"The unique honzon, symbol of faith and practice and presented by the apostle of the Buddha, cannot be disseminated indiscriminately."-- Laurel Rasplica Rodd commenting on Nichiren Daishonin's strict attitude for bestowing Gohonzon as taught in his letter, Reply to Niiama.*
Reply to Niiama was written to a faithful believer who requested that Nichiren bestow a Gohonzon on Oama Gozen, her mother in law and very close family friend of Nichiren Daishonin and his parents. Although Nichiren loved Oama as a valued friend and as one who embraced the Lotus Sutra for many years, he respectfully declined to bestow upon her a Gohonzon because her faith wavered when he was persecuted.
As I have stated on dozens of occasions, the Soka Gakkai and the Nichiren Shoshu give out their no-Honzons as gratuitously as Las Vegas hawkers give out escort fliers. This is another reason the Soka Gakkai and the Nichiren Shoshu are depraved organizations based not on Nichiren Daishonin's teachings but on the perverse teachings of the Nichiren Shoshu High Priests and Daisaku Ikeda.
