Re: Where to purchase Shoshu liturgy book?

Got your addr dpdx, Im in vacation but will be back in the states on the 16th will mail you the book then. I looked thru the new edition from the link, the biggest differences I saw were in the content of the prayers, though I didnt study the recitation sections closely. I still recite the NSA long...

An original Nichikan Gohonzon: anyone got a picture?

I was wondering if anyone knows of a picture of the original Nichikan Gohonzon that SGI now reproduces. I suppose an original would be over 100 years old at this point, right?

I have a few from the old days, though they are NSA editions from the late 80's. Would be happy to mail you one?
Thanks. I private messages you. 🙏

I'd imagine go to a Temple. Possible they won't sell it to you unless you're danto.
Danto? (Meaning?)

Nearest Temple is about 2000 miles away….

Re: Personal Note to the Nichiren Forum

He said he doesn’t want to say more about it and I’ll choose to respect that. I think he already shared the gist of it. I can respect it too. But if you aren't going to mention it … then why mention it? :shrug: It’s just a bit confusing is all. Why mention it but not mention it, and why continue to...

Where to purchase Shoshu liturgy book?

The latest liturgy book is available online: http://www.bahaistudies.net/asma/nichirenshoshu.pdf

But I’d like to have a hard copy. Just can’t find it anywhere.

Re: Personal Note to the Nichiren Forum

Nothing really. Just explained this: https://dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=31529#p498445 Would it be possible for you to briefly and succinctly explain why you are no longer a Nichiren Buddhist? Your explanation seems very interesting, but in all honesty it is over my head. Naturally, it is ...

Re: Clear diagram of Chinese characters on Gohonzon?

I’m looking for a diagram of the Gohonzon in clearly printed Chinese characters. You see, I recently came upon a Nittatsu Gohonzon, and it means a lot to me that I can actually read the clearly written characters “na-mu-myo-ho-renge-kyo” down the center. I thought it would be great to be able to re...

Re: Surprises in Buddhism?

This thread popped into my head today. It’s been a while…. Can’t believe I wasn’t able to express it this succinctly. This is all I was trying to say: * I thought Buddhism would “enlighten” people to want to relinquish social rank, only to realize that many people who practice Buddhism do so precise...

Re: Etsy Gohonzon store: what do y’all think?

Object to what? Just the fact that he sells them? Is he just selling them to anyone who wants one? I'm not sure I care for that, if that's the case, but there isn't much anyone can do about it. Not all of what is on his site would be suitable honzons for a Nichiren practitioner, but that's neither ...

Etsy Gohonzon store: what do y’all think?

I’m a neutral observer here. No judgement on my part. The only reason I ask what others think of this, is because I’ve never seen this before. The owner of this shop seems to be a nice guy, and he says he is with Nichiren Shu. I suppose I’m a little surprised that a Nichiren Shu minister wouldn’t ob...

Re: I want a Nittatsu gohonzon!

Amazing. Wish I could afford this, over $2,500: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-RARE-SCAR ... 3601257497



I almost feel like it shouldn’t be for sale on eBay, but should be in some kind of museum.

Hi All,

I quit chanting few months back. I want to know is it OK keep Gohonzon rolled up (in a case) in a cabinet. I really do not want to dis-respect anything.

Thanks

You can send it to me if you want.
