Re: Any independent Nichiren Buddhists here?

Independent of what? I, Nichiren, am not the founder of any school, nor am I a latter-day follower of any older school. I am a priest without precepts, neither keeping the precepts nor breaking them. I am an ordinary creature like an ox or a sheep, who is neither particularly wise nor ignorant. -Th...

Re: human revolution 1973 - movie

I guess that i know what Q means. Toda was a little bit more radical than Ikeda. For example: he said that x number of people should be converted, so he made his followers executed it, at any cost. if it was not made it would be a serious thing.

Re: Why do we have to do continuous daimoku?

nice topic. I guess it's related to the same principle of zazen : practice is illumination itself and other things related to it that are in my subconciousness but i can't recall right now

Re: What does it mean: "i wrote my life in sumi" by Nichiren ?

Here is an "orthodox" translation of the passage: The soul of Nichiren “I, Nichiren have indeed written it by letting my soul (tamashii) dipped in ink flow forth. The very intention (heart) of the Buddha is the Lotus Sutra; the soul of Nichiren is nothing other than Namu Myoho renge kyo. Chan-jan e...

Re: another sutra classification beside tiantai

Do you know if there is another kind of sutra classification beside that one of Zhiyi or Tiantai school ? The word for it is panjiao ( 判教 ), i.e. doctrinal classification, and different schools and teachers have set up such schema. Apart from the Tiantai version , there are the Sanlun , Faxiang , H...

Re: another sutra classification beside tiantai

What I'm asking is, aside from the actual details of the classification, what do you think the significance of the system is? Why are you asking this question? What are you looking for? Significance: there are superior and inferior teachings; provisional methods, definitive methods Why : if exists ...

Not sure what you mean. Do you know what Zhiyi had to say?

i'm curious if another tradition classified the sutras or teachings as Zhiyi did. i looked for but didn't find it.

Re: Nichiren's exclusivism

i agree with you, brother. but how justify it better ? Others buddhist schools can say that their method are the best, but did not say the others will lead people to bad destinies. I mean...Dogen said that people who rejected the sutras should be beaten with iron rods and thrown into hell. A certai...

Re: Nichiren's exclusivism

Yes, by exclusivism i meant that. What looks problematic to me was his harsh way to say that the others were wrong. What do you think ? That’s the part I don’t think we necessarily need to copy. Nichiren was reacting to very harsh circumstances. There were plagues, earthquakes, famines, attempted f...
