    I am a member of SGI which is a Buddhist organization based in Japan. I have been practicing for 10 years. I think my Buddhist practice focuses on how our environment is a reflection of our own lives. When we want to change our environment we must make the “right causes” in order to change the effects that we are experiencing.
