My Buddhist Diary

A Chinese proverbs reads: "one picture is worth a thousand words" Anthony "Amp" Elmore a Nichiren Shoshu practicing Buddhist of 34 years from Memphis, Tennessee opens his video diary whereas he documented in words, pictures of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhist from around the world explaining their faith in Buddhism as it is taught by the Nichiren Shoshu Priests. This is perhaps the most comprehensive  video file of English speaking  Nichiren Shoshu Buddhist Worldwide.  Elmore also traveled to Accra, Ghana in 1998 for the history making opening of the first Nichiren Shoshu Temple in Africa and Elmore shows how going to Africa changed his life. For many Buddhism is considered a foreign esotoric religion, Elmore's video documentary opens up a Buddhist world whereas anyone can see, hear and feel to wonder and excitement of practicing Nichiren Shohu Buddhism. Elmore shows that Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism is for the World.
