On “Montei” or the Teachings Hidden in the Depths.

The Nichiren Shoshu and SGI response to the clear canon of Nichiren Daishonin and the lucid arguments of his faithful disciples, is “Montei” or "Teachings Hidden in the Depths."

Nichiren Daishonin discussed this principle in such Goshos as the Opening of the Eyes, The Selection of the Time, and On Repaying Debts of Gratitude He taught that he revealed all the important teachings hidden in the depths of the Lotus Sutra, ie: The Three Great Secret Laws, and "now, there is nothing left to reveal." Once the pagoda was completed by Nichiren Daishonin, it is our merit and virtue to praise, admire, and maintain it for future generations, not to tear it down while building cheap imitations.

We preserve the magnificent Lotus Sutra pagoda in two ways: By living the teachings as revealed by Nichiren Daishonin and by pointing out the shoddy craftmanship and substandard foundation of the Nichiren Shoshu and SGI pagoda.

  1. Bwahahahaha! So your "teaching hidden in the depths" is to say that SGI builds crappy pagodas? Get a life! You should be chanting, not wasting your time writing opinion pieces as if they were fact. Lookit me, I can hit "Post" and call an organization a bad name. Maybe I should make a blog called "Vulture Valley Blog" and just spend 14 hours a day criticizing how corrupt Habitat for Humanity is and how that evil Jimmy Carter is forcing poor people to live in houses. What an evil man! Don't you agree with me? If you write this blog, you probably do. Throw away your conterfeit gohonzon, spend some time reading gosho, and become ashamed of how you've led people away from enlightenment. Don't think it's gonna happen.

    2. An actual --- what? :

      Can't be a follower of Nichiren-- or you would realize that making the pronouncements and uttering the directives you posted here are about as un-Nichiren Buddhist as you can get--

      Your arbitrary views and personal interpretations do not constitute Buddhist teachings- and apparently you lack skill in providing scriptural reference for your rant--

      I applaud Mark for providing a site where EVEN poor deprived -of -scripture , SGI members, can encounter the true teachings and learn that they are relevant to our lives--upheld, protected and propagated by those the SGI feared!

      Actually, you make a great case for this blog-- showing that lacking in correct study, makes one an arrogant false sage. The SGI is over run with self-professed experts ---

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