Gain new insights into The Spirit of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism. Through this detailed history of the priesthood, you will gain a new understanding of the current problems within Nichiren Shushu as well as a clearer picture of where our kosen-rufu movement must go in the future. The history traces a pattern of doctrinal mistakes and corrupt behavior over 700 years that call into question Nichiren Shoshu's claims of orthodoxy and authority. Read about * The seventeenth high priest's worshipping of a statue of Shakyamuni. * The transfer of the high priest's "heritage" to a lay person. * "Infallible" high priests as young as 9. * High priests imported from other sects. * Nichiren Shoshu's capitulation to the Japanese military government during World War II. You'll also learn about the reformers - such as the ninth and twenty-sixth high priests - and their struggle to try to bring Nichiren Shoshu back to the true spirit of Nichiren Daishonin
