Re: What do you do if you cannot get a person to see their own hatred, delusions, dysfunction, etc?

It is dependent on one's capacity to remain unaffected in the process. Leaving a person to their karma while modeling a proper example within that environment is also reasonable but far more challenging. Sometimes we have no choice we have to share the same environment. Either way people can learn f...

Re: benefits from chanting

Many people only address suffering in the moment, i.e. they react to the effect. When the effect is gone so is their need to address it. In this age people are ignorant to causation. In the western world it seems even more of a mystery among the masses. This fundamental ignorance does allow people t...

THIS is in regard to the passage “This sutra is hard to uphold.”1 According to Āchārya Ben,2 you said to him: “I have been practicing the Lotus Sutra correctly since last year, when you told me that those who embrace this sutra will ‘enjoy peace and security in their present existence and good circ...

Re: From Atheism to Nichiren Shoshu

Everything including ignorance, atheism and theism are products of the sentient mind. If they didn't have real consequence there would be no need for the buddha's teachings. I think it is paramount to challenge one's own perceptions in the regards to one's own atheism and/or theistic views. They are...

Re: Seems Gakki study department has changed it's tune

You do realize that enlightenment and Buddhahood are not one and the same... Yes and this is why I think ultimately that Nichiren wanted this to be understood on a personal level according to cause, conditions and capacity. The point is that it might seem reasonable that (Nichiren) in the process o...

Re: Seems Gakki study department has changed it's tune

Both Nichiren and Shakyamuni possessed the same enlightenment. Neither is less true than the other. Nichiren makes this clear. The only division is among practitioners and even then there has been no proof of malignant intent. There are other ways to view this such as some minds requiring an indepen...

Re: Seems Gakki study department has changed it's tune

I still don't see the controversy and my teacher went the way of SGI after the split. As one who recognizes, respects and resonates my teacher's view I still don't see offense in Shoshu actions. I.E. to say there is a deducible reasoning that could be applied here. More easily than suspecting someth...

Re: Seems Gakki study department has changed it's tune

Note Nichiren makes the rhetorical statement does it apply (identifying a bodhisattva superior practices) to himself then says his is "only" a "local deputy". Later in the same gosho he reveals his enlightenment is the enlightenment of the lotus. Foreshadowed earlier in the gosho is a statement on t...

Re: 6 senior priests / why?

Those teachings are expedients Erroneous teachings such as these are too numerous to be counted. Their adherents pay as much respect and honor to the teachers who propound them as the heavenly deities pay to the lord Shakra, or the court ministers pay to the ruler of the empire. But not a single per...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

3rd What would Buddha say? Well he would probably call out abortions for what they are and that is negative. That is simple, however Buddha is not some sort of close minded conservative pundit. Abortions are necessary evil. Just like surgeries are. Nope. No implicit bias against the evil of man. Th...
