Re: First Pilgrimage to Taisekiji

:) Only the Sovereign, Emperor of Japan (or Empress if primogenture is no longer followed) can declare Kosen-Rufu for Nichiren Shoshu and only he can declare to erecting the Honmon Kaidan as the National Platform for the Dai Gohonzon in Mount Fuji. Not even the High Priests have this accorded privil...

Re: Not getting results - what to do !

If mixed religious teachings and practices of Soka Gakkai are openly done in your SGI organization, then they are no longer teaching and following the parent doctrines of Nichiren Shoshu. Your lack of understanding regarding the doctrines of Nichiren Shoshu suggests you have a lot of studying and re...

Re: Not getting results - what to do !

Mixing various religious practices are Not the teachings of the Head Temple.





You can read the direct subject on Nichiren Shoshu and Nichiren Daishonin on Wikipedia or at www.NST.org for your further understanding and clarity of the topic.

Re: Not getting results - what to do !

Please Connect with a Nichiren Shoshu Temple near you and get an authorized copy of the Dai Gohonzon from a Nichiren Shoshu priest, follow the guidance and teachings of the Head Temple Taisekiji and practice again without force or begrudgement. You don’t need Faith, just the willingness and sincerit...

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. The designated main hall of the Head Temple is the Mieido building, and this is also a temporary structure unt...

Re: can we talk about this/differing sect ideas in Nichiren Schools

Actually “Shonin” literally translates to “Correct Person” or “True Person” But this title has been used for many Japanese Buddhist sects in deference to their superiors, so naturally the same method is used in Nichiren Shoshu. The word “master” commonly used by Hokkeko priests to their Chief Priest...

Re: Do you practice with Nichiren Shu, SGI or Nichiren Shoshu?

We are also practitioners of Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism. I like the fact that all the original/older Soka Gakkai beliefs and religious practices are fully found intact within Nichiren Shoshu doctrines, and that the Head Temple protects these traditionalist teachings through our Hokkeko practice.

Please go back to reading the "Nichiren Shoshu - Basics of Practice" to refresh your old doctrines on Hokkeko teachings.

Or it may be apparent that you never learned them correctly on the first place so now you have no current understanding of my statement. :yinyang:

Nichimoku Shonin, the third High Priest of Nichiren Shoshu met the Daishonin at age 14 to 15. He was practicing as a student in a Shingon Temple of Vajrayana Buddhism but was convinced by the argument of Nikko Shonin who eventually took him as a disciple, from Mount Izu to Mount Minobu where he serv...

Re: SGI had to "create" a new religion after excommunication for copyright/tax reasons?

SGI making their own interpretative Gohonzon for their believers is an excellent decision. Yes, that would be a tremendous benefit for everyone concerned and I can imagine many Nichiren Shoshu believers would also be delighted for the senior SGI leadership to stop using any renditions of the Dai Goh...

Good luck. People with much more pull than you can imagine have tried and ended up giving up. The power of least common denominator. You're dealing with an organization that is part of the Japanese government. Power is deep, heavy and well funded. Momentum is set and they've already dealt with you ...

That is an image of the Dai Gohonzon transcribed by 67th High Priest NIKKEN Shonin. It is the 1985 Mandala version, same as the one installed in Los Angeles Myohoji Temple in 1997. The Chief priest assigned to this New York Temple is Vice-President Shinga Takikawa.

I don't mean it out of any animosity toward SG or its practitioners, but I think it's an important that the "divorce" be finalized. Given the importance of the gohonzon, this is an important step.
