Re: First Pilgrimage to Taisekiji

Regarding the significance of the Dai-Gohonzon of the High Sanctuary of the Essential Teaching, 26th High Priest Nichikan Shonin states: The Gohonzon of the High Sanctuary of the Essential Teaching, inscribed in the second year of Kō’an (1279), is the supreme entity of the Law of Nichiren Daishonin’...

Re: First Pilgrimage to Taisekiji

Just to clarify to avoid confusion, The main hall (Hondo) of the Head Temple is not the Hoando, it is just a general storage house for the Dai Gohonzon mandala, and is a temporary building. Thank you for clarifying! Yes, just as Nichiren Daishonin willed in the Sandaihihō-shō and the Minobu sojo , ...

Re: Able to awaken to our innate Buddha-nature through our actual practice?

Provisional teachings ( gonkyo ) refer to the teachings and sutras preached for 42 years prior to the Lotus Sutra -- both Hinayana and Mahayana. These provisional teachings did not reveal the doctrine of ichinen sanzen , thus it was not taught that all people throughout the nine worlds could attain ...

so what is it John? is it already there or does it manifest , as you claim, when you hear the words Namu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo for the first time ? Hi Minobu! Good to see you back here! Theoretically, we possess the inherent Buddha-nature/potential. But, unless we receive the seed of Buddhahood, we hav...

Re: New to Nichiren... and my attitude is.....

Welcome! The ultimate goal of practicing Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism is the attainment of enlightenment in our present form ( sokushin jobutsu ). Nichiren Daishonin revealed his own enlightenment in the form of the Gohonzon. Through our practice of chanting Daimoku to the Gohonzon, we can fuse wit...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2AHl4jC9Uc New Hokkeko believers briefly describe their first tozan experience. Tozan is where Nichiren Shoshu believers go to the Head Temple Taisekiji, and can directly chant to the Dai-Gohonzon of the High Sanctuary of the Essential Teaching. Nichiren Shoshu memb...

Three Great Secret Laws

The Japanese Buddhist term sandai hihō means “Three Great Secret Laws,” and refers to a doctrine first expounded by our founder Nichiren Daishonin to serve as the foundation of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism. The Three Great Secret Laws are the True Object of Worship of the Essential Teaching ( honmon no ...

Re: Chanting Daimoku

The Workshop book discusses Nikko's signature of Nichiren, terming it "zaigoban", as a representation of Nichiren. Apparently a few other schools did as well. Other abbots of some other schools would simply add his name to their gohonzons- apparently Nikko did too in some cases. Posthumously, Nikko...

Re: Chanting Daimoku

The Ozagawari Gohonzon is index in the Mandala Workshop books, pages 84 and 87 of the 3rd book. I may be somewhat confused in the indexing, but they indicate it was inscribed for Nichimoku in 1290, following a pattern developed from earlier gohonzons in 1278. The format generally copies one of Nich...
