In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of the way. I really need to WORK HARDER - coz I made another 1 million resolution from Jan - Dec 2009.
The chart you see on the right of this post is a chart that we put beside our butsudan. It tracked our chanting progress. Every 20 minute, we coloured one box. Mine is the one on top, Anne's at the bottom - you can see that she made much better progress than me! Hmmm.. come to think of it, I am not even at one third!!
Edit 22 March 2009: Thanks to Google, a couple of friends in faith found this post and they want to know how many hours of chanting is required to achieve one million diamoku. Here it is. Based on our publication in Malaysia, 20 minutes of chanting is equivalent to 1,000 daimoku. So, one hour is 3,000 daimoku. 1 million would take about 333 hours.
Edit 8 April 2018: Checking my blogger stats, this post is pretty high up in terms of hits and people are still landing to this page. I'd like to share about this website I found. It's called ChantSpace.org . In this website (it's not run by me nor anyone I know), you create a daimoku campaign, in the form of a space. You then design the page with objectives, maybe little steps you would like to chant for as a group, culminating into a bigger objective. You invite group members into this space. And when you all have chanted for the day, each of the team update the space. Collectively, you all can track the progress as a group. It's super cool, honestly. Hope this is useful.
