The Tokugawas, Nissei 17th, and the cranes of NST )
Contrary to what you see on TV, the history of Nobunaga, Hideyoshi and
the Tokugawas was one of great evil, corruption and the complicity of
one 17th High Priest Nissei as a lackey of the Shogunate to undermine
Nichiren's Buddhism in the 1600's.
What was attempted and failed because of the courage of Makiguchi and
Toda, was successfully completed during the 17th century, due to the
vast cowardice and lack of honor of the Fuji School, until the
appearance of Nichikan Shonin the 26th High Priest of the Nichiren Shu
Komon School (our hero of heroes). Not a perfect human, but as perfect
as he could be.
From "The Entity of the Mystic Law", Writings of Nichiren Daishonin,
Ignorance is a state of delusion that must be cut off, whereas
enlightenment is the state that one must manifest. How then can we say
that they are a single entity? To resolve doubts on this point, one
should have a clear grasp of the passages that have been quoted here.
The example of the dream given in the ninety-fifth volume of The
Treatise on the Great Perfection of Wisdom and the T'ien-t'ai school's
example of the piece of crystal cited above are very interesting
Further proof of the truth that ignorance and enlightenment are one in
essence is found in the passage in the Lotus Sutra that reads, "These
phenomena are part of an abiding Law, [and] the characteristics of the
world are constantly abiding." Great Perfection of Wisdom says,
"Enlightenment and ignorance are not different things, not separate
things. To understand this is what is called the Middle Way."
