The third and final story in our miniseries on Buddhism and business features the story of Toki Masubuchi, a restauranteur in Kentucky who defied the odds to build successful, community-driven Japanese-Mexican restaurants. Key point: Chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo allows you to tap into unlimited reserves of energy and fortitude to keep working toward even the most impossible goals. Note: This will be the final set of episodes of Buddhist Solutions of Life’s Problems. Going forward, the show will be accessible for subscribers of the SGI-USA publication, World Tribune.
Human beings have a complicated relationship with money. It’s often the focus of our greed, jealousy or misery. But it can also be used as a tool to help us express our compassion, creativity and freedom. Contrary to popular belief, our desires don’t necessarily have to be extinguished in order to find peace. On this episode, we explore what Buddhism says about desire, wealth and attachment. Hint: it has a lot to do with recognizing and transforming ourselves.
