Clyde Okita "Magical Thinking"

Clyde Okita
In 2016, by chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo and rebuilding my daily practice of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism, I became myself, again, one day.

At A Loss For Words
In 2009, I survived a stroke and brain surgery. I could not chant, for 6 months. I could not do Gongyo, for 2 years. Then I started telling everyone I could about Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo. I thanked the Dai-Gohonzon, in person. I got out of a nursing home, in 2014.

Global Warming
In 2006, during the 4th Silent Prayer of Morning Gongyo to my Nichiren Shoshu Gohonzon, I prayed again for my impossible desire. To do "art photography" the way I had 30 years earlier. Then I took this photograph.

In 1981, I was awestruck to learn that Nichiren Daishonin revealed Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo to enable all human beings to attain Buddhahood. Then I took this photograph.
