Contributions my opinion

Contributions should go to spreading the Lotus Sutra and to sustain the poor and humble preachers of the Law, not for the exorbitant salaries and land acquisition of leaders, priests, or organizations. Likewise, you yourself may build a temple or commission the translation and distribution of the documents of our faith. You may arrange and print your own Sutra books as long as they accord with the teachings and you may print and mount or obtain pre-mounted copies of Nichiren inscribed Gohonzon to bestow upon your converts. If you are a votary of the Lotus Sutra, one who has grasped the essence of the sutra, you may perform the Eye Opening Ceremony on the object of devotion, or you may have a reliable Nichiren priest or layperson perform the Ceremony. Lastly, you may teach your converts how to perform the Ceremony [if they too have grasped the Sutra's essence].
