Next [to go down in flames]

SGI will no longer dialogue or debate because they have never overturned one of our points on the Lotus Sutra, the teachings of Nichiren Daishonin, the Soka Gakkai, or Daisaku Ikeda. All they can hope for is to succeed in closing the Eagle Peak Blog, as they have with the Lotus Sutra Revealing the Original Buddha blog and the Kempon Hokke Beliefnet forum [so no one will be privy to their defeat].

Soka Lion, Clown Hidden, Top Senior Leader, Watcher [Ian McIlraith], Daniel, Stephanie, Loris, CL, Patrick, Anonymous 1,2,3 and so on, Nichiren Buddhist, and many others have all gone down in flames due to their temerity, warped faith, and shallow study.


  1. To be fair Mark not all Anons are the same :) Some of us just don't particularly like the the internet spotlight full stop...lool and even shun Social Media for more mundane things. And some if us are actually quite supportive, are we not? :)

  2. Soka gakai International s doing nothing about the fukushima mess in japan . There areb 3 meltdowns still happening and things are getting worse.

    Abe just started a mox reactor at sendai. Reactor 3 at fukushima went up in a nuckear explosion because it was burning the lethal uranium plutonium mixture called mox. The most dangerous reactors known are mox reactors. There is a volcano close to sendai. Japan is getting hit by rashes of dangerous earthquakes recently. Abes ldp is allied with new komeito. How can a so called buddhist organization allow thiw to happen?

    Fukushima is handsdown the most radioactive place on earth now. Tokyo a city of 20 million people is only 150 miles from fukushima. Tokyo japan drinking water is now 24 percent more radioactive than it is in fukushima even though the cores are still melting at fukushima.

    Fukushima fallout is now the equivalent of 10000 nuclear bombs or more from the explosions, the ongoing meltdowns, and the fuelpool fires. It has released hundreds of times more fallout than chernobyl. It is killing the pacific ocean. Thyroid cancers , mostly kids in california and japan are going through the roof. The only thing that can cause this cancer is the nuclear fallout from fukushima.

    85 percent of the children born in belarus, a country of 10 million that got most of the chernobyl fallout, now have heart defects. That is just 30 years after chernobly. How can the buddhist organization SGI orvsoka gakkai international that calls itself spriritual , has its own political party in japan called the new komeito that is allied with abes liberal democratic party, allow abe to start a mox reactor close to a volcanoe with a bunch of earthquakes going on. What is sgi really about?

  3. Excuse the Christian phrase in the Buddhist blog but it is very appropriate. Nichiren,Shakyamuni and the ancient Buddha of the 3 bodied Tathagata in Kuon Ganjo that is omnipresent would also agree with what Jesus says in the gospel of Matthew 7:16-20King James Version (KJV)

    "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them"

  4. Hi anonymous. Just as in every facet of society there are good nd bad people, so too here. Thanks for your observation

  5. Hi Jewel. There was very little of Taoism and Brahmanism and even Confucianism that Nichiren agreed with. what makes you think that he would agree with Christianity? Least of all would Nichiren agree with a Religion that denied the mutual possession of the Ten Worlds.

  6. Nichiren is bigger than that. He recognised universal truth for what it is no matter where it came from or who said it

  7. What Nichiren are you reading? There is one source according to Nichiren:

    "The deeper the roots, the more luxuriant the branches. The farther the source, the longer the stream. All sutras other than the Lotus Sutra have shallow roots and short streams, while the p.941Lotus Sutra has deep roots and a distant source. That is why the Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai stated that the Lotus Sutra would survive and spread even in the evil latter age."

  8. Thats because the LS recognizes truth where it sees it. That's what's great about the Lotus sutra regardless who said it. Truth has no borders or restrictions, it speaks for itself, it can't be muzzled

  9. Truth however may be relative or absolute. Nichiren always made the distinction. Too many mistake fiction for truth, partial or provisional truths for complete and perfect truth. In order to be considered a follower of Nichiren, I maintain that it is vital to thoroughly repudiate partial truths and establish the superiority of the Lotus Sutra. the Lotus Sutra is not an ecumenical text:

    The Lotus Sutra is not an ecumenical scripture. I could debate this point and win even if I were battered and beaten with nose and ears cut off as the martyr Nikkyo.

