Secular Lotus Buddhists

Secular Lotus Buddhists

By Secular Lotus Buddhists
New grassroots school or sect of Nichiren, Lotus Sutra based secular Buddhism. A philosophical and ethical meditation practice and way of life. Buddha was not a god or deity. He was just a super "woke" aka enlightened human. We ALL have the ability to attain buddhahood, enlightenment, wokeness. Let's do it together and help ourselves, each other, and the planet!
