"The offerings of flowers and incense really means the offerings of evergreens and incense." -- SGI member
"Shakyamuni Buddha and Nichiren Daishonin said flowers but they meant evergreens." -- NST member
"Whether you chant the Buddha’s name, recite the sutra, or merely offer flowers and incense, all your virtuous acts will implant benefits and roots of goodness in your life." -- Nichiren
"Offered all kinds of flowers...as alms to the Treasure Tower" -- Lotus Sutra Chapter 11
SGI and NST members are brainwashed cult members who fail to take the Buddha and Nichiren at their word. They lack faith and they are arrogant. Are they something else?
