Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

For those folks who are Nichiren Buddhists, I would caution against reading too much into this discussion of Nichiren and Esotericism. The teachers of your schools will have something to say about these ideas, and may not necessarily be favorable. I would urge you to seek your teachers' opinions on ...

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

Nichiren certainly practiced both the Mikkyo esotericism of the two Mandalas... Also, its worth noting he states he prayed to Kokuzobosatsu to become the wisest person in Japan when he was an acolyte at Kiyosumidera. That is also an esoteric practice associated with the Morning Star (Venus). When d...

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

I'm not offended. There are many things I deeply revere about Nichiren. One of them was his deep compassion. What is the Eternal meeting on Eagle Peak (the so called Ceremony in the Air)? I used to resist this, but I've come around to the view that its Shakyamuni's eternal sermon in Akanistha. Thos...

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

Sorry for being obtuse. In the above, are you saying that in Nichiren traditions, there is a linking of Aizen-myoo and Fudo-myoo to the Kongokai and Taizokai mandala? As I understand, not just Nichiren, but this actually comese from Esoteric Tendai practice that focus on the integration of the Lotu...

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

Those two memorials to his receiving the lineage of the Kongokai and Taizokai mandalas from Aizen Myoo and Fudo Myoo should make people open their eyes. They should take more serious notice of Aizen and Fudo on his gohonzon. The connections are screaming their presence. BTW, those two memorials to ...

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

I can't find the statement but someone here and i think it was QQ that Nichiren Shonin was a TenDai monk. I always thought Dozenbo a Nembutsu Abbot was what He referred to as His Master. He always remained loyal to the bond. Dozenbo was a Tendai monk whose main practice was nembutsu of Amida Buddha...

So i did not know that Tien Tai, introduced to Samsara if you will ,to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.
Not quite.

In Tendai practices, homage is paid to Myohorengekyo, the Lotus Sutra, but its not chanted by itself. It is part of longer liturgies. Its not practiced or understood in the same way.

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

There is nothing in my knowledge that comes close to the implications of Nichiren Shonin's teachings and practice, in Tien Dai. I'm pretty sure 南無妙法蓮華經 namu myōhō renge kyō is technically from a Tendai liturgy, though I couldn't tell you which. "Opening the provisional to reveal the real." Gautama ...

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

so i never considered the importance Nichiren DaiShonin put into TenDai.. So besides the concept of Ichinen Sanzen , which isn't from the Lotus sutra, what other aspect of TenDai did Nichiren shonin incorporate into His Dharma. 97.5% Even the Daimoku is from Tiantai/Tendai. The importance of the Da...

thanks now we have both of the Mandalas . They're not mandalas. oh ..what are they then...i thought they depicted the womb world and diamond world depictions.. i think they really are mandalas QQ They're some kind of memorial to his encounters with Fudo Myoo and Aizen Myoo. I don't think there is a...

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

In Kanjin Honzon Sho [and other goshos], in describing the Object for Contemplation of the Mind, Nichiren draws a clear distinction between two "types" of Shakyamuni: One is the Eternal Buddha and the other the Historical Buddha, but the two are not necessarily the same. One clarification - they're...
