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 ...

Re: Nichiren as Honbutsu

ok, change "solve" for "understand" though. To understand the common and the difference in their teachings or perspectives help us with the other questions. better put: the difference among Shakyamuni, Tientai and Nichiren"s Lotu Sutra IMHO

Re: Nichiren as Honbutsu

IMHO all this questions : emptiness, relativity, buddhanature, enlightenment, original buddha, provisional buddha, boddhisatva can be better solved if before we solve the difference among Shakyamuni, Tientai and Nichiren Lotus Sutra or the "teaching" difference.

Re: Nichiren as Honbutsu

IMHO it's not so important. Although i loved your perspective.
Something more important, i guess, is understand whats the difference between Shakyamuni, Tientai and Nichiren Lotus Sutra. Could you help us with it, brother ronnymarsh?

Re: What does it mean, "All other Buddhas are followers of Shakyamuni Buddha?

"Again, if we consider the question of how long it has been since these various Buddhas attained the fruit of Buddhahood, then we will find that there are some who became Buddhas ten kalpas ago, others a hundred kalpas or a thousand kalpas ago. But in the case of Shakyamuni Buddha, the lord of teac...

Re: What does it mean, "All other Buddhas are followers of Shakyamuni Buddha?

"Perhaps you could suggest what a "buddha practice" is vs bodhisattva practices?" "Bodhisattva practice is what leads to Buddhahood. Bodhisattva practice IS the Buddha's practice." I guess that two sentences above show that ask who's the original buddha, whats Nichiren identity proves how these deba...

What does it mean "works"? so Buddha teachings doesn't work ? And a boddhisatva practice is superior to a buddha practice ? i can keep with these kind of questions, but IMHO this debate is pointless. remembering : IMHO only

Re: What does it mean, "All other Buddhas are followers of Shakyamuni Buddha?

IMHO Gakkai has departed from many things related to Shoshu. One question to the ones who says that Nichiren was a bodhisatva is: why so follow a practice established from an bodhisatva and not a buddha ?

net or pdf resources on Nichidatsu fujii ?

Dear ones,

As i said in another post i'm from brazil and as you may know here is harder to get good books about Nichiren buddhism (with exception of Gakkai books that i like too); so i'm looking for another resources.
Resources about Nichidatsu fujii would be great.

Thank you

Re: Why Ongi Kuden quotes Ongi Kuden ?

I don't know what you are referring to. Can you point to an example? Where it says, "The Record of the Orally Transmitted Teaching Says", that is signifying Nichiren's commentary. I got confused because i was reading Martin Bradley version and he repeats more than once in one chapter "ongi kuden sa...
