I caught the Nichiren Shoshu in yet another lie

"But in their hearts they wield a sword of distorted views, hastening here and there among their patrons and filling them with countless lies so as to keep them away from other priests or nuns." -- Nichiren

I caught the Nichiren Shoshu priests in yet another lie

>It still took days of traveling for the Daishonin and the group with

They forgot one reference, The Fairy Tale of The Devil King. Now thats a good one, Nichiren Daishonin was too weak to sign his document but not too weak to write a postscript and inscribe a signed Gohonzon. That is rich. Most amusing.


  1. Perhaps Dirham or a Nichiren Shoshu priest would care to respond.

  2. Please post this on ARBN, Mark. -- would love to see Alex and Julian's response there... and John Ayre's garbage pushed further down the board.

    Nothing Nichiren Shoshu reports about Nichiren's behavior near the end of his life matches the spirit Nichiren had clearly conveyed in his major writings. It's almost as though the licentious Taisekiji priests who pulled such an obvious stunt had no idea how an enlightened individual leaves this world-, meaning that they didn't have a reliable frame of reference. Such are the stupid errors made by those who abandon Shakyamuni Buddha. In my humble opinion.
