The sangha of perfect doctrine

“How does one hear, believe in and practice the perfect teaching to attain perfect enlightenment?” “Believing in the perfect teaching means to “awaken” faith through doctrine [of the Lotus Sutra] and make faith the basis of One’s practice.”  -- Nichiren quoting the Maka Shikan of Tientai

If the doctrine is flawed, faith is flawed. SGI and Nichiren Shoshu's doctrines are flawed. Believing that a living mentor or High Priest is required to attain Buddhahood is the most noxious poison for one's faith. Myoho renge kyo is the perfect doctrine. Shakyamuni Buddha and Nichiren Daishonin are the perfect teachers. Since we maintain perfect doctrine through the Sutra scrolls and writings of Nichiren Daishonin only, we are the perfect Sangha
