In this book, Atkins introduces us to the Buddhist master Nichiren (1222-1281) and the healing teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha as laid out in the Lotus Sutra. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is an old mantra that has accumulated a great deal of power from centuries of countless individuals focusing their highest intents while chanting it. He explains how nam-myoho-renge-kyo can be used to "undo" karma that has damaged our health. Methods for chanting while visualizing abound in this book. His example, along with that of many others struggling with diseases as diverse as fibromyalgia, diabetic ulcers, high blood pressure, and mental illness, provides a beacon of hope for those facing illness. Atkins's book shows that with hope, faith, and prayer nothing is impossible.

I recently just happened to be in a bookstore recently when Mr. Atkins was discussing his book and experiences. I always have my "B.S. meter" on full alert...suffice to to say that this is book not religious froo-froo or dogmatic salesmanship. The principles that he teaches here make sense for anyone and apparently work too. I'm impressed. If you buy it, Modern Buddhist Healing can change your life for the better on every level.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is exactly what many people are seeking right now. Atkins teaches clearly how to use our own potential for healing. His own personal experience is added to illustrate the truth in his message. Many patients feel that their ailment overshadows their individual value and humanity. They may feel like an ambulatory medical chart in a clinical setting. Thus the tremendous popularity and demand for alternative therapies that focus on total beings instead of sickness. Alternative medicine is a rapidly expanding field in the U.S., gaining in momentum and acceptance by more average Americans every year. Western medicine typically attributes causes of illness to physical realities while Eastern medicine considers life energy and the mind; the merging of these two diverse approaches is the future of medicine. Atkins believes that regardless of an individual's belief system, there are methods to incorporate prayer into treatment that actively include and empower the patient in their own healing process. Modern science has made considerable strides in the understanding of psychosomatic illness and is beginning to accept the reciprocal influence the body and mind have on each other.Was this review helpful?
