Deep Sense of Gratitude Towards My Parents, My Mentor, and the Mystic Law

By Mavis Tan (Distrist 3, Sengkang Central Chapter, Sengkang Zone, SSA), 10th April 2009

It’s my 24th birthday today. While I received numerous birthday wishes, I feel a deep sense of gratitude for my parents, my mentor Ikeda Sensei, and Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism. I would not have lived till today if not for this wonderful practice.

When I was 8 months old, my mother noticed patches of bruises on my body although I did not fall or injure myself. My parents took me to the doctor, and after a blood test, the doctor found that I was suffering from a blood disorder which caused my platelet count to be extremely low and my condition was life-threatening. My parents do not remember the name of the disorder, but it should be Thrombocytopenia. My parents were shocked because this form of blood disorder should be hereditary and they had no history of blood disorders. I was the youngest patient then in Singapore to be suffering from this blood disorder, and the doctor said that if I did not receive treatment in the US as soon as possible, I may die anytime due to internal bleeding because my blood could not clot.



A powerful testimonial by Aoki Masao

This experience is the result of chanting vigorous daimoku and reading Ikeda sensei’s guidance over and over again.. It is a life drama full of joy that, without the support and mercy of my wife, family, siblings and comrades in faith will not be born. It is definitely not an experience of my own, but the common joy I share with my comrades.

In Sensei’s guidance, he says ‘please accumulate good fortune and advance bravely by experiencing the greatness of Buddhism yourself and so by telling that to others’. During these six months, I have nearly experienced death and have realized therefore the greatness of the Gohonzon, the importance of gratitude towards Ikeda sensei and the importance of life. No matter what happens, chant Daimoku. Pray earnestly for the sake of Kosen-Rufu. I think its is wonderful being a member of Soka Gakkai.
