Can Bodhisattvas of the Earth possibly be brainwashed? Can the brainwashed possibly be Bodhisattvas of the Earth?

Someone wrote, explaining why Ikeda accepted the priests doctrines for so long: “Ikeda wanted to “fight” and argue for the correctness of his views but he was over-ruled by the other leaders, and saw that any fight would lead to mass defections of members and could well be a victory for authoritarianism, so he gave in. The leaders and members simply were convinced that if the priests said it was so it was so.”

The Lion of Soka gave in to his subordinates? He cared about mass defections? Do puppets control the puppet master? Soka puppets had no powers of discernment and were brainwashed by the Nichiren Shoshu priests? Can Bodhisattvas of the Earth possibly be brainwashed? Can the brainwashed possibly be Bodhisattvas of the Earth?

All places where the devotees receive and keep the Lotus Sutra is a special place.

The SSA or Soka Singapore Association fails to heed Nichiren Daishonin and therefore, it is on the brink of self-destruction. Over what? A "temple", the Soka Peace Center.

Nichiren teaches:

"Dengyo lived at the end of the Middle Day of the Law, during the period described in the Great Collection Sutra as the age of building temples and stupas."

This age, however, is the age of the Essential Teachings....

"At that time the Buddha addressed Eminent Conduct and the host of other bodhisattvas: "The divine powers of buddhas are so infinite and boundless that they are beyond thought and expression. Even if I, by these divine powers, through infinite, boundless hundred thousand myriad kotis of asamkhyeya kalpas, for the sake of entailing it, were to declare the merits of this sutra, I should still be unable to reach the end of those [merits]. Essentially speaking, all the laws belonging to the Tathagata, all the sovereign, divine powers of the Tathagata, all the mysterious, essential treasuries of the Tathagata, and the very profound conditions of the Tathagata, all are proclaimed, displayed, revealed, and expounded in this sutra. Therefore you should, after the extinction of the Tathagata, wholeheartedly receive and keep, read and recite, explain and copy, cultivate and practice it as the teaching. In whatever land, whether it be received and kept, read and recited, explained and copied, cultivated and practiced as the teaching; whether in a place where a volume of the sutra is kept, or in a temple, or in a grove, or under a tree, or in a monastery, or in a lay devotee's house, in a palace or a mountain, in a valley or in the wilderness, in all these places you must erect a caitya and make offerings. Wherefore? You should know that [all] these spots are the thrones of enlightenment. On these [spots] the buddhas attain Perfect Enlightenment; on these [spots] the buddhas roll the wheel of the Law; on these [spots] the buddhas [enter] parinirvana." -- Lotus Sutra Chapter 21

Today, there are no designated special places to practice the Law, chant the Daimoku, worship the Gohonzon, Lotus Sutra, Buddha, and Nichiren Daishonin. All places where the devotees receive and keep the Lotus Sutra is a special place. 

The Sho Hondo was the most glaring example in the brief history of the Latter Age of designating a "special place" [before the time of the establishment of the High Sanctuary] and the Soka Gakkai continues to make similar mistakes in Washington DC, Atlanta, Singapore, and especially in Tokyo with the completed Ikeda Hall of the Great Vow. Can severe calamities fail to befall Washington, Atlanta, Singapore and Tokyo? Haven't these calamities already begun?

SGI's false rationale for advising its members to seek guidance from Joe Blow Territory Chief

"The Gohonzon doesn't speak" -- SGI leader

Nichiren teaches that the Gohonzon and the Lotus Sutra is itself the Buddha's Pure and Far Reaching Voice. I think we can add, the authentic writings of Nichiren.

The Nichikan Gohonzon only resembles a true Gohonzon

"...none of the Buddha images in the temples and pagodas of Japan, though their forms resemble that of the Buddha are really Buddhas in mind. Rather they have the minds of ordinary beings who live in the nine worlds." -- Nichiren

He goes on to say:

"The custom of revering ignorant teachers as though they were wise men began with this." 

