My First Days Chanting, A Buddhability Journey

We are excited to announce something special today—A 28 Day Buddhability Journey—which we’re kicking off on February 1. It’s a monthlong challenge to chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo every day for however long you’d like, and it’s open to anyone, whether you’re brand new to chanting or just want a reason to refresh your practice.

Sign-up at buddhability.org/journey for all the details!

Before we start the journey together, we thought it would helpful to talk to someone who is currently on this journey herself. So we called up Shannon Griffin, 26, of Philadelphia, who started chanting in March, right at the beginning of the pandemic.

(You can also listen to Buddhability on AppleSpotify, or wherever you get podcasts.)
