15. Nichiren Suffers the Difficulty of the Izu Exile (9)

              Japanese edition


Yasaburo married couple feels both dignity and virtue of Nichiren while they took care of Nichiren, and they became a believer naturally.

Nichiren prayed for it in response to a prayer request of the disease recovery from Ito Hachiro-zaemon, and the illness recovered wonderfully. Hachiro-zaemon is converted to Nichiren by this affair, and, he contributed the Buddha statue, which a fisherman of Ito found from all over the sea to Nichiren. Nichiren carries about this Buddha statue through lifetime and he leaves a will to Nikko, "You must put it inside of the cemetery of me".

The reason why Nichiren had a standing statue of Shakyamuni was described by Nikkan Shonin in the "Practices of Buddhism that are Suitable for the Latter-Days of the Law" in the Writings of Six Volumes as follows.



"Because this time was the beginning of the propagation of one religion, therefore, as the first reason, it is thought he used a Buddha statue according to the utility of times.

As the second reason, the whole people of Japan think an object of worship with Amida. However, the then believer made Shyakyamuni by chance. Why can one not help admiring it?

The third reason is because when the saint Nichiren of our sect founder uses it, that statue of Buddha is the three thousand realms in one mind and is the Buddha having the intrinsically perfect wisdom really.


In addition, Hokibo (Nikko) spread their religion in Usami and Yoshida of Izu while serving Nichiren Shonin constantly and faithfully , and he converted Kongoin Gyoman of the Shingon monk of Atami to the sect of Nichiren. Gyoman changed his name Nichigyo and changed his own residence the Daijoji Temple.

Nichiren who received this great persecution leaves the following writings; The Lotus Sutra is the supreme sacred book. A retribution comes to a person punishing Nichiren who propagate the Lotus Sutra in the Latter-Days of the Law.


“To forbid one who upholds the Lotus Sutra is to forbid Tathagata Shakyamuni. How astonished Brahma, Shakra, and the four heaven kings must be! If not now, when will the vow of 10 ogre daughters to divide the skulls of those who persecute the devotees of the Lotus Sutra into seven?


Ajatashatru, who had imprisoned King Bimbisara of father, early suffered bad diseases such as smallpox and measles. How can a person who has confined the ascetic of the Lotus Sutra not suffer from a bad disease in his present life? ". The Same Salty Flavor’.


The ten daughters of the demon are children of Kishimojin, and they are the style of the fiends or evil spirit. It is said that they will protect a person keeping the Lotus Sutra together with Brahma and Shakra and torment an enemy.

Bimbisara was the King of the ancient Indian big power Makadha. Though he had respected Shakyamuni Buddha thick, his prince Ajase received the temptation of Devadatta and has killed him. Ajase received the reward and produced a bad disease to a whole body, and it is said that he became a serious condition.



This is followed by the 16 "Tokiyori pardons Nichiren".
