Let's do Shakubuku to SGI and NS to save their believers.

The Bible of Shakubuku (1951), ά•š‹³“T, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda had been published to train believers for decades. SGI was one of believer's organizations of Nichiren Shoshu.

SGI (Soka Gakkai) taught that;
"Shakyamuni's dharma is the dharma of the past and no longer beneficial". (ά•š‹³“T,The Bible of Shakubuku, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

But,

Nichiren taught;
The Lotus Sutra is identical to Shakyamuni Buddha,who would enter Nirvana and never appear in front of those who do not believe in the Lotus Sutra but would always appear in front of those who believe in the Lotus Sutra as if he were alive in this world even after death.(Shugo Kokka-ron)

Nichiren taught;

Buddhists rebel against Lord Buddha Shakyamuni while reciting His Lotus Sutra. The unfilial country referred to is this country of Japan.(Soya Nyudo-dono-gari Gosho)

Buddhism is the teachings of mind, the teachings of the Buddha Shakyamuni who existed in the society 2500 years ago. He made efforts to remove sufferings from all people. There is no difference between people of 2500 years ago and present people, on the mind. Except for the teachings of the Buddha Shakyamuni is not Buddhism. If you study Buddhism rightly, the Buddha Shakyamuni exists in your mind and preaches the wisdom and the dharma.  The Lotus Sutra is what proves the real existence of the Buddha Shakyamuni. Why don't you think about it?


SGI (Soka Gakkai) taught that;
"It is necessary to realize that we no longer have a connection to Shakyamuni's Buddhism." (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

But,

Nichiren taught;
We, sentient being in this Saha World, have all been beloved children of the Lord Buddha Shakamuni since "500 dust-particle kalpa" ago. (Hokke Shuyo sho)

Nichiren taught;
The nation of Japan today has turned its back on the Lotus Sutra and cast aside Shakyamuni Buddha. For that reason, its people are not only bound to fall into the great citadel of the Avici Hell in the next existence, but they will surely encounter great troubles in their present existence as well. (Letter to Ichinosawa Nyudo)

The Buddha Shakyamuni expounded the teachings to save all human beings. The Buddha Shakamuni is eternal. The eternal Buddha Shakyamuni is the only father for all human beings. If you seek His teachings and practice it, you become a disciple of the Buddha Shakyamuni. Nichiren shonin and all priests of other sects, also all Buddhists are disciples of the Buddha Shakyamuni. Needless to say, those who have no connection to the Buddha Shakyamuni are not Buddhist. Nichiren shonin risked a life and appealed, "You must not forget the compassionate teachings of the Buddha Shakyamuni."  Why don't think about it?

SGI (Soka Gakkai) taught that;
"You should know that Nichiren Daishonin is the only true Buddha in Mappo-era." (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

"Buddha Shakamuni is inferior to the true Buddha Nichiren." (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

But,

Nichiren taught;
There are three reasons why Shakyamuni Buddha has a relationship with all the people of this Saha world. First of all he is the World-Honored One, the sovereign of the people of this Saha world. The second reason is that Shakyamuni Buddha is the father and mother of all persons in this Saha world. The third reason is that Shakyamuni is the original teacher of all persons in this Saha world. (Zenmui Sanzou Sho)

Nichiren taught;
Although I myself may be insignificant, I propagate the Lotus Sutra and therefore am the envoy of Shakyamuni Buddha. (Shujyu Onfurumai Gosho)

The Lotus Sutra is what reveals that the Buddha Shakyamni is the original eternal Buddha.

Nichiren shonin says in Kaimoku-sho, Open Your Eyes,

"I will never break my vow to become the pillar of Japan, to become the eyes of Japan, and to become a great vessel for Japan."

It is a vow to fulfil the Buddha Shakyamuni's mission as a Bodhisattva. But SGI distorts this sentence, and insists on that it is a declaration of Nichiren as the original Buddha. It is an inverted doctrine to slander the founder of Buddhism that rebels against Nichiren's vow. Why don't think about it?


SGI (Soka Gakkai) taught that;
"The Lotus Sutra which is the long-cherished wish of Buddha Shakyamuni is no longer valid in this era, not in the least." (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

But,

Nichiren taught;
The Lotus Sutra alone among them represents the true words of our Lord Shakyamuni Buddha. It is also the true words of various Buddhas residing in the world throughout the universe in the past, present, and future. (Kaimoku-sho, Open Your Eyes)

Nichiren taught;
No matter what happens, abandoning the Lotus Sutra will cause us to be plunged into hell. (Kaimoku-sho, Open Your Eyes)

In Senji-sho, Nichiren shonin points out that Zen Master San-Chiai who said "The Lotus Sutra of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha does not fit the intelligence and faith of people in the Latter Age of Degeneration" lost his voice and transformed himself into a large snake, which swallowed a number of disciples, followers, girls and virgin women. And Nichiren shonin says that, the fallacy of Shan-tao and Honen of the Pure Land School, who say that not even one out of one thousand will attain Buddhahood by putting his faith in the Lotus Sutra in the Latter Age of Degeneration, is not different from San-Chiai's evil doctrine. Namu Myoho Rengekyo is the vow to devote yourself to the Lotus Sutra of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha. But SGI says that the Lotus Sutra of the Lord Buddha Shakyamuni is useless in the Latter Age of Degeneration. Why don't you think about it?

