Question C#2: What is the most heretical Buddhism in the three
Answer C#2: Easily, Nichiren Shoshu.
1. While pretending to follow Nikko Shonin, they have continued to
slander and undermine Nikko and Nichiren Buddhism. Since their
founding in 1912, no Nichiren Shoshu priest has followed all of the 26
Admonitions, and because of that, none of them can be called followers
of Nikko's School, according to Nikko: "Those who violate even one of
these articles cannot be called disciples of Nikko."
2. They train all of their priests at Rissho University of Nichiren
Shu, where they teach classes about Saint Nichiren (Shonin), and how
the "secret transmissions" explain the meaning of the Gohonzon. These
are just a couple of examples of the many evil classes that are listed
on the web. This is a violation of Nikko Shonin's Admonitions 2, and
1, that has continued since 1912, for each and every priest candidate.
Everyone one of them are trained as enemies of the Law.
3. Although they pretended to break away from Nichiren Shu, they have
continually tried to reunite with them. The only thing standing in the
way is Nikko and the DaiGohonzon of the Daishonin. This is why Nikken
was trying to prove that the DaiGohonzon was counterfeit under
Nittatsu. Now, behind the scenes, Nikken is trying again to join the
Federation of Nichiren groups. This is an unbelievably traitorous
violation of Nikko Shonin's Admonitions 2, and 1.
4. They treat Taisekiji like the "pure land", the High Priest like
"Amida", and Tozan as enlightenment. This amounts to using the
DaiGohonzon as a club to extract money from and gain control of
humanity. This is a violation of Nikko Shonin's Admonition 1. When I
look at the pictures of the sculptures from King Ashoka's Great Stupa
at Amaravati, it astonishes me to realize that Nichiren Shoshu has
regressed so far, even from ancient times.
Because of these four points, it is abundantly clear that no sect of
Buddhism will ever again be in the position again, to violate the
Kosen Rufu movement in such a profound way. Hence, Nichiren Shoshu is
the most heretical Buddhism in the three existences.
Nikko Shonin's 26 Admonitions
I will here set forth some articles for the sake of later students of
Buddhism. This is solely because I treasure the [Daishonin's] golden
words regarding kosen-rufu
1. The doctrines of the Fuji school must not differ in the least from
the teachings of the late master.
2. The doctrines of the five senior priests differ in every regard
from the teachings of the late master.
3. There will [in the future] appear persons who slander our school,
saying that the Gosho are forged writings. You must not associate with
such evil priests.
4. Those who produce forged writings and say that they are Gosho, or
who practice with the view that the essential and theoretical
teachings [of the Lotus Sutra] are the same, are parasites in the
5. You should refrain from indulging in poetry or non-Buddhist works,
or from engaging in idleness and chatter without [having the aim of]
6. Lay believers should be strictly prohibited from visiting
[heretical] temples and shrines. Moreover, priests should not visit
slanderous temples or shrines, which are inhabited by demons, even if
only to have a look around. To do so would be a pitiful violation [of
the Daishonin's Buddhism.] This is not my own personal view; it wholly
derives from the sutras [of Shakyamuni] and the writings [of Nichiren
7. Disciples of ability should be allowed to devote themselves to the
study of the Gosho and other doctrines of Buddhism, without being
pressed to perform miscellaneous services for their teachers.
8. Those of insufficient learning who are bent on obtaining fame and
fortune are not qualified to call themselves my followers.
9. Until they are well versed in the difference between the
provisional and true teachings, followers of later generations should
visit this temple, setting aside the debt of gratitude they owe to
their parents and teachers, and undertake various studies in order to
free themselves [from the sufferings of birth and death] and attain
10.Unless you have a thorough understanding of and firm faith in the
teachings [of Nichiren Daishonin], you should not study T'ien-t'ai's
11. Followers of this school should engrave the teachings of the Gosho
in their lives and thereby inherit the ultimate principles expounded
by the master. Then, if they have any leisure time, they should
inquire into the doctrine of the T'ien-t'ai school.
12. You should be inclined to engage in discussion or deliver lectures
[on Buddhism], and you should refrain from pursuing secular concerns.
13. Until kosen-rufu is achieved, propagate the Law to the full extent
of your ability without begrudging your life.
14. As for practitioners who treasure the Law more highly than their
own lives, even if they are but humble teachers of the Law, you must
hold them in great esteem, revering them as you would the Buddha.
15. You should revere a teacher of the Law who engages in its
propagation as a sacred priest, even though he may be your junior.
16.Even though they may be lowly, you should deeply respect and regard
as your teachers those whose understanding of Buddhism surpasses your
17. Do not follow even the high priest if he goes against the Buddha's
Law and propounds his own views.
18. Even if a view is set forth unanimously by a conference [of
believers], the high priest should repudiate it if it goes against the
19. Black robes should not be worn [by priests].
20. Jikitotsu should not be worn [by priests].
21. You should not sit together with slanderers of the Law [at
religious ceremonies] for fear of suffering the same punishment as
22. You must not accept offerings from slanderers of the Law.
23. Carrying a sword or staff in order to protect the Buddhist Law is
permissible.However, [weapons] should not be worn when presiding over
religious services, though accompanying priests may be permitted to
carry them [to protect themselves and others].
24. [At religious ceremonies] young acolytes should not occupy seats
lower than those of high-ranking lay followers.
25. My disciples should conduct themselves as holy priests, patterning
their behavior after that of the late master. However, even if a high
priest or a priest striving for practice and understanding should
temporarily deviate from [the principle of] ***ual abstinence, he may
still be allowed to remain in the priesthood [as a common priest
26. You should treasure those practitioners who are skilled in
difficult debate, just as the late master did.
I have set forth these 26 articles for the sake of the eternal
salvation and protection of humankind. Those who violate even one of
these articles cannot be called disciples of Nikko.

Note: THE Fuji school is the line of Nikko Shonin's followers. The
"late master" is Nichiren Daishonin.
Excerpt from Living Budhism April 1998 issue.
Clearly, many of these are directed at priests, and not at lay
persons. The impact of number 25 is that all Nichiren Shoshu priests,
since the sect broke away from Nichiren Shu in 1912, should have been
common priests without rank, and there should never have been a high
priest. The impact of number 2, is that all Nichiren Shoshu priests
are inherently corrupted by being trained at Rissho University run by
Nichiren Shu Minobu sect, which was founded by one of the five senior
priests. The impact of both of those being violated by all high
priests of Nichiren Shoshu means number 17 should have been invoked by
the laity since day one, which is our neglect. And for which we
suffered until Nikken, in his great mercy, excommunicated the SGI and
freed us from violating Nikko's admonitions. Truth be told, because of
numbers 25, 2 and 17, Nichiren Shoshu violates every admonition of
From "The Entity of the Mystic Law", Writings of Nichiren Daishonin,
The Complete and Final Teaching on Perfect Enlightenment Sutra
declares, "The beginningless illusions and ignorance that beset all
living beings are all produced by the perfectly enlightened mind of
the Thus Come Ones."
