Re: 6 senior priests / why?

Much appreciated Minobu hear that that woooshing sound it's the sound of motivated sarcasm going over your head..

Re: 6 senior priests / why?

Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo is the ultimate Law, and possesses both the simultaneous cause and effect for attaining Buddhahood. I suggest reading Totaigi-sho or "The Entity of the Mystic Law" This Law is embodied in the Gohonzon. When we chant these seven characters to the Gohonzon, we awaken our Buddha-na...

As you said, most here can’t read it. This is why one can be easily fooled by money hungry hobos. (謗法). If a person can not read it how do you think one can have any type of comprehensive understanding of Buddhist doctrine? Add to that the 138 gosho that most likely one has never heard of and you c...

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 indepe...

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

If one considers what Nichiren Shonin wanted us to know.. from the gosho posted above.. It is to reveal that the beings of the phenomenal world are Buddhas eternally endowed with the three bodies. ‘Buddhahood’ means being enlightened to this.” Here Nichiren is saying that every being is essentially ...

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

correct me if I am wrong. I was taught by the Gakki when they were the lay organization of Nichiren Shoshu and when I was in Nichiren ShoShu after the divorce that there were documents from Nichiren Shonin to Nikko Shonin proving Nichiren Shonin was the True Buddha of Kuon Ganjo now it seems that on...
