Mark: Dave, you imply that the Nichiren Shoshu is the completed building while the Lotus Sutra and the Gosho are merely a scaffolding or implying that that the Nichiren Shoshu is the moon while the Lotus Sutra and the Gosho are fingers pointing at the moon."
Dave: You are inventing nonsense here. I said nothing like this and you know that perfectly well. Nichiren Shoshu is a direct extension of the will of the Daishonin and the "completed building" is Kosen Rufu.
Mark: David, I have never met you so your words are all I have to rely on. You wrote on the aol boards on 5/12:
"I am trying to explain it in a simple way, as an analogy. Clearly the Lotus Sutra and the Gosho is not explicit enough in today's world or there would be unity at least among Nichiren Buddhists. I am explaining about protocol because that is a way of explaining the idea of people being "in agreement." That is what is lacking today." -- Dave
Clearly, you imply that something is lacking in the scrolls of the Sutra (which includes Gohonzon) and authentic writings of Nichiren Daishonin. I am not inventing nonsense. I am using your own words to draw my conclusion. Besides it is general knowledge that Taisekeji teaches, "The Daishonin said that but meant this."
You talk about "objective protocol" but you misunderstand the meaning of objective protocol in the context of the Lotus Sutra and teachings of Nichiren. The Lotus Sutra states again and again, "This Sutra" (Myoho renge kyo or Law) which is the "objective protocol". The Daishonin states again and again that the Lotus Sutra, Gohonzon, and Eternal Buddha is the objective protocol. The objective protocol (or the true meaning of Buddhism) lies in following the Scrolls of the Sutra and writings of Nichiren Daishonin and not on the doctrines invented by the priests of Taisekeji. That is why the Daishonin inscribed the Gohonzon. The Gohonzon is the objective protocol and not the arbitrary opinions of the priests of Taisekeji.
The reason for the disunity in the Daishonin's Buddhism is not because everyone won't follow the protocol of Taisekeji which is based on a forged mandala and forged writings. It is precisely because the Taisekeji protocol is insane that no one with a wit of sense will follow it. It was created by devils, destroys the Lotus Sutra and non-Nichiren Shoshu Gohonzons, and the entire import of the Daishonin's teachings. The cause of disunity is Taisekeji itself. Not having a clear mirror (an authentic Gohonzon), you can not see Taisekeji's ugly face.
You have a blind faith in the Ita Mandara [DaiGohonzon], the transfer documents, and the High Priests. Such unsupported beliefs have clouded your senses. Why is Taisekeji always at the center of divisiveness? It is actual proof of Taisekaji's false teachings.
In a general sense, people may indeed be the Eternal Buddha Shakayamuni but not people who destroy the teachings.
