Re: Soka Gakkai yesterday and today

Years ago Gakkai emphasis on what they use to call actual proof that was usually related to material benefits was something that disturbed me. Another feature is that they consider Ikeda as the great master, i don't see it as a great problem. I don't see they treat him as a divinity. Perhaps the sim...

Re: Why is Nichiren Buddhism (or at least its organizations) so dysfunctional?

All organizations have problems. Look for one which is better to you. It's not an obligation participate in something is nor ok to you. For me, Gakkai is great because without it Nichiren would not be known in the west and it emphacize buddhism as something interwoven with reality, society, not some...

Re: What is the 'Law'?

Yes, simultaneity of cause and effect is a key concept encapsulated in the daimoku. It explains sucintly from the buddhist point of view how the universe works and its relation to the Buddha enlightment. Beside it I guess that the daimoku meaning is something beyond conceptual knowledge. it's someth...

Re: The profound meaning of Nichiren's Daimoku

Does that mean the Law is originally nameless? Chicken or egg? To suggest it is originally nameless supposes some starting point. To suggest that the name is inherent, unitary, unchanging, is to misunderstand the teaching. In the final analysis, the meaning of the Lotus Sutra is that the metaphor i...

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...

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.
