Even the lowly Nembutsu priests on Sado Island were more courageous than the Nichiren priests and high leaders of today.

We demand that the Soka Gakkai, the Nichiren Shoshu, and all Nichiren Sects pay allegiance to Shakyamuni Buddha and Nichiren Daishonin.

Failing to meet our demand, we call on Shakyamuni Buddha, Nichiren Daishonin and the Buddhist gods to summon the SGI, the Nichiren Shoshu, the Nichiren Shu, the HBS and all the sects of Kyoto, Tokyo, and throughout the world for a rain challenge or formal debate.

"So the sage Nichiren said to them, “We will decide whose teachings are correct through this prayer for rain." -- Letter of Petition for Yorimoto

"I have heard that, when the priest Ryokan knew I was far away in a distant province, he told everyone how he wished I would hasten to Kamakura so that he might debate with me and dispel the people’s doubts...

...What is more, when I actually did return to Kamakura, Ryokan shut his gates and forbade anyone to enter. At times, he even feigned illness, saying that he had caught a cold."-- Teaching, Practice, and Proof

Even the lowly Nembutsu priests on Sado were more courageous than the Nichiren priests and high leaders of today. They are even more cowardly than Ryokan.

  1. How can this become a formal, publicized demand?
