Lying Pedro Ramos states I'm taking a vacation on other people's dime

For the record, in the 9 years since I've been blogging and preaching the Lotus Sutra Buddhism of Nichiren, I've received one donation for twenty dollars from Phillip Brett [despite my protestations]. I have distributed several thousand Sutra books and almost a hundred Tradition of Nichiren Doctrine books for free, and bought 41 beautiful acres in the Adirondacks for the future Renge Kyo temple.

  1. BTW the last vacation I took was 4 years ago.

    3. You don't seem to grasp the simple reality that I am not a Buddhist, 3-1/2 years chant free, no looking back.

      The conclusion from researching the teaching of your fascist-monk-master (Remember, Honmon-no-kaidan – The establishment of the ordination platform of the Lotus Sutra [national Kaidan] by imperial edict and Shogunal decree - AKA - A State Sponsored Religion ) would have to be - Atheism.

      All the swearing suits you just fine faceless man.

    5. no pretor... your statement is a strong verification that o have a very shallow weak understanding of the teachings. what u see in the world/ sgi/nst/shu is not the the lotus sutra being upheld , but slandered. the sword cuts both ways. if the faith and practice is correct it leads to enlightenment = buddha hood. if it is slandered or used for everything it censors , it leads to a deeper delusion. don't blame nichiren , the buddha, or eagle peak for your bad karma. also understanding without faith is worthless. where ever you came from is your problem. what we see in the world is not the lotus sutra being upheld, but instead being slandered. shame on u ! because u had a bad exp with some cult and your faith is weak and incorrect , and your understanding perverse you can't experience the joy of the law. informed , my ass. you are just another stupid common mortal in the latter day who slanders the law. fuck off !

      Delete
    6. Greg, you could've just said "understanding without faith is worthless", that's enough to understand your hole persona. I go for "understanding that challenges faith is priceless", hence, no shame whatsoever!
      Plus, I can't complain about my current and past circumstances on many important levels, so, yeah, so much for "bad karma" and "stupid common mortal in the imaginary days of the law"! (it's all in your head Greg, no one else cares).

      We have an expression for your role on this blog in the UK: Brown-nosing Mark.

      Delete
  5. If you are so " well informed ", Pedro - why would you assume circumstances are a reflection of one's faith and practice of the correct teaching ? Did you skip reading the Gosho ? I ask because your confidence related to demeaning Mark and Greg is cringe worthy--- in the context of Nichiren's teachings.

    2. Looks like this blog post has my name on it, so Kevin, if my demeaning of Mark and Greg is cringe worthy, Greg's bellow the belt attacks and constant swearing are praise worthy I would suppose? (insert votary of the LS nonsense here).

      Which Gosho should I be reading, can I suggest 'Two Nichiren Texts' from the English Tripitaka collection? http://www.bdk.or.jp/document/dgtl-dl/dBET_TwoNichirenTexts_2003.pdf .These are not only the closest one can get to a non-sectarian reading of Nichiren, but also the only two texts worth preserving by the Library's own standard, a representation of Nichiren's highly politicized writings where he put's forward a vision of elevating his own religious brand to a national Kaidan level in detriment of the Tendai school (of which he was an ordained priest), Shingon and his direct rivals that should be 'cut off' from any government privilege. These are Nichiren's official correspondence, his plea with the Kamakura/Kyoto authorities and all the rest (the voluminous writings on Nichiren) are nothing but an effort of self promotion/preservation.

      No wonder SGI/NST will include just about anything that has Nichiren's name slapped on it, all they want is a pretty book to profit from and keep the masses busy with fluff.

      Religious Nationalism, it is what it is, no wonder he was cut short by the authorities thanks to his grandiose delusion.

  6. Much to your chagrin, 35,000,000 people chant the Daimoku despite his having been "cut short" by the authorities. You, Pedro, on the other hand, will not even be a footnote in history.

    1. Dear Blog readers, it looks like Mark, who runs an Anti-SGI publication online, just incorporated Ikeda's static 12M (1979) figure into his own headcount.
      If we are to guessimate an actual figure, we can by discounting 12M Gakkai followers, take away 5-10M who tried Nam(u)-myoho-renge-kyo and gave it up, and we're left in the region of 15-20M people give or take. That is not a lot by any reasonable standard.

      I can also infer from Mark Rogow's comment, that he clings to this juvenile idea of fame and fortune, thinking that by becoming an online proponent for the teaching of this 13th century intolerant Tendai Monk, he will leave a permanent mark in this world.

      You're all being taken for a ride here.

      - Stick to the day job Mark!

  7. You are a particularly ignorant ichhantika. According to Adherents.com, in Japan alone, there are 31,427,3102 Nichiren adherents. Bye silly icchantika.

  8. Oh, please. By his own account, Nichiren was an ordained NEMBUTSU priest - that's why he reserved his most vehement vitriol for that sect. So typical. Read "Letter from Sado" once - in it, Nichiren totally cops to having been a Nembutsu priest. And he stole their chassis AND their magic chant (the Nembutsu folks chant nam-myoho-renge-kyo along with nam-Amida-Butsu, you know), so naturally he'd then say they were The Worst. Nothing worse for a copy than having the original sitting right there - SOMEbody's bound to notice!

    "The Kamakura reformers were above all concerned with questions of personal salvation, ...and they sought simpler, surer religious ways that were accessible to everyone, whether priest or peasant. In Pure Land and Nichiren teachings, for example, this meant an emphasis on faith and simplified ritual: faith in Amida and chanting the nembutsu in the case of Pure Land, faith in the Lotus Sutra and chanting the title of that sutra in Nichiren." - Robert S. Ellwood and Richard Pilgrim, "Japanese Religion", 1985, p. 77.

    See? Same same.

    4. Doris, since Mark and Minion lack objectivity to answer my questions, how many people do you think chant or ever chanted the Daimoku of the LS on board of the ISS?, or how many Mandalas do you think they have enshrined at CERN, Switzerland?, L.I.G.O.?, NASA?, ESA?

  9. Pedro is amazingly confident in making pronouncements over matters he is obviously not capable of comprehending.

    >>"I can also infer from Mark Rogow's comment, that he clings to this juvenile idea of fame and fortune, thinking that by becoming an online proponent for the teaching of this 13th century intolerant Tendai Monk, he will leave a permanent mark in this world.

    Pedro's personal opinions are irrelevant. Period. He not only has an arsenal of misinformation about Nichiren and Mark's devotion to sharing Nichiren's true teachings, but he is only bent on defaming Mark-- most likely the response of a wounded ego!

  10. I would not go to any temple which was built by a man who wrote the words in this blog, makes me want to save a copy of this blog so I can post it on a sign that I would have made right before the turnoff to your driveway - that way people could be warned about what kind of a person you are - not one who chants or practices actual Buddhism. Don't worry, I will do that right now, save these files and make sure your name is attached, so that any time you try to found a cult of your own, people will know what kind of Buddhism they're following.

  11. An actual Buddhist should be able to discuss the teachings rather than slander for the sake of slander.