SGI (Soka Gakkai) taught that;
"If you don't worship the Gohonzon of Nichiren Shoshu / SGI, you will get no well-being in the age of Mappo." (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

But,

Nichiren shonin taught;
The features of the Honzon; The Buddha Shakyamuni and the Buddha of Many Treasures sit to the left and right of the Lotus Sutra (Myoho renge kyo) in the stupa of treasure suspended in the sky above the Lord Shakyamuni's Saha World. The attendants for the Buddha Shakyamuni are four Bodhisattvas such as Superior Practice. (Kanjin Honzon-sho)

Nichiren shonin taught;
The first is Most Venerable One (Honzon). All the people in Japan as well as the rest of the whole world should revere the Lord Buddha Shaykamuni of the essential section as the Most Venerable one. That is to say, the Most Venerable One should be the Buddha Shakyamuni, the Buddha of Many Treasures in the Stupa of Treasures, and the other Buddhas standing outside the stupa. And four Bodhisattvas such as Superior Practice Bodhisattva should be their attendants. (Hoon-jo, Essay on Gratitude)

Gohonzon is the object of worship. Nichiren Shoshu uses Mandala written by Nichiren shonin, but it has already turned out to be a forgery. Nikko stayed in Kitayama Honmonji for 36 years. Therefore, there is Nikko's grave in Kitayama Honmonji. Nichi-jyo of Kitayama Honmonji who was the same generation of Nichi-u of Taisekiji said that Nichi-u carved a wooden Gohonzon which he had never seen nor heard. Taiseki-ji was a small branch temple. SGI excommunicated by Nichiren Shoshu is now distributing Gohonzon written by Nichiren Shoshu's priest Nichikan who established the doctrine of Shu-Datsu Sotai.

The doctrine of Shu-Datsu Sotai which says that the Lotus Sutra of the Buddha Shakamuni is useless and only the Daimoku of the true Buddha Nichiren is effective, is based on the following complete fake story made by them;

Shakyamuni, the historical founder of Buddhism who lived in India three thousand years ago, predicted in the Great Collection Sutra (Daijuku Sutra) that the world would enter an age of strife and discord two thousand years after his death, an age when philosophy and religion would be disordered and confused. At that time the Buddhism taught by Shakyamuni would lose its effectiveness to save the people. He called this age Mappo, or the Latter Day of the Law, when, as the Great Collection Sutra stated, gthe Pure Law would become obscured and lost.h However, Shakyamuni made an additional prediction in the Lotus Sutra. He predicted the appearance of True Buddhism for the age of Mappo that would replace the Buddhism of Shakyamuni, and that the Original (True) Buddha, the fundamental master of all Buddhas, would appear in the world to teach this True Buddhism. Why should Shakyamunifs Buddhism lose its effectiveness? Why would the appearance of a new Buddhism be necessary? The reason is that although Mappo is an age when the material aspects of civilization are much more highly advanced than when Shakyamuni lived, it is also an age when the hearts of the people have become corrupt. Shakyamunifs Buddhism has no power to help them. Regarding this, the True Buddha, Nichiren Daishonin, stated;gMedicine differs according to the illness. Ordinary medicine will help a slight ailment, but for grave illness, elixir should be used.h

Their doctrine of "Shu-Datsu Sotai" is still being placed in SGI's and Nichiren shoshufs official sites of Japan. Why don't you chant Daimoku toward the authentic Gohonzon written by Nichiren shonin, not the Gohonzon written by Nichikan?


SGI (Soka Gakkai) taught that;
"All other schools except Nichiren Shoshu are evil religions and exert a pernicious influence on society. (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

"The teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni are as useless as last year's calendar. If you use it, your life will surely fail as a logical result." (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

"The family which believes in the so-called Nichiren-shu will have children who have deformities, mental retardation or madness." (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

Please consider it calmly. Why is Nichiren Shoshu / SGI which slanders the teachings of the Buddha Shakyamuni the only right sect of Buddhism? They needed to abuse other sects exhaustively to increase believers.

It is one of the simple and skillful tricks of SGI that they say together "Your desire has not been realized, because your faith to Daimoku is weak and your effort to do Shakubuku is not enough." Then, they say "Look!  Your desire has been realized, because your faith to Daimoku was strong and your effort to do Shakubuku was enough." By this trick, most of people will believe completely that the practice of SGI is right. They devote themselves to SGI and the president Ikeda Daisaku. They are not able to hear other's opinion anymore.