    Also, there is no faith and practice of the Lotus Sutra in the Latter Day without Nichiren Daishonin. It is thanks to Nichiren Daishonin that we have faith in the Lotus Sutra and over thirty million people are chanting and spreading the Daimoku (granted, not all of whom have the same faith as Nichiren). Many criticize Nichiren but do they have thirty million followers reciting the Daimoku and Lotus Sutra daily thanks to THEIR bodily reading of the Lotus Sutra?

    The votaries of the Lotus Sutra fight: The armies of Mara (Emma), the enemies of the Lotus Sutra known as delusion; ecumenicists who deny the exclusive faith and practice of the Lotus Sutra; those who deny the exalted position of Shakyamuni Buddha; and lastly, the ignorant laymen, priests, and the rulers of our respective countries who persecute the votaries of the Lotus Sutra.

    Let us look at the word narcissism:

    1). Excessive love or admiration of oneself. See synonyms at conceit.

    2). A psychological condition characterized by self-preoccupation, lack of empathy, and unconscious deficits in self-esteem.

    3). Erotic pleasure derived from contemplation or admiration of one's own body or self, especially as a fixation on or a regression to an infantile stage of development.

    4). The attribute of the human psyche characterized by admiration of oneself but within normal limits.

    Conceit is a near synonym: 1. A favorable and especially unduly high opinion of one's own abilities or worth.

    Here is what Nichiren says about conceit:

    The Mongol Envoys

    "I CAN hardly express my joy at learning of your safe return from Kamakura. And I have received your news about the beheading of the Mongol envoys. It is indeed a pity that, while the priests of the Nembutsu, True Word, Zen, and Precepts schools, who are the enemies of our country, did not have their heads cut off, the innocent Mongol envoys have been beheaded. Those who are unaware of the particulars of the matter will no doubt think that I say this out of conceit because my prophecy has been fulfilled. Yet during this period of more than twenty years, this is what I have been privately lamenting about day and night to my disciples, and what I have publicly declared time and again."

  10. continued...

    On Curing Karmic Disease:

    "The Great Teacher Chi-tsang of Chia-hsiang-ssu temple was among the most outstanding scholars in China. He was the founder of the Three Treatises school, and lived on Mount Hui-chi in Wu. Believing that none could equal him in knowledge, he raised the banner of his pride to its highest. He challenged the Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai to discuss the meaning of the passage that states, "Among the sutras I have preached, now preach, and will preach, [this Lotus Sutra is the most difficult to believe and the most difficult to understand]

    In the debate Chi-tsang was soundly defeated and thereupon renounced his misguided beliefs. In order to expiate his serious offense of slander of the correct teaching and of those who uphold it, he gathered more than one hundred eminent scholars and begged the Great Teacher T’ient’ai Chih-che to lecture to them. Chi-tsang used his body as a bridge for the Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai to climb [onto the preaching platform], supporting T’ien-t’ai’s feet with his head. Moreover, he served T’ien-t’ai for seven years, cutting firewood and drawing water for him. He ceased giving lectures of his own, dispersed his followers, and in order to purge himself of his great conceit, refrained from reciting the Lotus Sutra. After the Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai’s death, Chi-tsang had an audience with the emperor of the Sui dynasty to pay his respects. As he was leaving, he clutched His Majesty’s knees and tearfully bade him farewell. Sometime later, Chi-tsang looked into an old mirror and, seeing his reflection, condemned himself for his past errors. All these many acts of penitence were done to eradicate his karmic disease."

    On Omens:

    "The priests of Nembutsu today are exactly like the evil monks mentioned in the above sutra. Moreover, the great conceit of the school’s teachers exceeds that of Devadatta a hundred, thousand, ten thousand, million times. I will briefly describe the strangeness of the True Word school. Its priests paint a picture of the nine honored ones seated on an eight- petaled lotus in the center of the Womb Realm. Then they climb onto this picture, and stepping on the faces of the Buddhas, conduct their ceremony of anointment. It is as if they were trampling on the faces of their own parents or treading on their emperor’s head. Such priests as these fill the entire country and have become the teachers of both high and low. No wonder the nation faces ruin!" How Those Initially Aspiring to the Way Can Attain Buddhahood through the Lotus Sutra:

    "Question: The Flower Garland school propounds the doctrine of the five teachings and declares all the other sutras to be inferior, and the Flower Garland Sutra, superior. The True Word school puts forth the doctrine of the ten stages of the mind, declaring that all the other sutras, being exoteric teachings, are inferior, while the True Word school, because it represents the esoteric teachings, is superior. The Zen school rejects all the sutras as belonging to the realm of written teachings and asserts “a separate transmission outside the sutras, independent of words or writing.” Because enlightenment, they say, is gained merely by sitting and facing the wall, the Zen school alone is superior. The Pure Land school sets forth two kinds of practices, correct and sundry. The Lotus Sutra and the various other sutras are rejected as belonging to the category of sundry practices, and hence one is urged to “discard, close, ignore, and abandon” them. The three Pure Land sutras, on the other hand, they claim, are adapted to the people’s capacity and are wonderful sutras belonging to the realm of correct practices. Thus each school in its conceit maintains its own biased attachment. But which one represents the true intention of Shakyamuni Buddha?"


