Re: 6 senior priests / why?

Merely translating doesn't establish competence. That may or may not be true. What it does is show what was written. That is a starting point for a discussion. To call it following a rabbit hole shows a lack of compassion and a lack of seeking the truth. You seem to think indicate that wanting to f...

Re: 6 senior priests / why?

I ask you- How would you know if someone is a competent translator? Can you read the languages this person translates from to what I would guess to be English?

An amazing feat of debate brought to you by Nichiren shoshu Much appreciated Minobu hear that that woooshing sound it's the sound of motivated sarcasm going over your head..

yeah this whole thing needs to stop.. Nichiren Shoshu should be thankful for the 700 plus Temples the Gakki built for them to use...never asking for them back...All of the overseas Temples were built by the Soka Gakki for them...and i don;t know how many temples were there in Japan before Toda..but...

cutting and pasting that japanese text into google produces a verbatim translation at a click so both are baseless claims https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=p-RXX5bOBrrBytMPvZGQoAE&q=%E5%85%83%E4%BA%A8+%E3%81%92%E3%82%93%E3%81%93%E3%81%86+%E4%B8%89%E5%B9%B4%E5%85%AD%E6%9C%88%E4%BA%8C%E5%8D%...

Re: Anger and frustration

A blind man knows he cannot see, and is glad to be led, though it be by a dog; but he that is blind in his understanding, which is the worst blindness of all, believes he sees as the best, and scorns a guide.

Anger and frustration

One day, the Buddha was on one of his rounds asking for alms along with Ananda, his trusted attendant. When they called out for alms outside a particular house, the lady of the house came out and abused the Buddha for coming to her doorstep and asking for alms first thing in the morning. Also, she w...

Re: 6 senior priests / why?

As you said, most here can’t read it. This is why one can be easily fooled by money hungry hobos. (謗法). If a person can not read it how do you think one can have any type of comprehensive understanding of Buddhist doctrine? Add to that the 138 gosho that most likely one has never heard of and you ca...

Re: why refer to MyoHo RenGe Kyo as an entity ?

Stop looking for the source. It will never end. It is merely thus. As for Buddha - "Enough, Vakkali! What is there to see in this vile body? He who sees Dhamma, Vakkali, sees me; he who sees me sees Dhamma. Truly seeing Dhamma, one sees me; seeing me one sees Dhamma." -Vakkali Sutta Myohorengekyo i...

I have to try and post the same pm several times before it actually gives me the ‘successfully sent’ message. Is this a common occurrence or some setting I’m not aware of.

Thankfully these teachings are to be held to the 4 standards and not cultural paradigms. All of his teachings can be validated through the lotus sutra itself.