SGI quotes the following Gosho;
We are presently living in the Latter Age of Degeneration. The Lotus Sutra and other sutras are no longer efficacious in bringing about enlightenment. Only the Odaimoku can accomplish this. (Ueno-dono Gohennji, A Reply to Lord Ueno)

In this Gosho, Nichiren shonin said that Daimoku is the most important thing of the Lotus Sutra taught by the Buddha Shakyamuni. Therefore, those who are not able to understand the deep thought of the Lotus Sutra can become a Buddha by keeping Daimoku, too. Nichiren shonin never denied the Lotus Sutra of the Buddha Shakamuni itself. Although this Gosho is not authentic, SGI use this Gosho to insist on that even the Lotus Sutra of the Buddha Shakamuni is useless. But you should refer to the following authentic Gosho.

My disciples who believe the Lotus Sutra are in the favorable condition, but many others in Japan are not. For those people who protest against the Buddha Shakamuni and his doctrine, only the five characters of Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo will be effective for them. (Hokke Shuyo-sho)

That is to say, Nichiren shonin said that it is not effective to explain about the doctrine of the Lotus Sutra or other sutras to those who were brainwashed by other wrong schools. And he said that only Daimoku is effective for those blind people, as reverse opportunity.


SGI (Soka Gakkai) taught that;
There was an ignorant criticism in the world that SGI was a cult religion having an ambition of independence by exploiting Nichiren shoshu. (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

We have already formed a political party, the Komei, and are now realizing the fusion of politics and Buddhism. Also, we are establishing the third civilized society step by stepcin all realms such as the economy, the education and the culture. (ά•š‹³“T, The Bible of Shakubuku, supervised by Daisaku Ikeda)

Ikeda's SGI tried to control Nichiren Shoshu, but they become aware of Ikeda's ambition and excommunicated him and his SGI in 1991. Many believers of SGI decided to remain Nichiren Shoshu, but most of believers who were brainwashed to worship Ikeda's personality started to slander the priesthood of Nchiren Shoshu. It is the history of the war between SGI and Nichiren Shoshu.

Nichiren shounin claimed that the Buddha Shakyamuni is the original eternal Buddha who has three merits of the sovereign, the teacher, and the parent, saying in Kaimoku-sho (Open Your Eyes) that "All the people should respect these three persons. They are the sovereign, the teacher, and the parent." and "The Buddha Sakyamuni is the supreme teacher for all beings. He is the excellent eyes for all the people. He is the great bridge that enables them to cross the river. He is the superior skipper who guides them. He is the fertile field in which they plant the seed of merits." Then, Nichiren shounin declared to make efforts as a true disciple of the Buddha Shakyamuni, saying that "I will never break my vow to become the pillar of Japan, to become the eyes of Japan, and to become a great vessel for Japan." However, SGI distorts and says that this is the declaration of Nichiren Daishonin who has the merits of the sovereign, the teacher, and the parent, as the true Buddha in the latter days.

Please see the followings which were propagated by Dai-Byaku-renge, the magazine of SGI;

The virtue of the sovereign; Only Ikeda sensei who protects Japan and the whole world has the virtue of the sovereign in the present.

The virtue of the teacher; Only Ikeda sensei who is our teacher has also the virtue of the teacher.

The virtue of the parent; Only Ikeda sensei who prays for the happiness of SGI members has also the virtue of the parent.

You will be able to understand their intention easily. SGI expanded their power by using the doctrine of Nichiren Shoshu, and pushed forward with the personality cult of Ikeda Daisaku. It is said that all of books of Ikeda Daisaku has been written by ghostwriters. And the Komei party of SGI has become the ruling coalition with the Liberal Democratic Party which was tempted with huge votes of SGI believers. So, SGI has a strong influence with the politics, the economy, the education and the mass media. The crisis appealed in Rissho Ankoku-ron of Nichiren shonin has become realistic, now.

Namu Myoho renge kyo was given to Nichiren shonin by the Buddha Shakyamuni, to propagate the Lotus Sutra, Myoho renge kyo, which teaches the eternal Buddha Shakyamuni always guides you. Namu Myoho renge kyo written in the center of Gohonzon was given to Nichiren shonin and us, by the Buddha Shakyamuni. Myoho Renge Kyo means that this world is always guided by the Buddha Shakyamuni who is eternal. It is the Dharma. If you chant Namu Myoho renge kyo and ask the Buddha Shakyamuni in your mind, you can always hear correct teachings from Him. Our Buddha natures are revived by the mind which believes the Lotus Sutra of the Buddha Shakyamuni. That is Namu Myoho renge kyo. The Buddha Shakyamuni ordered His true disciples to spread this Namu Myoho renge kyo. Therefore, if you believe the Lotus Sutra and spread Namu Myoho renge kyo, you can become the true disciple of the Buddha Shakyamuni and realize the true existence of the Buddha Shakyamuni in your mind. I hope SGI believers open their eyes to the truth and spend a wonderful life without committing a sin.