  11. The Lotus Sutra says:

    'Cease, cease! No need to speak. My dharma is subtle and hard to imagine. Those of overweening pride, If they hear it, shall surely neither revere it nor believe in it." (Lotus Sutra Chapter 2)

    and the moment the Buddha was about to reveal the Wonderful Dharma:

    "While he was speaking these words, in the assembly bhiksus, bhikshunis, upasakas, and upasikas to the number of five thousand straightway rose from their seats and, doing obeisance to the Buddha, withdrew. For what reason? This group had deep and grave roots of sin and overweening pride, imagining themselves to have attained and to have borne witness to what in fact they had not. Having such faults as these, therefore they did not stay. The World-Honored One, silent, did not restrain them.

    At that time the Buddha declared to Shariputra: "My assembly has no more branches and leaves, it has only firm fruit. Shariputra, it is just as well that such arrogant ones as these have withdrawn. Now listen well, for I will preach to you." (ibid. Chapter 2).
    Dharmajim writes;

    “Now, weave together all of these observations. Imagine you are a disciple of the Buddha. Imagine you are a monk who has meticulously followed the vinaya, the complex code, or way of life, for Buddhist monastics. Now imagine that the Buddha announces that this code is a provisional teaching. I can understand why some monks would become offended, especially if they had generated a sense of self and personal achievement around this.

    “Or imagine that you had cultivated the ability to enter into rarefied meditative states, the higher dhyanas. This had taken years of dedication and practice. Now the Buddha says that this is a provisional teaching. I can understand why some who had invested so much time and effort into this practice might feel insulted. I can even believe that some of them would get up and leave the assembly.”

    The Lotus Sutra Chapter 7 states:

    "Bhikshus, when the Thus Come One knows of himself, that the time of his Nirvana has come, that the assembly is pure, that their faith and understanding are solid and firm, that they fully comprehend the Dharma emptiness and have deeply entered into Dhyana Samadhi, he will gather together the host of Bodhisattvas and Sound Hearers and speak this Sutra for them, saying, ‘there are not two vehicles by which extinction is attained. There is only the One Buddha Vehicle by which extinction can be attained.’"

  12. Nobody likes to be chastised or rebuked. There are those in the SGI who have been practicing for thirty or more years and have converted hundreds of people to the Gakkai and there are those in the Nichiren Shoshu who have a lot invested in the Daigohonzon and Nichiren as True Buddha. Then, there are others in the Nichiren Shu who follow Udana-in Nichiki, as a duckling follows it's mother. When we tell them to follow the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren, they turn red, they are afraid, and defensive, or they get up and leave.

    Are these not the conceited ones, the narcissistic ones who fail to believe the auspicious words of the Buddha and the sage Nichiren?

    The conceited will not debate the issues, thinking themselves too good to debate or too enlightened to even consider a rain challenge which they dismiss out of hand. The narcissistic spew venom from afar for fear of smudging their make-up or dirtying their hands.

    "If in some other region
    there are beings reverent and with faith beseeching,
    again I am in their midst
    to proclaim the unsurpassed Dharma,
    though you who do not hear this
    will say that I am extinct." (Lotus Sutra Chapter 16)

    Those that claim that Shakyamuni is not always present preaching the dharma, too, are conceited and narcissistic. Failing to believe that the Buddha only appears to pass on as an expedient, they wallow in delusion.

    "I do this lest, by always seeing me,
    they should beget hearts unrestrained and self-indulgent,
    be dissolute and only fixed upon the five forms of desire
    and thereby fall into evil ways."

    Those who think of themselves as Buddhas just as they are, merely by virtue of their being alive or merely by virtue of the organization they belong to, are like this, conceited and narcissistic.

