Talking negatively about others?

Post by bcol01 » Wed Sep 13, 2017 6:53 pm

What would Nichiren Buddhism have to say about this and why is it that those who have the most to hide/faults feel the need to tarnish others?

Don't do it?

But, pointing out error, in the appropriate circumstance, is not talking negatively.

As to why do people denigrate each other? We can't help it? We're flailing around, trying to alleviate our suffering, but don't know any better? We all need someone to bleed on? :shrug:
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter
