The truth of actual fact regarding the Five Senior priests

"The five senior priests disregarded many Gosho, including most of Nichiren Daishonin's letters on account of their being written in a mix of Chinese Characters and Japanese phonetic syllabary. They also slandered Nikko Shonin for revering the Daishonin's writings as "Gosho" and for delivering lectures on them.They went so far as to bleach the paper on which the Daishonin had written certain Gosho (so that it could be reused for other purposes), or else consigned them to flames. Further they labeled as forged writings and repudiated those Gosho that showed their own ideas in a disadvantageous light." -- Daisaku Ikeda

No one has saved and preserved more Gosho, including disputed ones, than the five senior priests, Toki Jonin, their disciples, and the schools they founded. Without the efforts of the Five Senior Priests and the "orthodox" sects, there would be few writings, no Major Works, and no Gosho Zenshu. All the theoretical and documentary proof in the world, let alone the lies and hearsay of Taisekiji and the Soka Gakkai, can not touch the truth of actual fact.
