Karmic return.

Two questions: Firstly, I have practised for eighteen years, I haven’t stopped saying to myself that I am not in reality. What about reality? Secondly, Master Deshimaru taught that we go back inevitably to the infernal cycle of transmigration if our practice is not mushotoku. Do we follow this karmic return until our death? Thanks, all the ...

ZEN and Nichiren

I lately rediscovered zen, I could find peace in it as I have done a tentative of suicide (unemployment) but I am again peaceful from 3 years. I was practising the Nichiren Buddhism.
