Nichiren Daishonin states, "seeds without peer". Dialogue is a discourse between equals. Since the Lotus Sutra and its votaries are superior to other faiths and their practitioners by virtue of the standards of ethics, morality, non-violence, insight, compassion, empathy, rationality, and mercy, there can be no dialogue. There is only debate. Least of all can there be dialogue with the slanderers of Nichiren Lotus Sutra Buddhism, with those who would alter the teachings or with those who enrich themselves teaching the dharma.
