and because katie is a strict disciplinarian . watch out kiddies.
Seriously, what is your best estimate as to how many people in the USA "practice as Nichiren?"....and, in the rest of the world? Also, what of the many organized Nichiren Sects, in your opinion comes the closest?
max ...have u been affiliated with nichirens buddhism for a long time , or only a sho time?
Less than twenty people practice as Nichiren did in the USA. I estimate that less than 500 people practice as Nichiren did in the world. Not one of the major established sects practice as Nichiren. Of the minor sects, the Fuju Fuse sect, the sub-sect not affiliated with the Nichiren Shu, has the majority of those believers who practice as did Nichiren. Very few practice neither giving nor receiving from slanderers as outlined in the Letter to Niike. Very few practice predominantly the forceful practices (shakubuku) towards non-believers.
if ones studies at all, they would understand that in the latter day hatred and jealous toward the L S would be rampant. fews would or could uphold and the many would slander. STUDY REAL BUDDHISM.
sgi and not breed cowards ! stupid.
