15, Nikko who succeeds to Nichiren.

15, Nikko who succeeds to Nichiren.

Nichiren repeatedly preached it that Japan would fall by the Mongolia forces.

Mongolia attacked Japan at 140,000 soldiers and 4,400 warships again in 1281.

Though Mongolia approached Japan on great boats by the force that conquered China, they encountered a typhoon and were defeated.

Nichiren who advocated the destruction of the country to this result had kept silence, but the Buddhist priest of various sects boasted that it was the result of own prayer.

Nichikan of the 26 generation in Fuji Taisekiji temple said, "Because various gods received the commandments from the sect founder Nichiren, gods helped the country". Nichikan is declaring that the victory of Japan is an achievement of Nichiren. (Commentary of ' The Duty of Repaying Good Will', Part One).

Nichiren who became 61 years old realized that the death was approaching to him and, in September 1282, he selected six chief priests.

Nissho Ben Ajari (62 years old).

Nichiro Daikoku Ajari (38 years old).

Nikko Byakuren Ajari (37 years old).

Niko Sado Ajari (39 years old).

Nicho Iyo Ajari (31 years old).

Nichiji Renge Ajari (33 years old).

Nichiren named his six disciples in order of entering the sect from past. The eldest was Nissho, 62, and the other five priests were all in their 30s.

Moreover, Nichiren appointed Byakuren Ajari Nikko from six people as the successor.

Nichiren preaches the reason.

“Especially, an announcement has already been made that six people were selected as the major disciples. However, the essence of the Lotus Sutra is directly conveyed only to a single person. I, Nichiren, have appointed Byakuren Ajari Nikko as the leader of the priests, and have entrusted him with my doctrines from cover to cover. From the leading senior priests to each individual disciple, all must obey this. As same as me, to the far-off future all of you must revere the successive leaders who would inherit the Law from Nikko. In addition, you should place the mandala of the direct line, to the main hall, whom Nikko inherited as the formal Gohonzon, even if the Buddhist priests who are the five people and followers widen this in all countries including Japan and Jambudvipa, the whole world. What is the reason? When Buddha was alive and after Buddha passed away, though these are different, the ceremony of the commission is same. For example, though there were the direct followers like the great four people and the sixty thousand bodhisattvas, Buddha decided Jogyo Bodhisattva as the great leader entrusted with the Law of essence. It is the same again now. Though there are six person and followers, and the several disciples, I determine it as the general who entrusts Nikko with the Law of essence.

Besides, he played a role as the vanguard, on a day of the banishment to an island of the Kocho year, and at the time of banishment of the Bun'ei year, and during either the period when I received other great calamity in various place, he acted as like a shadow following the form of Nichiren. Who will doubt this? Besides, the origin of the faiths of land steward of Mount Minobu is because Nikko civilized him with effort. My retirement is because Nikko have been familiar with Mimaki of the country of Kai”. ‘One Hundred and Six Clauses’.
