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

Gosho Quote for October 2017


Reply to Ueno

 (Ueno dono-gohenji)


Among contemporary believers in the Lotus Sutra, there are some who have faith like fire and others who have faith like flowing water. Those with faith like fire, fervently burn with passion when they listen to the teachings of the Lotus Sutra, but when alone, are apt to forsake their faith. On the other hand, those with faith like flowing water always persist in their practice of the Lotus Sutra, never discarding their faith. Because you continue to visit me, regardless of your circumstances, it can be said that your faith resembles flowing water. This deserves my genuine respect.

(Gosho, pp. 1206 - 1207)
