106 Last Religious Precepts of Nikko (2)

                  Japanese edition


The last religious precepts of these 26 items are not Nikko's thought. These are the things which gathered teachings of teacher Nichiren to the last, and there are all the reasons of each item to writings which Nichiren left, and these all items are based on the spirit questing for Law that we must not violate teachings of the root Buddha Nichiren of the latter day of the Law even in one character or one phrase either. It is written in the beginning "The doctrine of Fuji should not be different in the least from the propagation which the former teacher performed".

Furthermore,

“14. In the case of the priest like "One's body is insignificant, the Law is heavy", even if he was the Buddhist priest of the ignobleness, you must respect him by the reason of "Showing him the same respect you would do Buddha."

15. Even if he is a lowly person, in the case of a Buddhist priest of propagating the Law, you should think him to be an old priest with virtue.

16. Even if he was the person of the ignobleness, you should respect him who is superior in wisdom than you and treat him as a teacher.”

The strong thought that Nikko entrusted the disciple believer of after ages with is coming from these three articles. These are saying. We should learn justice of teacher Nichiren without regard to the difference in viewpoint and difference in social position and a person according to that justice looks up as a teacher and should worship him, let the root and origin through "the Law" that Nichiren established.

“17. If he differed from the Law of Buddha and established a willful doctrine even if he was chief priest of that time, you must not adopt this.

18. If Law of Buddha has a difference even if it was a resolve of large number of people, the chief priest must defeat this”.

These two items embody the principle of "relying upon the Law and not depending on a person" which Nichiren described as follows in 'The requiting to favors' definitely. "'Rely upon the Law', it means all the Buddhist sutras. 'Not depend on a person ', it means Manjusri Bodhisattva, Hugen Bodhisattva and the various teachers other than Buddha."

"The ceremony of the holy funeral service" of this time imitates "the holy funeral service record of the sect founder" that Nikko recorded "the ceremony of the holy funeral service" of Nichiren by himself. Nichigo appointed from Nikko as one person of the new six priests of virtue does written record as "the funeral record of holy priest Nikko", and this is possessed now in Hota Myohonji Temple.

It is listed in following "the funeral record of holy priest Nikko" that Nichigo write that a then disciple or believer, for example the three children of Tokimitsu Nanjo, or the older brother who died young, of Nikko participated many.
