Re: I don't always agree with Rev. Tsuchiya, in fact he excommunicated me...

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 ...

So are many things in the past. Why are you trying to make them permanent? What satisfaction or benefit do you perceive from it? It is worse today. This is Mappo.

So you were excommunicated from the Kempon hokke? Or was it sgi? Or both? Both. However, in asserting the succession or transmission through the scrolls of the Sutra (and writings of Nichiren) I am in complete accord with the founder of the Kempon Hokke, Nichiju Shonin and their martyrs such as Nik...

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

Nichiren is most clear about capacity in the following passage from Reply yo Lord Matsuno or the Fourteen Slanders Gosho. “But for your person as a householder the essence is for you to chant ‘Namu Myoho renge kyo with no other thought and also make offerings to the monks. And also, if it is in acco...

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...

“Many such examples of slander are also found among Nichiren’s disciples and lay believers.” “They entirely look up to groups of icchantikas and rely on them as leaders and, reverencing slanderers against the Dharma, make them national teachers. Taking up the Classic Filial Piety of Confucius, they ...

We can conclude that the Nichiren Shoshu and to a greater or lesser extent, the Soka Gakkai still upholds these aberrant doctrines.

...but I hear, he himself left the the (modern) Kempon Hokke for their aberrant principles and practices. Either way, He wrote presciently: "Let's do Shakubuku to SGI and Nichiren Shoshu to save their believers. Nichiren Shoshu insists that the teachings of the Buddha Shakyamuni are useless and that...

What is the Kempon Hokke?

"KEMPON HOKKE" means "revealing the Original Buddha of the Lotus Sutra." It is the orthodox Hokke (Lotus Sutra) sect, as established by Nichiren Daishonin in Japan. The Kempon Hokke-USA is the overseas lay organization of the Kempon Hokke of Japan. Kempon Hokke of Japan derives its teachings directl...

Re: The So-called Taisekiji Succession Documents

The transmission is a textual transmission. The Banner of transmission is the Gohonzon. The doctrinal Transmission is the Lotus Sutra and writings of Nichiren. No one stressed the texts more than Nichiren. Both texts and people coexist. Only in Zen and the Nichiren Shoshu is there asserted a mythica...

More on the transfer documents from the Kempon Hokke Vision 1995 For some reason, Nikô and Nitcho were not present at Nichiren Shônin's death or funeral. The probable reason for their absence was the difficulty, in those days, to easily and quickly communicate with outlying areas. Nikô and Nitchô we...
