I just had an awful thought. I don’t think Nichiren Buddhism will survive. Very few people on this planet know anything of Nichiren. Why are the Nichiren sects declining in membership? My daughter was listening to a song with the lyric “It’s always darkest before the dawn,” but it should have been “Winter never fails to turn to Spring.” The song was about not giving up. Then I thought about the lame SGI songs we have. And then… no one writes songs about Nichiren. Do we not have passion? Do we not care enough? Wouldn’t songs or good poetry or a great novel be a way to introduce people to Nichiren?
Question — Why don’t we write songs, poems, stories about Nichiren Buddhism?
