Finally, I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to those who have assisted with the preparation and editing of this dictionary.


Regarding this Gosho Nichiren Daishonin wrote, “I wanted to record the wonder I had experienced, in case I should be beheaded. Foreword Preface Guide to the Dictionary.

Nichiren Daishonin reveals himself here to be the Buddha of the Latter Day of the Law who possesses the three virtues of parent, teacher and sovereign. This web site is not affiliated with nor sanctioned by any organization affiliated with Soka Gakkai International. This new dictionary focuses largely on Nichiren Buddhism. Nikko Shonin designated ten of Nichiren Daishonin’s writings as the most important of his works.

Mind, however, gosgo not limited to mere process of thought. Through the unifying principle expressed in the Lotus Sutra, however, those contrasting views are integrated and resolved, giving rise to the concept of the fusion of self and other. An early Buddhist text known as the Dhammapada reads: From the point of view of Buddhist doctrine, it discusses the vital importance of repaying debts of gratitude, especially to a teacher, and concludes that the way to repay such obligations fully is to embrace and propagate the Mystic Law.


Under Inaba-bo’s name, Nichiren Daishonin wrote this treatise to the steward on behalf of his disciple. It predicts that two further disasters, internal strife and foreign invasion, would occur if the country continues its support of mistaken teachings and heretical priests. If, by encountering this dictionary, many people are able to deepen their understanding of goosho appreciation for Buddhist philosophy, I will be deeply gratified.

It also outlines the Daishonin’s teachings and the reasons for his actions and urges Mitsumoto to abandon the Pure Land Nembutsu teachings and take faith in the Zensgu Law. Inaba-bo Nichiei, one of the Daishonin’s disciples who lived in Shimoyama, had tried to convert Mitsumoto and met with extreme opposition. It is the perspective of Buddhism that both conflict and peace arise from the human mind.

Buddhism places strong emphasis on zenshhu human heart and mind. Also written on Sado Island over a two-year period and dated April 25,this Gosho was entrusted to Toki Jonin, a government official and an early convert to the Daishonin’s teachings.

It asserts that during this time period shakubukuleading another to the correct Buddhist teaching by refuting his attachment to heretical views, is preferable to shoju gradually leading another to the true teaching without refuting his misconceptions. Buddhism elucidates the essential equality present on the level of life itself. Presented in a form of fifteen questions and answers, it establishes the supremacy of the Lotus Sutra over the provisional teachings. The essential message in this work, which I entrusted to Shijo Kingo’s messenger, is that the destiny of Japan depends solely upon me.


Bert, Most of the arguments occur, because people do not read their literature of their foundation, the Lotus Sutra. In this sense, I believe it is extremely important to understand such Buddhist concepts and consider them in terms of their modern significance. We are able to discern the beginnings of Mahayana within the Buddhism of India, but it began zenshy flower and bear fruit in earnest as it encountered and spread among different cultures.

It also recklessly mixes forged letters with authentic letters of Nichiren, so there is no way of knowing which is which. Each of those views offers a partial perspective and, taken goosho itself, may be considered biased or one-sided.
