Nichiren Daishonin

The Buddha of the true cause (for enlightenment)

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo

Millions of people have revolutionized their lives through this dynamic Buddhist practice. It is a living actual Buddhism, based on chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo to the mystical mandala or Gohonzon. Established by Nichiren Dai Shonin, the true Buddha on April 28th 1253 in Japan and continued ever since by the Priesthood at the Head Temple at Taisekiji.

Nichiren Daishonin was born on February 16, 1222, at the beginning of the Latter Day of the Law to fulfill Shakyamuni's prophesy that the True Buddha would appear and teach the Great Pure Law to save people for the eternal future. The date of the Daishonin's birth has a mystic connection with Shakyamuni's Buddhism because Shakyamuni died on February 15. This indicates that the Daishonin's Buddhism began at the point where the power of Shakyamuni's Buddhism ceased.

The purpose of this presentation is to share with you the brilliance, clarity of thought, poetry and compassion of Nichiren Daishonin ThE Buddha who was prophesised in the Lotus Sutra tonappear in the age that we live in now. His teachings and practice have been kept alive by the successive high Priests at the Head Temple at Taisekiji at the foot of Mount Fuji in Japan for 750 years. The eternal Buddha sought only for the truth and delved into every teaching in his time to extract it. Eventually he found the essential teaching.

Nichiren Daishonin lived this teaching.He was a fervent patriot who saw the truth as liberating the whole World. A deeply passionate and compassionate man he looked upon his followers or disciples as an extension of himself ---his family. His aim was the liberation of all humankind from oppressive authority and restriction so that they may reach the unbounded shores of unlimited enlightenment.

The story of The Daishonin ?

BIOGRAPHY OF NICHIREN DAISHONIN

and the story of the contemporary Japan of the thirteenth century is a story on a monumental canvas as vast as the infinite Universe. It is filled with utter compassion and the ultimate expression of a Heart felt Human being who challenges all obstacles to obtain the ultimate Jewel the cosmic gift of ultimate fusion of the Person with the Law or the attainment of the ultimate fusion of life with the phenomenal Universe. He rightly called his teaching the Third Way because it encompasses the numinous and the highest potential inherent in Humanity.

BIOGRAPHY OF NICHIREN DAISHONIN

Nichiren Dai Shonin was born on the seacoast of the southeastern corner of Japan,to a fisherman named Mikuni no Tayu and his wife, Umegiku-nyo, in the small fishing village of Kominato in Tojo in Awa Province, which is now Chiba Prefecture. His childhood name was Zennichimaro.

(Shinpen, p. 482; M.W., Vol. 5, p. l24).
