Let us raise upon the Lord a joyful noise, w00t

Yet more IH 0051 religion presentations but this was without humorous mispronunciation.  Instead, I learned of SGI Meditation and about the religion’s founder Daisaku Ikeda.  A central practice of SGI meditation is the chanting a of a mantra numerous times during the day and the belief that doing so will bring peace and success.  The founder has received 200 honorary doctorates and 150 honorary citizenships.  While I appreciate the simplicity of the doctrine, I doubt its validity:  I’ve been yelling “w00t!” as a prayer unto the Lord a few times a day for the last few years and no divine gifts have befallen me.
