  2. Nichiren set the standard for refutation and slander; The closer the religion is to True Buddhism but not itself True Buddhism, the more dangerous and hellish is the religion. Therefore, it is soka Gakkai, Nichiren Shoshu, and Nichiren Shu that are the true danger, the true evil.

    I will prove to you that I have no love for the Jewish religion or the violence perpetrated by the Jewish people but remember, even SGI, Nichiren Shoshu, Catholics, Muslims, and Jews have the Buddha-nature, and now one could confuse the Jewish religion for the Lotus Sutra Buddhism of Nichiren.

    We can include Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, and Islam along with the Nembutsu, True Word, Zen, and Therevada. SGI can not make the connection because they follow the devilish slanderer Ikeda rather than Nichiren. Even the Daimoku can not penetrate the hearts of such slanderers. As long as they remain in the SGI, they will never gain a correct view. Their Object of Worship is mistaken. Their faith is lame.

    And we too are fathers and mothers to the rulers and the Christian, Jewish, Hindu, and provisional Buddhist religious leaders. Why? Because we admonish them for not embracing the Lotus Sutra and chanting Namu Myoho renge kyo. If you chant the Daimoku but you don’t like Nichiren Daishonin or Nichiren Daishonin’s way, you are not true to yourself and your words are hollow.

    Do you think Nichiren Daishonin would compromise with the Christians, Jews, Muslims, or Brahmins? I will not compromise the teachings for a pat on the back and an award or two.

    By making offerings to these slanderers through your interfaith activities one destines oneself to hell. To have the same mind as Nichiren takes courage.

    This is not just a call for the leaders of the country but a call for his disciples and believers. That is why so many copies of this treatise was circulated. Thanks to Shakyamuni Buddha and the Lotus Sutra, we of the will overcome the oppression of the Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Christians and the provisional Buddhists in the West, in India and in Southeast Asia.

    Not accepting a single verse of the other sutras, means not accepting a single verse of the Koran, Bible, Torah or Vedas, let alone the Agamas, the Pure Land, and the Collection Of Wisdom Sutras.

    Those guilty of no fault are those who embrace the Lotus Sutra and follow Nichiren Daishonin. Those guilty of great faults are the Soka Gakkai, the Nichiren Shu, the accommodating Nichiren priests of whatever denomination, the Muslims, Hindus, Christians and Jews.

    We can also evaluate the non-Buddhist teachings and reveal their fallacies. We can evaluate the devotees of these religions and point out their faults. There is no common ground and there is no compromise. Chant Namu Myoho renge kyo or fall into hell.

    "Instead, SGI castigates the Sutra's votaries and lauds and extols the Muslims, Christians, Jews, Brahmins, their mentor, and themselves while condemning and denouncing the teachings of the True Votary Nichiren. This is no different than condemning and denouncing the Great Man himself."

    "According to the Gosho, it is not Christians who are enemies of the Lotus Sutra. That religion has no power. Shakubuku is meant for heretical sects of Buddhism, which have the power to destroy like the parasite in the lion's bowels. It is absolutely not effective to go around slamming the religion of Christians, Jews, Muslims, other Judeo-Christian or pagan peoples, etc. If that is what you mean by shakubuku. Shoju is definitely appropriate for such people, and darned if I don't know the Gosho passage off hand, but I can find it if you aren't familiar with this concept." -- SGI WD leader

    When is the last time SGI took to task the Tibetians, Zennists, True Word, Tendai, and Theravadan Buddhists? Also, could you point out where Nichiren praised the Brahmans, Taoists, and non-Buddhists? He stated that they were even inferior to the Hinayana. SGI sometimes brings up that Nichiren once stated that non-Buddhist religions are an introduction to Buddhism or that they are in reality not non-Buddhist teachings but the teachings of Buddhism itself. He also pointed out that once the pagoda is completed, the scaffolding is discarded.

