We are the modern Nichiren reform movement

"Still, a purist "Lotus only" stance and the rejection of "Dharma slander'' remained official ideology and were periodically revived by Hokkeshu leaders eager to launch reformist movements within the tradition or to legitimize newly founded lineages. Such figures sometimes leveled charges of "Dharma slander'' not only at other Buddhist schools but at rival branches within the Nichiren tradition, thus bolstering their own claims to superior orthodoxy and fidelity to Nichiren's example." -- Jacqueline Stone
