativo ma penso che richieda ulteriori letture per approfondire il concetto dei mondi. D'altra parte, il buddismo di Nichiren si basa sulla pratica. Non mi �� piaciuta l'ultima parte, la nota storica, che ho trovato troppo sommaria e ingenua.

    Great book. It's one of those reads that I keep going back to as there is always something to gain from it in terms of understanding Nichiren Buddhism. It totally opens my life up.
