What is the Gohonzon? (a mental conversation)

UN : What is the Gohonzon?

The Buddhas : It’s a matrix.

UN : What kind of a matrix?

The Buddhas : Where each chanting soul, each chanting soul’s each chant, is connected.

UN : How is this connection made?

The Buddhas : Through the principle of resonance.

UN : So each one’s chant has similar vibrational frequency, and all such vibrations intermingle and start swinging together?

The Buddhas : That’s not all. During the intermingling and swinging together, there’s huge give and take.

UN : Meaning?

The Buddhas : Surplusses nullify deficits in a flash. You’d be surprised at the level of surplus in this matrix.

UN : Where is the surplus coming from?

The Buddhas : Amongst those connected are also souls with mountains of good Karma. They give willingly of it without expecting return. Good Karma keeps flowing towards them because of their exemplary existence, so they know they’ll never be in deficit. Thus they keep giving and giving.

UN : So anyone connecting to the Gohonzon is sure to receive?

The Buddhas : As sure as there’s a sky above your head.

UN : Currently, there’s no place for a Gohonzon in my house, owing to my environment and circumstances.

The Buddhas : What do you need one for? It’s already in your mind, and now also in your heart. Just connect to it through sheer vibration. If and when your environment and circumstances change, even a physical Gohonzon will manifest. However, currently, just keep doing what you are doing.

UN : Thanks 🙂 .

The Buddhas : Bye.

So, What did You Notice?

The Buddhas : So, what did you notice?

UN : That after a chanting session, some kind of a joy starts to rise.

The Buddhas : And…

UN : It seems that the cells of the body are celebrating.

The Buddhas : Is it?

UN : Yes, and there are vibratory sounds in the head.

The Buddhas : Hmmm.

UN : There is extra force emanating from the forehead.

The Buddhas : What is your overall feeling?

UN : My problem has diminished.

The Buddhas : Smaller in size?

UN : Am thinking less about it. Am busy enjoying the good feeling in the body and mind.

The Buddhas : Lessened in threat value, then?

UN : I’m not scared to face it. The Karma has started to come to the fore, at accelerated speed, and my energy levels to tackle it have shot up. Issue is bothering me lesser and lesser as I keep chanting. 

The Buddhas : Not that you spend much time chanting towards resolution of your this issue…

UN : Others have bigger issues. Joy levels emanating later are higher when I chant for them.

The Buddhas : You noticed that, did you?

UN : Yes. I enjoy chanting for loved ones.

The Buddhas : Be a little careful about wattage please. 

UN : Wattage?

The Buddhas : Chant a wattage that the loved one is able to sustain.

UN : I see. I thing I understand what you are saying. 

The Buddhas : Good. Bye.
 

Did You Ask for Something Negative?

UN : Good session, huh?!

The Buddhas : There were good things about it.
 
UN : Let’s hear it from you. What was good about it?

The Buddhas : First the difficult part.

UN : The seven minutes I chanted for myself, yes, those were very intense, I gave it everything.

The Buddhas : There was so much energy being thrown into the Universe in those seven minutes. Was there negativity?

UN : I’ve been emotionally and monetarily massively cheated. All I asked was for the Karma to resolve with maximum ease and evolution.

The Buddhas : You didn’t ask for the offending parties to be punished, agreed, but your tone was so thunderous and intense, that we were wondering. 

UN : I feel about it emotionally and thunderously. Resolution with maximum ease and evolution are words that have come from you, in one of the recent logs.

The Buddhas : No negativity – that’s good, fine, let’s move on. We liked that almost 85-90% of the session was spent chanting for others. 

UN : I didn’t do it to please you.

The Buddhas : Tell us why you didn’t chant more for yourself, especially because you have been emotionally and monetarily cheated.

UN : It felt great chanting for others. I felt on top of the world. I felt I was moving and shaking the world. I forgot my own problems.

The Buddhas : And then you remembered them?

UN : When I did, I went in with a bang. I felt I had obtained a visa to chant for myself, after chanting for others for the majority of the session.

The Buddhas : The visa bit is a little ridiculous, such that we don’t know whether to laugh or to cry. 

UN : I know, chanting for others doesn’t give one a visa for anything. 

The Buddhas : However, you forgot about your own problems, at least for a while. Simultaneously, you remembered the problems of others.

UN : So?

The Buddhas : That stands out for us. We need to see more efforts like that. Alone that excuses any minor discrepancies we might have had with your session. 



 

When There’s a Prick, I Start to Chant

The Buddhas : There you are again.
UN : You got me there. I’m in pain. Thus my chanting intensifies.
The Buddhas : And you don’t chant as intensely when not in pain. 
UN : Yes. You got me there.
The Buddhas : Why exactly not? We want to know.
UN : When I’m in physical or mental pain, I wish to return to my normal asap. 
The Buddhas : Then you don’t hold back, is it? Why do you hold back when normal?
UN : When normal, I don’t wish to overdo. But I still do.
The Buddhas : Hmmm. Your chanting when in pain is 6 times in comparison. 
UN : You wish me to increase my chanting while normal?
The Buddhas : We’re just noting the discrepancy in the ratio. 
UN : Normal chanting brings Karma to the fore, to be dealt with. 
The Buddhas : And the happy Karma you take as if its your birthright…
UN : And the painful Karma makes me crib… and then go beserk chanting. 
The Buddhas : This going beserk and the cribbing part needs to be altered. 
UN : Meaning?
The Buddhas : Don’t waste time cribbing. 
UN : Fine. Then?
The Buddhas : Go straight to Gongyo and Daimoku. Lay out your issue. Then chant.
UN : I then get extra vigorous. I’m greedy for quick resolution. 
The Buddhas : Vigorous to the extent to falling ill is a fault. Greed and haste are faults too. 
UN : So I’ll chant with attenuation, without thinking of resolution?
The Buddhas : Chant for the Karma to play out with maximum ease and evolution. 
UN : And them move on with the additional strength coming from the evolution?
The Buddhas : Yes. Move on to bigger game. 
 

