Answer: According to the sutra text, the votaries of the Lotus Sutra in the Latter Day of the Law, who are so faithful in upholding the sutra that they are hated by others, are the true priests of Mahayana. They are the teachers of the Law who will propagate the Lotus Sutra and bring people benefit. As for priests who are thought well of by others, who go along with other people’s desires and so come to be revered, one should regard them as the enemies of the Lotus Sutra and as evil influences to the world. A sutra passage likens persons of this type to a hunter who spies sharply about him as he stalks a deer, or to a cat who hides its claws as it creeps up on a mouse. In just such a way, we are told, do they flatter, deceive, and mislead the lay men and women.""The Nirvana Sutra says: “After I have passed away and countless hundreds of years have gone by, the sages of the four stages too will have all passed away. After the Former Day of the Law has ended and the Middle Day of the Law has begun, there will be monks who will give the appearance of abiding by the rules of monastic discipline. But they will scarcely ever read or recite the sutras, and instead will crave all kinds of food and drink to nourish their bodies. Though they wear the clothes of a monk, they will p.12go about searching for alms like so many huntsmen who, narrowing their eyes, stalk softly. They will be like a cat on the prowl for mice. And they will constantly reiterate these words, ‘I have attained arhatship!’ Outwardly they will seem to be wise and good, but within they will harbor greed and jealousy. [And when they are asked to preach the teachings, they will say nothing,] like Brahmans who have taken a vow of silence. They are not true monks—they merely have the appearance of monks. Consumed by their erroneous views, they slander the correct teaching.”That's Sylvain
I preach only the Lotus. I do not ascribe the title of Buddha to any other than Shakyamuni, and you attempt to vilify me for my health and wellness exercise. Hmm, it seems you are validating my Nichiren Buddhist practice. As for your continued attack on my character I pray you will read Nichiren's admonitions on this. NaMuMyoHoRenGeKyo
Also I must add as I have told you several times, Nichiren often reminds us as do all scholars of the Buddha Shakyamuni's teachings and quote, " there can be no Buddhism without STUDY, etc..." Study includes all Buddhist AND non-Buddhist teachings. Mark, we are all on our specific roads to awakening. We all have karmic challenges. Broad study is essential to fully grasp the Buddhist method in the teachings. There is no gain in your incessant limitations and attacks on others Buddhists. If you disagree with other Buddhists the most proper and beneficial way to gain resolve is through chanting to your Gohonzon. Please use your anger as a motivation to chant. NaMuMyoHoRenGeKyo!
Study is for the sake of refutation, not for mixing of practices... See The Opening of the Eyes.You have been warned. There are bigger more important fish to fry.
Says the bastard who puts statues of Native American, Jesus Christ, Witch broom and Shakyamuni Buddha idol next to the Gohonzon plus some creamy Kempon Hokke Pokey on top. Good job hypocrite. You really are the true product of the Soka Gakkai. You and the rest of these chumps cannot be called Nichiren Shoshu members. Your false image as a Nichiren Buddhist flies in your claim to practicing correctly. Your falsehood pretense truly makes Hokkeko sick.
Shoshu doctrine is Tendai bunk - Original enlightenment , the common mortal is Buddha , produces the arrogant , base minded-- likes of Dirham 🙀Gakkai is Shoshu bunk + mentor disciple -- we have seen the farce of a " war " between the " funi-twins" competing for patrons --$$$ is their common denominator.

Silence, you are another Statue worshipping Shinto loving Junkie. Your posts in ARBN are nothing but silly entertainment. Arguing with SGI members when you are all the same.... deluded cultists banned from accessing the Dai Gohonzon.
For Dirhamster , 四重興廃一 。 にぜん四重興廃一。爾前迹門の大教興れば外道廃る二。迹門大教興れば 爾前廃る三。本門の大教興れば 迹門廃る四。観心の大教興れば本門廃る}法華本門如来寿量品の文底秘沈の勧心の教This is the shoshu doctrine re: the 4fold rise and fall.Ask one of your priests to help you with the translation 😂~Katie
Liar. Dirham you are as honest as your false religion. If you can prove that I have Jesus, Witch brfoom, or a native American statue on my altar, I will convert to the Nichiren Shoshu. Besides, you are particularly stupid and mean. That is your actual proof.
Let us review all your numerous photos of mix and match Gohonzon / religious paraphernalia you lying sack of shït. You loiter the entire internet with your Gohonzon experimentation, some you have even posted in this crap excuse of a blog. Do us all a favor and OWN your actions for once. Many have already pointed out to you what you do... just admit it so and be at peace with your "independent" Nichirenist side. It's not so hard, live is better when you are more honest than Pretending to be someone you are clearly not.
Dirham worships a fake composite Disney-land Gohonzon. How gauche.
most likely this is why he can no longer make any sense. blowing prints will not save him .
What a fool believing those carny priests.
You Dirham are a lying sack of excrement. Perhaps you are jealous that we have a copy of a Nichiren Gohonson, not one of your ugly Taisekeji priest knock-offs. Better a real Gohonzon with a statue of Shakyamuni Buddha than the fake composite Daigohonzon.
dirham...don't come crying to us when u get your slanderous effects.renge!no faith is the issue you fool !
