So, a good friend who lurks here told me that I posted the wrong image for the Shutei Gohonzon. This is the Shutei. No. 81 in the Gohonzon-shu.

Yep. That's the Gohonzon I was given at Nichiren Shu. I was actually going to offer a correction as well, as that didn't seem to be the Shutei Gohonzon that Q posted. But I actually second-guessed myself, LOL, because as a general rule Q knows more than me. LOL.

Beware - you never really know who's behind the keyboard. This is a pretty good portrait of QQ.

My brother, this is what I imagine when I think of you…. Which is often…. LOL. (Just kidding. Awkward joke. Sorry. But come on, you're virtually a professor on this subject.)

Not to further fan the flames of anyone's curiousity, but don't let Q's false modesty fool you. He has the upright gait of a bodhisattva and a lofty countenance of dignified serenity... kind of like a hafu Edward Cullen.

Often times he simply stands, high and tall above the dwellers of the phantom city as he surveys them—a calm, glistening discernment in his eyes like the clarity of chilling, sweet mountain springs just freed from the snow... and yet, something else beckons. The luminance of a blazing heart; a brilliant, inextinguishable fire, warm as the rays of the sky's only sun piercing through the night, as fierce as the lion in his dominion and masterful as an emperor Khan having subdued all resistance...

Yes, to know him is to love him, and to love him is to know him.



:mrgreen:

These Gohonzon are pretty interesting, too—and a serious subject. A precious concern.

That statue of Miroku is one of my favorites. It's even more amazing in person.