    Now let me say something about poisoning the well and peeing in the soup. Perhaps there are those who will consider me narcissistic or conceited for what I am about to say:

    I am a filter in which the impurities in the Nichiren faith and practice are strained and removed. Citing the Lotus Sutra and the writings of Nichiren, my points are proven. All who proclaim the Lotus Sutra and Shakyamuni Buddha supreme will quickly reach the other shore. Those who deny the Lotus Sutra and Shakyamuni Buddha, are base and shallow.

    Nichiren Daishonin states:

    "I have made a vow. Even if someone says that he would make me the ruler of Japan on the condition that I give up the Lotus Sutra and rely upon the Amida Sutra for my salvation in the next life, or even if someone threatens me saying that he will execute my parents if I do not say 'Namu Amida-butsu,' and no matter how many great difficulties fall upon me, I will not submit to them until a man of wisdom defeats me by reason. Other difficulties are like dust in the wind. I will never break my vow that I will become the pillar of Japan, I will become the eyes of Japan, and I will become the great vessel of Japan." -- Kaimoku Sho (Opening the Eyes)

    I am not the first nor will I be the last to read the Lotus Sutra and the writings of Nichiren Daishonin, realize their truths and one's mission, and come to the same conclusions as Nichiren. Those who come later and share our beliefs (those who carefully study the Lotus Sutra and the writings of Nichiren Daishonin), I pray will be ever more faithful and wise in defending what the Buddha has entrusted to us.

    Nichiren teaches that now is the time to outlaw misleading religions and philosophies, not the time to bask in the pleasure of ten thousand prayers.

  13. "Those that claim that Shakyamuni is not always present preaching the dharma, too, are conceited and narcissistic. Failing to believe that the Buddha only appears to pass on as an expedient, they wallow in delusion."

    They don't fail to believe that Shakyamuni Buddha only appears to pass on as an expedient, they understand that Shakyamuni is temporal as their is no proof that his reward body is still enlightened. The reward body is forever changing like the manifest body. The 3 bodied Tathagata exists as potential within us all and can manifest in our lives through the mutual possession of the 10 worlds by chanting to an authentic Nichiren Gohonzon which is the body of the 3 bodied Tathagata

    Shakyamuni left his body thousands of years ago but the oneness he experienced with the 3 bodied Tathagata has been revealed to us in the embodiment of this entity in the Gohonzon by Nichiren who also was at one with the 3 body Tathagata that Shakyamuni revealed

    It is the 3 bodied Tathagatta always present preaching the dharma taking on the form of others that are cultivated enough for this entity of our higher self to manifest through

  14. in our Buddhism, all Three Bodies are without beginning and end.

    "Now [I wish to note this]. When the Mahāvairochana Sutra and the other Mahayana sutras speak of a Buddha “without beginning and without end,” they are speaking of the fact that the Dharma body of the Buddha is without beginning and without end. They do not mean that all three bodies of Buddha are without beginning and without end."

    "But they [the mistaken schools] regard his Dharma body as without beginning and without end, his reward body as with beginning but without end, and his manifested body as with beginning and with end."

    Then, please go to writings of Nichiren Daishonin II [] and plug the following into the search engine... without beginning or end body dharma reward manifest

      I have always agreed that all 3 bodies (3 truths) are without beginning and end. The common mortal has 3 bodies ( 3 truths) like the 3 bodied Tathagatta but the differences lies in the reward body and manifest body

      The state of the reward and manifest body of the common mortal is in a constant state of flux.

      The Dharma body of the common mortal is at same state of perfect harmonious equilibrium as 3 bodied Tathagata Thus come one

      Thus Come One the 3 bodied Tathagata body's are already in an eternal state of perfect harmonious equilibrium

      Common mortals such as Shakyamuni and Nichiren experienced oneness with Thus Come One through cultivation in their past lives

      Common mortals possess the mutual possession of the 10 worlds can experience oneness with Thus Come One 3 bodied Tathagata through cultivation; faith, study and practice on a temporary to a more permanent basis depending on our practice. Nichiren makes this accessible by inscription of the 10 world Gohonzon that is the simultaneity of cause and effect which means the result of what we desire to achieve 'Enlightenment" is already inherent in the process of the correct faith, study and practice

      Once we are on this path of realisation and understanding we are no longer ordinary common mortals as such but become extraordinary common mortals that are becoming more Buddha like.

      Special thanks to all the Buddas, Bodhisattvas, Lord Shakyamuni Buddha, Nichiren Daishonin and their votaries for making possible for those of us who have in the past, are at the moment and will suffer in the future in this Dark Age of Mappo for the hope that has been given unto us
