True diversity in the Nichiren faith [compared to the Soka Gakkai]

Regarding the Three Treasures and Three Great Secret Laws expounded by Nichiren, there are no differing points of view among his disciples and believers. How many Daimoku to chant, which Gohonzon to utilize, having or not having a statue of Shakyamuni Buddha and/or Nichiren Daishonion, how many times a day we recite the 2nd and 16th Chapters of the Sutra, whether we recite the Sutra in english or Japanese, when, how, and if to perform the peaceful and/or forceful practices, how much or if to donate, what to read [other than the Lotus Sutra and writings of Nichiren Daishonin], to hold or not to hold, or to participate in meetings or not to participate, is up to the individual. Our politics too are far more diverse than those found in the Soka Gakkai.
