About Nichiren Shoshu
Head Temple Taisekiji
Nichiren Shoshu is the name of the denomination that follows the orthodox teachings of True Buddhism as taught by Nichiren Daishonin, the True Buddha, who made his advent in Japan in 1222. Nichiren Shoshu has temples and propagation centers worldwide and actively propagates the true teachings of Nichiren Daishonin. The practice of Nichiren Shoshu True Buddhism brings about powerful benefits and positive changes to the lives of those who practice it.
The ultimate goals are the attainment of enlightenment by the individual and, through widely spreading True Buddhism, the establishment of a purified and peaceful world where all people can enjoy happy lives together.
The daily practice consists of chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo and reciting a chapter-and-a-half of the Lotus Sutra, called Gongyo, to the True Object of Worship called the Gohonzon. There are seven temples in the United States and many local area meeting places. All are invited to come learn about Nichiren Shoshu True Buddhism and experience its beneficial power. This site provides temple locations, articles, and links to other related Nichiren Shoshu sites. You can learn more about this wonderful practice at NST.org.

The Oral Transmission on
the Attainment of Enlightenment of Insentient Beings
(Sōmoku jōbutsu kuketsu)
Myoho indicates the attainment of enlightenment of sentient beings. Renge
signifies the attainment of enlightenment of insentient beings. Sentient beings
attain enlightenment in this lifetime, while after death, they turn into
insentient beings and attain enlightenment. Attainment of enlightenment in this
lifetime and after death represents the attainment of enlightenment of sentient
and insentient beings. Based on the principle of the attainment of
enlightenment of plants and trees, all living beings can attain enlightenment
after death by having tōba tablets erected and the eye-opening ceremony
