malcolm please have a look here

Cause correct me if I’m wrong but the middle way is saying it’s both existence and non existence. No. That is the third of the four extremes. That which arises dependently is free of all four extremes: existence, nonexistence, both, and neither. That’s the middle way, according to the Buddha and Na...

Re: Response to PadmaVonSamba

You don’t understand the middle way. You just fell into the third extreme, asserting that things both exist and do not exist. Rereading this.

Re: Non-exclusivist independent Nichiren Buddhism

Nichiren prolly saw this ...was disgusted that the con had gone to this level and created a vehicle that puts one in company with the gods and enlightened ones....if there are any ....
