I'm not sure what to say here. I guest we could discuss his writtings. Share about when he is speaking somewhere. Share discoveries on the web of recordings on video and audio of him. We could gather at set times and listen together. After awhile we could set up a room on PalTalk and join together after a teaching and talk about it.

Hey:


I applaud your efforts.  I am already a follower of a great mentor of the Dharma within the vehicle set forth by Nichiren and today's Nichiren - SGI global Lotus Buddhist movement.  We have a really wonderful community of highly active and dynamic members - now everywhere-  where all are enabled to play a leadership role within their own spheres of experience and ever growing ability.


I have great respect for TNH and his spiritual leadership as I do for all people who strive and endeavor to make the world a land where Buddha's (awakened beings) dwell everywhere.


Best of the Best in your pursuit and practice of the Buddha way.

I am a Zen Buddhist however Ive been going to Buddhist classes on 2nd Life of various Buddhist traditions( theres several different kinds there and as  shocking as this is I dont even know what kind of Buddhist class Im in sometimes but I do take classes there and). Anyways that being said I think if you got into second life tried to open on there you might find sucess I dont know maybe not.


 


However even though I cant promise to be here studying this particular type of Buddha Ill try and look at it if I find time. I tried opening up one of my own paltalk rooms once couldnt figure it out. If you wanted to just open one up for Buddha talk put it up here general chit chat between Buddhists for beliefnet and whomever let me I know I might join you. Put the adress up here thanks.Im gonna put up my thing at second life on another thread.

Thank you so much for your response. I'm very sorry it took so long to respond to you. I had a great deal of trouble signing in to my account and then I just got lazy. I'm grateful for your encouragement and time.


A flower for you the Buddha to be

Hello new friend,


I would like to understand more about what your saying. What is "Second Life" I'm sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I'm very grateful you took the time to post. 



A flower for you the Buddha to be.

Oh thats sweet thanks for the flower. Anyway 2nd Life is a virtual reality game which isnt a game. It has thousands of islands you can teleport your charector to and when you get there you live but if you want to play a game they have plenty of roleplaying games and also casinos where you can use your money there which is real money to gamble.


 


Anyways some says it like sims game but its not at all. Sims you just play by yourself you dont meet anyone else .In 2nd Life you take your charector go somewhere do something you have chat windows to talk to people microphone you can talk with and private chat windows you can IM people personally with.


 


People go there to do many things like some go for socializing. You can go to clubs and dance and meet people. Its halloween so theres alot of haunted houses there. I go because the religions have different setups there and there are several Buddhist  temples.


 


I go and take my charector and go to either Kannonji Zen retreat its pretty out there they have trees and mountains waterfalls its beautiful and peaceful. They have several places you can sit and meditate and have sittings someone leads starts with the bell and they send us a note card with the thought of the day about Buddha on it. We meditate while our Charector meditates they also have recording so you can listen to guided meditation.


 


I also go to Buddha Center where you can listen to classses and lectures about Buddha they have a beginning class Sunday mornings I can never wake up in time its good though Ive been once or twice.

Sister, thank you for everything you've shared. I don't have any plans to start up a darma chat on PalTalk, but I'm sure there are some there already.
