About The Enlightening Messages Part II: Eternal Buddha in Us, in the World

This booklet is derived from Nichiou Shonin Kyoke Shu, which was originally published by the Oushi-Kai of Butsugenji on June 10, 1989. The translation of the text has been done through permission of the copyright proprietor of the original work.


On this blog, we are introducing a bit of the story as quotes.


Moreover, the Lotus Sutra, which is the real Truth, is in fact a sutra with a deep karmic affinity with Japan.

“This sutra (the Lotus Sutra) is in the related northeast, and so forth, and the Western China country is in the direction of ram-monkey (south- west). The country of Japan, in the eastern direction, is in the direction of the ox-tiger (northeast). From India, to be in the related-northeast, is quite unexpectedly, the country of Japan.”

St. Nichiren strongly sensed, also through the sutras, a deep affinity between the Lotus Sutra and the country of Japan.

And he strove to save the important country of Japan from ruin with a confidence to even say: “There is no yes or no for Nichiren.”