    "Actual proof as a standard for the superiority of a religion or philosphy is the most important of the three proofs [documentary, theoretical, and actual]. There must be a way to establish actual proof or all philosophies and religions would be equally valid. There are several ways to establish actual proof. Historicity is one way but as a retrospective device, it is not as powerful as a prospective device such as a rain challenge, prophecies, predictions, and formal debates. Likewise, thusness, or the actuality of a teaching and the behavior of the believers of a particular teaching is an important aspect of actual proof. For example, there is not one exhortation to violence in the Lotus Sutra and the non-violent behavior of the votaries of the Lotus Sutra can be contrasted with the call for violence in the Bible and Q'uran and the actual violence perpetrated by Muslims, Christians, and Jews. Merely leading an ethical life and performing good deeds is a less powerful standard of actual proof because followers of all religions are capable of adhering to this standard."

    And the Muslims, the Hindu's, the Christians, the Jews, the secularists... Everyone has a Gohonzon, something to which they devote themselves: Some whose Gohonzon without [external Gohonzon] is warped, some whose Gohonzon within [internal Gohonzon] is warped, and some whose internal and external Gohonzon is warped. In the case of the Soka Gakkai, both internal and external Gohonzon are mistaken. In the case of the Kempon Hokke, it is their internal Gohonzon..

    This response is like the fragrant sandalwood trees that correct among the groves of foul-smelling eranda trees, or lotus blossoms that rise from the mud. Thus, when I proclaim that the followers of the Nembutsu will fall into the hell of incessant suffering, the “wise men” of our day, who are in fact no wiser than cattle or horses, may venture to attack my doctrines. But in truth they are like scavenger dogs barking at the lion king, or foolish monkeys laughing at the god Shakra.”

    We may substitute Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, or Islam for Nembutsu. Can you not see this? If the Daimoku does not penetrate your heart to obtain a correct view it is because your Object of Worship is incorrect.

    What could be more immoral than Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism which trample on the dignity of human life?

    The entire world is based on Chistianity, Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism. They are paths to war and ruin. But SGI seeks support and guidance from these slanderers and give them support and sucor.
    I have an additional 10 or 12 passages that prove you wrong anonymous; I will not let you slander a votary unless what you say is absolutely true. You get no more chances to criticize and slander me; You will be censored.

  4. Blind, lazy, cowardly, Nichiren priests and SGI leaders who promote tolerance towards evil and interfaith dialogue as the cause for establishing an enlightened peaceful society are the enemies of the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren Daishnin. If we look at the state of India and Pakistan and Israel and Palestine, despite the best intentions of such men as Gandhi, Sadat, and Begin, we see that good intentions alone will never solve the problems facing mankind (nuclear weapons, war, pollution, famine, drought, the destruction of the natural environment, the energy crisis and so on). Eliminating the root cause of these problems, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and provisional Buddhism is the way. The last and only great Buddhist empire was Ashoka the Great's in which he outlawed the faith and practice of heretical teachings. His society was as close to a worldly paradise in the annals of human history. He didn't tolerate inferior teachings. He outlawed them. The people were happy and at ease and they learned the art of leading long valuable lives. The cowardly SGI leaders and Nichiren priests who proclaim tolerance and interfaith in the face of mankind's historic problems and suffering are not only destroying this loftiest of teachings but any chance for Nichiren Daishonin's vision of the rain not falling hard enough to break a clod.

  5. A few more for Anonymous the liar...

    Lastly, coming to the just and correct conclusion that it is the Hokke sect that is superior and the teachings of the Lotus Sutra alone that leads to Buddhahood, we can spread these teachings far and wide, repudiating the wrongs of the Soka Gakkai, the Nichiren Shoshu, provisional Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. The world will become peaceful, calm, and secure.

    I have been criticized that I create enmity, that people are turned off to Nichiren Shonin’s Buddhism by my criticisms of the Soka Gakkai, the Nichiren Shoshu, the provisional Buddhist sects, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. Others say, I don’t get the deeper meaning of what Nichirin Daishonin was teaching. I hear all sorts of criticisms from Nichiren Buddhists, Zennists, Tibetians, Islamists, and Christians. The fact is, if you study the Lotus and Nirvana Sutras and the writings of Nichiren Daishonin, you come to no other conclusion than our's and Nichiren Daishonin's. These religions and philosophies are the cause of the world’s strife and the people’s suffering.

    It is self apparent to the disciples and believers of the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren Daishonin, those with clear minds and those keenly able to correctly observe the world, that it is Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, secular humanism, belief in the sanctity of science, and heretical provisional Buddhism which has brought us to the brink. The elimination of these diseased religions and philosophies will bring about the land of eternal quiescent light.
