Re: Wikipedia on the Eternal Buddha with commentary

Some mis-teach the principle of the equality of the Buddha and the common mortal because they misunderstand the principle of the general and the specific. They sometimes teach that the common mortal is equal to the Buddha and sometimes that the common mortal is superior (that we are the original te...

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...

Re: Who or what is the Eternal Buddha?

buddhahood through direct or inverse relationship. the above quote...what do you mean by direct or inverse relationships? To paraphrase when one slanders the sutra they forge a bond with it and are bound to be saved by it. There are goshos and LS passages on this. Once one hears this sutra the lotu...

variations in doctrine isn't proof of doubt. this assumes people know your perspective and understanding it succinctly refute it as false. you are casting judgement against more people than could possibly understand that there is a variation in these teachings. Not only does this violate basic reas...

Re: What is the Kempon Hokke?

So was this sect created after Nichiren Shonin passed away? so did Nichi-ju ever meet Nichiren Shonin? Also does Kempon Hokke have any Gohonzon inscribed by Nichiren Shonin ? If not ,does it have a signature of someone inscribed somewhere on it ? It was founded 100 years after nichiren Daishonin ok...

One more thing. Nichiren spoke extensively about the various translation of Sutras and commentaries. For example, in The Selection of the Time, he writes: I"n studying the teachings of Buddhism, apart from the distinctions between Hinayana and Mahayana, provisional and true, and exoteric and esoteri...

Re: Wikipedia on the Eternal Buddha with commentary

The further you go in exactly pinpointing what is meant by the term, “eternal”, the more you will discover that any relative concept of “Eternal Buddha” doesn’t mean anything. This isn’t to say that there is no eternal Buddha. But, it’s like trying to define space in terms of how much can be contai...

The bodhisattva Maitreya and the others said to the Buddha: “World-Honored One, these worlds are immeasurable, boundless—one cannot calculate their number, nor does the mind have the power to encompass them.

However, no exact definition of the Eternal Buddha is defined in the Lotus Sutra, which was also revealed by Siddhartha Gautama; t...

Mark, Shakabuku other schools in public to poach their practitioners by instilling doubt is just that. Why not help create a connection to the lotus for those who don't have one. With your superior practice you should have plenty of followers, more so than the SGI attracts. Or better yet prove how ...
