Re: Non-exclusivist independent Nichiren Buddhism

i guess the topic about Nichiren's exclusivism is a very important one. I disagree a little bit with Minubu about the role the intelect has in Nichiren buddhism, although, of course, i know that the opennes to the not educated people practice and achieve buddhahood is something amazing in Nichiren a...

Re: our mind must be focused in what during daimoku recitation ?

I have been taught in Nichiren Shoshu to focus on the character Myo on the Gohonzon during Daimoku and gongyo. Yeah me too. I recall mrs Uzumi telling us. To look at the v formation and then in that clump is Myo. She was the head of Canada forever. I don’t know if she is alive. She grew up wealthy ...

Re: Let's Discuss - Is Nichiren Hombutsu?

This thread has been split off from the "Nichiren as Hombutsu" thread in the Nichiren Shoshu sub-forum. Not all Nichiren lineages accept this teaching; in fact it is the view of only a few lineages. However, by virtue of the large number of lay members associated with these traditions, the view is ...

Re: our mind must be focused in what during daimoku recitation ?

Hi! So here is the 59th High Priest Nichiko Shonin's guidance on chanting Daimoku, The Daimoku that we chant must be performed attentively and diligently. When chanting, we should not have trivial thoughts in our minds. The speed should not be too fast and our pronunciation should not be slurred. W...

Re: Tathagatagarbha

The whole point , QQ, i guess, is how Nichiren saw what is Daimoku and the Gohonzon. He taught the all buddhism (theory and practice) were encapsulated in the Daimoku and Gohonzon. you can't ignore it was and is revolutionary and that in it there is profound meanings that i (maybe we all) can't und...

Everything you are saying is simply incorrect. ...Why am I so certain? Because I 'learned it from you reading your posts. You better make up your mind. First response is a straw man ..

Re: NMHRK is a mantra or not

I am not going to tell anyone who disagrees they are "wrong," but personally I consider Dharani, Mantra, Daimoku, and Nembutsu to be four seperate categories. Your millage may vary.

Re: NMHRK is a mantra or not

I think as long as someone chants Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, it is well enough for them to view it as what they like, and as long as the meaning is still fully there, they have got it down. Whether one sees it as a mantra or chant may not matter, because they may have the same definition for both a mantr...

Re: if everything is upaya(means) what is daimoku ?

In Tiantai and Tendai, this teaching is interpreted to expansively embrace the immeasurable upaya. Nichiren, however, interpreted this to say, once the Essential is revealed, there is no need for the immeasurable upaya. I think this is the point where Nichiren and Tendai diverge. It's an important ...
