Re: Personal Note to the Nichiren Forum

Sorry to butt in, but the conversation is interesting. I realize Nichiren is a "closed system" in some ways...but I have to say, half the SGI people I've known over the years I know because they also did other Buddhist stuff from time to time, how that would be received in their own communities I h...

I've already busted this wide open. He's a Jedi now. Case closed. :buddha1: :jedi: I'm wondering if he had any certain layings on of hands from a certain teacher(s) representing a certain abhiṣeka from a certain set of ten-directional Buddhas at a certain 10th bhūmi, but if such were the case he co...

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: Split from When the Monks Met the Muslims

Well I suppose I did invite that... I should probably say - I no longer consider myself Nichiren Buddhist. I offer my comments only to the extent that this is stuff I know from a long period of study. Is it serious you don't consider yourself Nichiren Buddhist ? What happened ? Which teaching are y...

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 ...

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...
