Is anyone familiar with Honmon Butsuryo Shu?

Post by bcol01 » Wed Aug 22, 2018 5:13 pm

I was recently reading one of their PDF's listed on their website and have found their particular way of explaining the ins and outs of Nichiren Buddhism to be very helpful. If anyone has any thoughts on this particular sect, I'd love to hear.

Heard of it, but don’t know a lot about it. I believe that they only chant chapter 21 of the LS and the daimoku, and they are, like Nichiren Shoshu, a fuju fuse school.

I was just on their website and it looks like I might be wrong about their focus on Chapter 21. And perhaps the fuju fuse thing, too. Maybe I’m getting it confused with another group. It seems they have an idiosyncratic way of explaining some things (lots of references to the soul and “holy energy”), but I suspect that’s mostly a language/translation issue.

As a Nichiren Shu believer, there isn’t anything there that I have major disagreements with, at first glance.

Just to be sure - we are talking about Honmon Butsuryu Shu aren't we?
Or is there also a Honmon Butsuryo Shu?

Do you have a link to the site you were looking at?
