Namu Butsu wrote:I am sure Nichiren Buddhist believe that Nichiren is enlightened, but is there any letters of his where he speaks of his enlightenment? From what I read I know he doubted if he was expounding the Lotus Sutra, because he was not protected until he had his vision. So was he already enlightened before his doubts or did he eventually become enlightened? Or has he yet to be enlightened. I would love to see some of his letters on this subject.
