We at Kempon Hokke never do any of those theatrical shows you mentioned.
This practice is not for overcoming health problems, getting money or any other type of wish-fulfillment. As a result of correct practice these things may or may not be experienced by a practitioner, but this is very dependent on individual karma. To try to attribute these type of mundane occurrences to our practice is rather lame. if one were enlightened then the individual would know, but since we aren't, how are we supposed to determine such things?
Thank you for providing me with the perspective of your school. I can agree with you that spiritual practices are meant for overcoming suffering and reaching enlightenment.
If there are any Nichiren Shu members of Nichiren Shoshu members that happen across this thread I would like your explanation of this ceremony. The meaning of the gestures and the instruments used.
