     From the Biography of Nichiren Daishonin.


It was this time, they heard the courageous shout of the samurai from the outside. At the same time many Japanese halberds protruded from the window.

Nichiren put the scroll of vol. 5 of the Lotus Sutra in his breast at once.

The door was knocked over, and the group of the samurai invaded with their dirty shoes.

The armoured warriors putting on the headwear shout severally madly.

“Is there Nichiren? Where is Nichiren?”.

The disciples risked their body and were going to block them, but the samurai very easily pushes them away.

All the soldiers glared at Nichiren with the eyes that climb out of the Hell. Furthermore, they caught Hokibo and other disciples who surrounded Nichiren for protecting and they apprehended their necks and threw them outside next from next.

Yoritsuna Tairano came in last, and more intense chaos began.

While Shoibo of the vassal laughed loudly, he pulled out the Lotus Sutra's scroll from the breast of Nichiren and beat Nichiren's head three times. Furthermore, he scattered the scroll of sutras in the hall without being satisfied with it.

Blood is stained with forehead of Nichiren.

Nichiren thought of the wonder of the Lotus Sutra while felt an acute pain.

“The scroll of vol. 5 was used as a stick to beat me, and the very scroll of vol. 5 predicted that the votary of the Lotus Sutra would be beaten with stick. What an extraordinary, prophetic sutra!”.The Acts of the Votary of the Lotus Sutra’

Soldiers scattered a scroll of sutras, stepped it, wound it around the body while laughing.

It is terrible, and the room called the room of the hall is damaged.

Nichiren hit loud voice here.

“That's funny! See Heino Saemonnojo insane! All of you are going to chop a pillar of Japan down just now!”.

Soldiers became quiet in wonder. Though they thought that Nichiren cried and prostrated himself to them, they whispered equally when they saw his stouthearted figure and behavior.

“Is this Buddhist priest really an offender?”.

Yoritsuna Tairano denies it.

“He is the offender. He is a rebel destroying the Kamakura Shogunate”.

Nichiren returns it.

“I am not committing any crime of society. I am the pillar of the ruling clan of this Kanto and I am the sun and the moon and am the mirror and am the eyes. If a country abandons me, the seven disasters will occur without fail!”.

Yoritsuna snapped.

“Nichiren, your last is tonight. This is the consequences of your own deeds. Your star has set. I will give you punishment instead of heavens. You will leave your name in posterity as an evil priest!”.

Nichiren was self-composed.

“Why could that evil priest bring rain in Kamakura?”.

Though Yoritsuna felt tongue-tied for an instant, he cursed him without minding.

“Shut up! The guilt of you is clear. This is the command by the military headquarters, widow nuns and very Kamakura Shogunate. You are my prisoner!”.

Nichiren's words cut Yoritsuna to the heart.

“Such is not the case. This wirepuller is Gokurakuji Ryoukan. Why does the person called the leader of the samurai family take sides with the Buddhist priest who cannot bring even a drop of rain? The evil priest destroying a country is not here!”.

Yoritsuna flew into a rage, and dizziness was caused. He unsheathed a half of his sword, but he desisted and put it in the sheath. He hesitated to kill a person in a city.

“Take bonze Nichiren to the mansion of Lord Nobutoki. This bonze will be taken into custody by Lord Hojo Nobutoki”.