That’s Us Coming In

The Buddhas : That’s us coming in.

UN : What do you mean?

The Buddhas : You do provide us the means.

UN : The means for what?

The Buddhas : When you chant with your voice, we can latch on to your vibration better.

UN : I see. And then.

The Buddhas : We add, subtract, intermingle, soften, expose, extract, loosen, inject, what have you. 

UN : You do all this to what?

The Buddhas : To strands of Karma. Your Karma.

UN : Is it that easy?

The Buddhas : It’s not a question of easy. It’s a question of you giving us the means to do it or you not giving us the means to do so.

UN : Is that kind of interference allowed by universal law?

The Buddhas : It’s your Karma, it will play out. We’re looking to make it play out in the highest and the best way for you, whatever is in the realm of possibility. 

UN : So when I chant vocally, I give you the means?

The Buddhas : In an enhanced fashion. It becomes easy for us to fit. Make sure you roar the next time. 

Where’s the Happy Feeling? 

Can you guide me towards happiness?

Depends.

On what?

Not on what. Depends on you.

Me?

Yeah. 

How?

Because it’s got to come from inside.

Inside of me?

Yes. 

So how do I get it out?

It’s about attitudes, perception, satisfaction and involvement.

Involvement?

I’d even say engulfment.

Engulfment?

Yeah. Being in to your line of activity with heart and soul, such that you have no time to engage in or with any vibration that would stop your happiness from emerging. 

So it’s a kind of biochemistry, is it?

On the chemical level, yes. However, your body and mind need to get the groove right, to secrete that kind of biochemistry, again and again and again. 

And how’s that to be done?

When you’re into something, you forget about all the negatives, and you get into this zone. That’s when happiness emerges. 

So that’s it?

There are some minor details that one could add.

Like?

Happiness is infectious. Make others happy. Have happy smiling faces around you. Alone this magnetism will attract your happiness from inside of you, and it will emerge. 

What about all the sadness in the world? All the unhappy people? One comes face to face with such situations daily. 

Try and do something for some of the people you meet, so that they can see a way out of their predicament. The good Karma will go a long way to set the groove up inside of you. 

It’s that simple?

There’s no formula. The simplest things are also the most difficult ones, because one keeps chasing the complicated stuff. One likes sophistication. Meanwhile, the simple stuff gets washed under the table and one forgets about it. It just gathers dust, till one fine day, one asks the question.

Which question?

Am I happy?

Oh, that question…

Yes, that question is the trigger. The one that then wants so badly to be happy and remain happy, that’s the one who seeks guidance towards happiness. 

Like it’s happening to me here?

Yes, like it’s happening to you. 

Well, thanks for that, you’ve been a great help. 

No probs. Off with you now, I’ve got stuff to do. 

Bye.

Bye. 

Willing the Future

Thoughts have energy, right?

Of course. 

So if I think something hard enough, will it happen?

Depends.

Upon what?

Upon your thoughts being hard enough. 

Supposing they are? 

Then we’re looking at 2 options. 

These being?

Firstly, is Karma present?

Oh. 

Yeah, for something to occur, Karma needs to be present. Karma creates a field for the event to occur. 

I see. 

If Karma is present, and the event is still not occurring, then there is blockage. 

What to do about blockage?

This is where the energy of your thoughts comes into play. It removes blockage, bit by bit, till blockage is gone. 

And then the event occurs?

Correct. 

What if there’s lots and lots of blockage?

Then you need lots and lots of thought-energy, will-power and time. 

And ultimately?

Ultimately, when the resultant vector of thought-energy, will-power and time surpasses the blockage in magnitude, the blockage is gone and the event occurs. 

Wonderful. What if Karma is absent?

Aha!

Meaning. 

That’s a tough cookie. 

How tough?

First, thought-energy will create Karma. 

Oh.

That takes time and circumstance. Long drawn out process. Thought-energy speeds it up though. 

And then?

Then, if blockage has occurred while creating the Karma, thought-energy will dispense with blockage. 

Just like the above process?

Very much so. 

Making it a longer process time-wise?

Much longer. Do you think it’s easy to create exactly the kind of karmic events required to trigger an event for which Karma was formerly absent?

No. 

There you go. It’s a real struggle. 

Can you give examples?

Of events coming to pass where Karma was absent and was created due to thought-energy, persistence and will-power?

Yes. 

A child being born who was not destined earlier, but then was. 

Wow!

A relationship – not destined earlier, but destined now.

In the same life?

Yes. 

So one makes one’s own Karma?

Yes. With different degrees of difficulty, depending on the kind of Karma one is pursuing. Destined Karma will be catalysed and then the event will come to pass. Non-destined Karma will first be created, and then, after removal of freshly accumulated blockage, even such Karma will come to pass. 

I see. Thank you, that was very enlightening. 

Welcome.
