Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

Chanting your way to inner bliss

Chanting is reciting something over and over again. It may involve saying it or singing it. It may even involve singing or saying it into yourself. It's purpose is to help yourself and/or somebody else.

Chanting an affirmation such as, "Nothing matters but how I feel about it and I feel wonderful and always will", can be used to make you feel more positive and develop inner peace.

Over time, chanting opens up the mind and mystical experiences can happen. Chanting takes you to new levels of awareness and gives you peace - peace is just peace, there is no such thing as spiritual peace as such. Chanting will be more encouraging if it is engaged in with others.

The chant, Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, as used by Nicheren Shoshu Buddhism is recommended. The chant reflects the doctrine that enlightenment and fulfilment is available to all. Its popularity and its import indicate that it is the best chant of all. The system teaches a form of atheism.

There are tremendous testimonials to its power to bring emotional and material blessings. These arise from the confidence it helps one to develop. 

The power of chanting and meditation mean that you an reach the stage where your dreams become omnipotent. You can reach the illusion of living on a happy world forever and ever. It will not last but its a terrific experience and quantity is not everything. Quality is more important.

Chanting a mantra that is most commonly used in the world is usually recommended. When people are chanting the same thing to generate energy they are cooperating much more closely than they would be if they were chanting different things.
 
Chanting to make things happen magically is a waste of time. Do it to improve the way you feel.
