sentient beings-enlightenment-evolution

Dear sisters and brothers,

If all sencient beings has potential to become a buddha, can we say that the most simple forms of life will evolve till one were they can manifest enlightenment ? If yes, does it not implies a beginning to counsciousness evolution ?

Re: Nichiren's exclusivism

Nice points Q and dude. But there is the ideia of law slandering ( i confess i don't understand it very well) that is intimately related to Nichiren condenation of other buddhists schools. I guess that is a very important point. I mean how can someone know if they were sincere in their faith ? If so...

Re: Nichiren's exclusivism

We must think today so radically as Nichiren that his path is the only one right and all the others are paths that lead to bad ends ????

Re: Nichiren's exclusivism

I assume what is meant is the idea that the Lotus Sutra is the only path to Buddhahood in the age of mappo, and more specifically, the practice formulated by Nichiren based on it. I dont think it’s circumstantial. Nichiren’s criticisms of certain sects of his time may have been circumstantial, and ...

Re: Let's Discuss - Is Nichiren Hombutsu?

I supose you are kiding me. If the answer is there why you have not the answer yet? Are you kidding me? I'm quite satisfied. You, on the other hand, praise nonsensical articles and statements and question proofs presented to you that are quite clear, asserting things like, "The debate is irrelevant...

Yeah I've found it painful reading both from a scholarship and sectarianism standpoint. I looked up the sokahumanism.com domain, looks like its registered to somebody in Melbourne, Australia - so perhaps not official SGI Japan. scholarship is ok, but buddhism is not the same thing.

Re: Let's Discuss - Is Nichiren Hombutsu?

This thread has been split off from the "Nichiren as Hombutsu" thread in the Nichiren Shoshu sub-forum. Not all Nichiren lineages accept this teaching; in fact it is the view of only a few lineages. However, by virtue of the large number of lay members associated with these traditions, the view is ...
