It is my understanding that the morality or ethical teachings in Nichiren Buddhism center around the Law of Cause and Effect.
Technically, they’re no different than in Mahayana Buddhism generally. But Nichiren didn’t emphasize taking or keeping precepts at all. He equated the “diamond chalice precept(s)” of the Sutra of Brahma’s Net with upholding the daimoku of the Lotus Sutra, and further stated that the merit of upholding the daimoku is greater than that of upholding the first 5 of the 6 paramitas.
