Tina Turner: What Chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo Feels Like for Me

I think we’ve all seen and read and heard of a lot of horror lately. Sometimes, in the middle of the night and at the end of the year, we need to hold on a little tighter to what we believe in and what we hold dear.

I am a Nichiren Buddhist like Tina. Sometimes we need to hold on to ourselves as well as to each other. There is nothing more valuable and affirming than being here at this moment as a human being. It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor. Your precious life is all that really matters, and those of your loved ones.

Hang on to what you’ve got. Make something better out of your life.

  1. I began my Buddhist practice 5 years ago and just as Ms. Turner mentions chanting brings to your attention those things you need to address or work on. I have been confronted with the same things over and over that needed to be addressed. Unfortunately, I’ve ignored those things only to my detriment. With my Gohonzon, my renewed determination, and the support of Nichiren Buddhism, I will succeed. Thanks to Ms. Turner for helping me on my journey of human revolution…


  2. I am so happy to have come across this message my seeking mind has allow me to find this and I will have an opportunity to get the DVD THANK YOU NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO


  3. I started my practice first out of curiosity and then because it just felt right. I had always read about Buddhism but this particular tradition was pretty new to me. However, I recognized in it this Universal Truth and its glorifying power of changing one’s own reality, especially the chanting had a particular magical effect in me and gradually I felt a transformation that was activated through chanting this powerful mantra Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, a chanting that besides beautiful also sounded mystical, simply a calling for the manifestation of the Mystic Law!


  4. Im a bodhisattva of the earth and i’m here because of your shakabuku from the tina turner movie so i wanted to give appreciation for you opening my eyes to this religion and my change of karma from past and for my future.


  5. I appreciate Tina’s admiration for Nichiren Diashonin’s buddhism. Makes long time buddhist like myself want to chant more and rededicate to their practice. Thank you Tina for sharing your buddhist experience with the world!
