Re: how changes affect us in Nichiren Shonin's denominations

So I’m done with this. Unto other changes made to what Nichiren taught. And did not teach. Unfortunately these changes are so ingrained now sheeple refuse to allow for doubt. They are told if they question it’s slander. Like what I was accused of for discussing namu issues. I think it might be part ...

Re: how changes affect us in Nichiren Shonin's denominations

If this is true

I heard the gakki dropped namu altogether in gongyo.

If that’s true. Well

So is it true?

Re: how changes affect us in Nichiren Shonin's denominations

Is their anybody out there that can explain to me this. Why is it people write down nam MyoHo RenGe Kyo and tell you to chant like this, and the say no one is dropping the u kanji.

I mean this is like right out of double think 1984.

Re: Who or what is the Eternal Buddha?

So that was a long post tkp. So you think Nichiren somehow implied that He was the Eternal Buddha. ? Cause that’s what I got from your post.

Re: Let's Discuss - Is Nichiren Hombutsu?

If one does not have the predicate wisdom to assure Nichiren's status than one can only deny Nichiren is Hombutsu through doubt. s) Only problem is Nichiren Shonin never in any shape or form even alluded to the fact that He was Honbytsu. This was produced hundreds of years after His passing in one ...

Re: how changes affect us in Nichiren Shonin's denominations

It was a straight forward question. No characters are dropped. That is no Kanji is dropped. It's already been shown to you Did you ever chant namu during soka gakki NSA gongyo? I know that you spent some years with soka gakki why I'm asking. Different paths and schools will chant differently, diffe...

Re: how changes affect us in Nichiren Shonin's denominations

What character is being dropped minobu? What's the difference between a Kanji character and a sound? In Nichiren Shoshu we chant both nam (the majority) and namu in certain times during gongyo. No Kanji character is dropped. What in the above do you have difficulty understanding? Ok you cannot ask:...

in a nutshell MyoHo RenGe Kyo is the Title of the Lotus Sutra.. Namu MyoHo RenGe Kyo is the entity. it's like the devotional aspect is the key for the Title to become a Living Lord Guru Sakyamuni Buddha inside you. you can toss the whole thing away if your think The Eternal Buddha is someone other t...

Re: how changes affect us in Nichiren Shonin's denominations

No characters are dropped Are you purposely being dense? No characters are dropped dense? because we know for sure people blurred out the U .. when you chant do you focus on Namu as being there or do you just nam and don't bother with the U..like it is not even on your mind at all ? anyway my quest...

Re: how changes affect us in Nichiren Shonin's denominations

if you drop the secound kanji character in Nam U

like just see the first Kanji character and never see the other one...

would you get the exact meaning as Nichiren Shonin wished to have us understand...like the one kanji alone tells the same thing ????
