If Mr. Daisaku Ikeda is really as bad as some contributors
to a.r.b.n would have the world believe that, for me,
prooves at least one thing... if a cult at all,
far from being a personality cult, SGI is, in fact,
an anti-personality cult.
SGI is a strong, well organised, group of people actually
bringing about world peace in spite of the variety of
individuals that make it up.
How can that be?
Only because SGI is an organisation of common mortals,
ordinary human beings, united in love and faith in
the Lotus Sutra.
The simple fact that an organisation such as SGI exists
in our lifetime is a (rare) cause for joy.
"This, my land, remains safe and unharmed,...
My pure land is indestructible." --Lotus Sutra. Chapter 16.
Your friend and fellow memba', Kathy - "Queen of Da Nile" - Ruby,
would disagree with you here..... She claims that the Lotus Sutra has
lost its power in the Latter Day. How come you guys can't seem to get
your doctrine straight???? I mean you're so well organized and
AND....... If you are united in love and faith in the Lotus Sutra, you
must now be a memba' of a Shakaymuni Cult too. After all, who
preached the Lotus Sutra? Please don't tell us it was really Nichiren
in disguise. You were all too quick to post a warning about us being
membes of a Shakaymuni cult.
AND...... If you are united in love and faith in the Lotus Sutra, how
can you continue to advocate that Nichiren is the Eternal Buddha? I
mean, where is it in the Lotus Sutra that Shakaymuni predicts that the
Eternal Buddha is to appear in the Latter Age to spread the Dharma?
Have you ever read the ENTIRE Lotus Sutra?
SO THEREFORE...... if you claim to be united in love and faith with
the Lotus Sutra, but fail to practice as it teaches then you are ONE
I am astounded by the self deception that the Gakkai is capable of,
and the slander you stoop to in critisizing us who are trying to
spread the orthodox Dharma.
We rely on the Three Proofs that our founder and leader
in Mappo, Nichiren Daishonin, taught us. Documentary,
Theoretical and Actual. All our posts use the Three Proofs. None of
the Gakkai's posts use the Three Proofs.
All we are asking is for you to supply proof of the Gakkai's doctrine
using the Three Proofs. So far, in the last three years of this
online debate the Gakkai has failed to do so. Oh, don't get me wrong,
the Gakkai has responded, but with insults, abuse and slander... never
with doctrinal proof. Kathy even claims to have beaten me in debate
about the power of the Lotus Sutra. Of course she didn't beat me, all
she did was change the subject and say that we taught that the Daimoku
was not the primary practice, which is of course a complete lie and
fabrication. We chant the Daimoku morning and night. Anyways, its
all more lies and obfuscation to cover the truth. We supplied over
one hundred quotes and excerpts from the Gosho where Nichiren stated
unequivacably that it was the Lotus Sutra that we worship and saves us
in Mappo. When Kathy had her back to the wall she saught to change
the subject. Now you go and ADMIT the Gakkai is united in love and
faith in the Lotus Sutra.
The Gakkai is a psuedo-religion based on the teachings of Makaguchi,
Toda and Ikeda. There is little that the Gakkai actually has in
common with Nichiren, except that they coopted his Daimoku and
Gohonzon as a cloak for their real teachings. Makaguchi admitted that
he never wanted to be a Nichiren Shoshu priest becasue then he would
have to follow Nichiren Shoshu doctrine exactly without adding any of
his own *personal* ideas, which we know is the entire theory of value
creation. The Gakkai from its inception has been based on lies.
Go on Julian try and refute me using Sutra passage and Gosho passages.
Try. I doubt you can. I do expect you to insult and abuse me. You
have shown yourself perfectly capable of doing this in the past. Come
on Julian, I dare you to try and debate me using scriptural proof.
When you can't, and instead resort to insults then you will be
exposed. The entire arbn will know then that you cannot refute the
And Julian, please don't forget that it was Susan Starr who
started arbn. And just so you don't revise history, it was to
provide a forum for doctrinal debate and discussion. So far
we have seen little debate from any of the Gakkai, what we
have seen is plenty of insults.
I am waiting Julian.
