I remember receiving my first essay title… “Was Muhammad a greater prophet or statesman?”. I thought they were talking about Muhammad Ali, the boxer! I thought to myself: “Did that famous boxer ever claim to be a prophet?” That’s how unfamiliar Islam was to me.
Yet all the Muslims I could find would use excessive amounts of Arabic or Urdu in explaining their understanding of the religion. On top of that, they were very attached to their native cultures in terms of clothing and mannerisms. Nothing I could see in them made me feel that I could belong as a Muslim.
For the next 15 years, I became more and more devoted to Buddhism, spending hours praying every day and making several pilgrimages. I also became very active in spreading it. We had a political party in Japan and we actively sought membership. Our goal was world peace and we believed that if a third of the world became Buddhist, we'd get world peace.
