Nichiren's pagoda.

The Nichiren Shoshu and SGI response to the clear canon of Nichiren Daishonin and the lucid arguments of his faithful disciples, is “Montei” or "Teachings Hidden in the Depths."

Nichiren Daishonin discussed this principle in such Goshos as the Opening of the Eyes, The Selection of the Time, and On Repaying Debts of Gratitude He taught that he revealed all the important teachings hidden in the depths of the Lotus Sutra, ie: The Three Great Secret Laws, and "now, there is nothing left to reveal." Once the pagoda was completed by Nichiren Daishonin, it is our merit and virtue to praise, admire, and maintain it for future generations, not to tear it down while building cheap imitations.

We preserve the magnificent Lotus Sutra pagoda in two ways: By living the teachings as revealed by Nichiren Daishonin and by pointing out the shoddy craftmanship and substandard foundation of the Nichiren Shoshu and SGI pagoda.
