  • Dan Pelly says:

    Ty for clarifying how fundamental darkness & devilsh functions vie to disrupt a practitioner every second . We sometimes when entrenched in them can’t see clearly , but when we use the sharp sword of faith & the Gohonzon we breakthrough every time & turn our poison into medicine . Which is exactly what I have done , and the more I succeed in helping others the more the devilish functions vie to disrupt . But they are no match for the Gohonzon & NMRK 🙏

    Thank You Margaret. I love your blogs and a life line as I am sole practitioner on St Helena island at the moment and battling illness and FD. I stopped chanting for a week and felt very down. Im back now amd aiming to chant with more focus and determination. I miss my district a lot!

  • Swara says:

  • Ana says:

    Thank you for your teaching. It makes so much cense the things you mentioned . I am alway sick I have a cough that does not goes away . I think I must do something to get rid of some negative feelings hoping I can cured my self. Thanks

  • ronald.ronbush says:

    Thank you for this because suddenly I’ve been feeling despair and I’ve been chanting consistently everyday. I wrote 2 goals. One is a financial goal and other is for Kosen Rufu. Today for some reason I’m feeling all this guilt around not visiting my family or I don’t have any friends, so ya I’m feeling lonely too. With covid still around we only have Zoom meetings and I’m also a recovering addict and it’s challenging to find a meeting online or a physical meeting, I’m at lose right now.

    Lastly can someone explain pursuing wealth and fame. Because I’ve been grinding it for the past 3 or 4 months to learn a new skill in marketing and make a living from it and that in it’s self is challenging. Can I chant about a financial goal without it being about wealth and fame.

    • Margaret Blaine says:

      Hi Ron,
      Of course you can. Chant for exactly what you want.

      Hi Ron,
      Of course you can. Just chant for what you want.

  • Ritika says:’s great to listen to your blogs. Am applying the teachings.Right now am facing huge financial karma and health Karma.My son has Rickets. Confused about my career.
    Need a guidance from you.

  • Sue says:

    I have read this several times before and once again, reading it has produced such value. Fear is to be transformed. Trust is to be developed. After nearly 28 years of practise, here I am again. Just as you thought you’d nailed it, it smacks you in the face again. More work to be done, using the present circumstances to fuel my rocket of faith.

  • Joe Rosso says:

    thank you

  • Marianne says:

    Thank you Margaret I am battling with 2 very different problems one of which I have been battling for over 2 years. I am becoming down because it is taking so long and I am not young and see my life drifting without ever being able to get resolution. I have watched your video and made notes and downloaded the transcript
    I am determined to turn this situation around
    The other problem is new but is resolvable but both are affecting my emotions so I have to work so hard to harness my emotions into positivity. Thank you
