What I Believe: Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism

Thursday, May 10, 2018

Practitioners of the Buddhist and Hindu belief systems share their beliefs.

Ryan Cuevas practices Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism with the Soka Gakkai International manager. Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo is the chant that he practices, and while in his youth, he failed to grasp its meaning.  However, in 2010 after an opportunity to attend a festival in Chicago and hear multiple experiences, he elected to take his practice seriously and has not looked back. Through this practice, he is able to understand deep compassion, the karmic ties in his life, and the limitless potential that he possesses. Through various meetings and observing proof in his own life, Ryan was inspired to encourage other members to maintain their practice. The Soka Gakkai International stands for peace and respecting the dignity of human life, based upon on Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism and the goal of assisting all human beings to attain their inner potential and transform lives.