"Mark, you are a very unhappy man with a lot of bitterness in your life"

"Mark, you are a very unhappy man with a lot of bitterness in your life. first the true BUDDHA for this time (all time) is NICHIREN DAISHONIN he said so himself and you know he did. You want to rat out a lot of very nice folks who have BUDDHIST meetings everywhere in their homes for the sake of KOSEN RUFU with a pure heart and only good will for their communities. we are not a sect at all , we are common lay sgi members and you hate that . YOU CAN NOT WIN read the GOSHO PLEASE ~al~

                         


                                     

With the SGI at the helm

Everyone loves a good rally. Tony Robbins has made tens of millions of dollars off feel good big and small rallies. SGI too puts on a great show for the members: Bands a playin’; motivational speakers, one after another; testimonials; banners and songs. “We are all Buddhas.” “SGI will make world peace a reality.” “Lets all destroy the evil Nikken sect.” But looking more closely (and one doesn’t need to look real close), the Emperor Ikeda and his minions, have no clothes. There is no substance. It is all smoke and mirrors or froth on the ocean. The bad thing is that in times of real crises, the members are lost, abandoned, and humiliated. The rally becomes a whisper of gossip and innuendo. “He is sick because he has weak faith.” “His wife left him because he never attended meetings.” “He is being punished for not following guidance.” The list goes on and on. The Lotus Sutra, Buddha Shakyamuni and Nichiren Daishonin, on the other hand, will never let you down. They will never abandon their children, they will ferry you across the great sea of suffering and will gently place you on the other shore. With the SGI at the helm, when you reach the last moment of your life, you will experience a myriad of regrets and sorrow. With Shakyamuni Buddha at the helm you will experience the joy of joys.

Kamatari Suggests the Fashioning of a Buddha Image by Nichiren [1275]

"I HAVE received two thousand coins from Musashi-bo Ennichi,1 whom you sent as a messenger. Kogyoku, the thirty-sixth in the line of sovereigns, was a woman. At that time, there was a minister named Iruka. He became so arrogant that he insanely took action to seize imperial power for himself. The empress, the princes, and others felt that this was outrageous, but they found themselves utterly powerless against him.

Then the princes Oe and Karu, deploring this state of affairs, consulted a court official named Nakatomi no Kamako, who said that he was convinced it was beyond human power to stop Iruka. He cited the example of Umako, and insisted that without the power of Shakyamuni Buddha, the lord of teachings, it would be impossible to stop him. Taking this to heart, they had an image of Shakyamuni Buddha fashioned and prayed to it, and in no time at all Iruka was struck down.

This man named Nakatomi no Kamako was later granted a new surname and became known as Fujiwara no Kamatari. He was appointed inner minister, bore the title of the rank Great Woven Cap, and was the founder of the present-day Fujiwara family. That image of Shakyamuni Buddha is the present-day object of devotion at Kofuku-ji temple. Thus Shakyamuni Buddha is the reason the emperor was emperor, the reason the minister was minister, and the reason this land of the gods became the land of the Buddha. Please understand this by comparing it with what I have written in my letter to Uemon no Tayu. The reason our country now faces the threat of subjugation to another nation is that people fail to pay the least attention to Shakyamuni Buddha. The power of the gods is also ineffective for this reason.

People have regarded the two of you as surely having already yielded, but you have acted in an admirable manner. You probably think this is solely due to the power of Shakyamuni Buddha and the Lotus Sutra. I believe this also. No words can express the promise of your next existence. From now on too, no matter what may happen, you must not slacken in the least. You must raise your voice all the more and admonish [those who slander]. Even if your life should be threatened, you must not falter in the least. 

shoninWith my deep respect,
Nichiren
The twenty-first day of the eighth month

SGI and NST fail to pay the least attention to Shakyamuni Buddha and therefore, they lack protection from the Buddhist gods, their wishes remain unfulfilled, and Japan faces certain ruin.

Defending the True Law leads to Buddhahood and rebirth in the realm of Buddha.

There are degrees of offense and degrees of merit. Smoking a joint on the New York subway will get you a violation while plotting and carrying out the murder of your spouse gets you life without parole. Hitting mud with your fist gets you dirty while hitting a rock with your fist gets you a fractured hand. Helping a little old lady across the street gets you a thank you while inventing a cure for leukemia gets you the Nobel Prize in medicine. In the realm of Buddhist Law, loving kindness leads one to the Brahma Heaven [repeated rebirth in the Realm of Rapture]. Defending the True Law leads to Buddhahood and rebirth in the realm of Buddha.
