Re: Who or what is the Eternal Buddha?

Nichiren's identity can not be doubted. "My words (which have been predicted concerning conviction of Honge Jogyo may sound very boastful, but they were intended for the sake of helping the realization of Buddha's prophecy.... At any rate, who shall be qualified to be Honge Jogyo other than Nichiren...

Nichiren is clear! Here are some passages from three of five of his major works: From the "Kai Moku Sho", written on Sado Island: "The Kegon and Shingon Schools established Vairocana and the Great Sun Buddha instead of Sakyamuni Buddha as the object of worship respectively.

I agree with all your passages But like our Master said In the first quote of our Master. “Lord Sakyamuni Buddha attained enlightenment longer than goyakugintengo Think about that.

Re: Wikipedia on the Eternal Buddha with commentary

I explained elsewhere. You can repeat yourself ad infinitum but I refuse to respond again and again and again. Read the Gosho and Lotus Sutra. You are ignorant of what the Supreme Votary says. "Shakyamuni Buddha and the written words of the Lotus Sutra are two different things, but their heart is o...

So all this talk of the Eternal Buddha and no one addresses my inquiry as to the fact that The Lotus Sutra reveal that Lord Sakyamuni Buddha attained Buddhahood at a specific time...it's a long time ...a very long time but it is finite. So we look at the Teachings and the Gosho and especially at Th...

Re: Nichiren admonishes his errant disciples, even those who chanted Namu Myoho renge kyo despite some peoples assertion

I'm sorry but Nichiren taught the Lotus as exception...the words match the meaning. Not only that but likewise the words of the Supreme Votary, I believe. That is precisely why there is disunity, everyone fails to take the words as the meaning. Mark Mark You never commented on Nichiren explaining o...
