@JigokuCake: Shinto also received blowback for its Meiji era entanglement with state bureaucracy, although it was from the occupied government who unfairly scapegoated Shinto for Japan's involvement in the war. The result was vast overreach in the form of the Shinto Directive

It was there he met the monk Nikken, who inducted him into Nichiren Buddhism. 19 years later, after the Nose clan's revival from Yoritsugu's alliance with Ieyasu Tokugawa, he donated part of the clan's territory to Nikken so the monk could establish Buddhist facilities there. https://t.co/ek13zdq86e
: The clan has previously been devoted to Chintaku Reifujin, Onmyodo's deity of the north star and Big Dipper. Nikken formally integrated this deity into the theology he taught and allegedly carved the main statue there himself, meaning he invented the "Nose Myoken."

I've long been interested in the "Nose Myoken," a representation of the Bodhisattva that strays quite a bit from conventional Buddhist iconography. I found the history behind it on the website for Mt. Myoken. Surprisingly it starts at the Honnoji Incident and death of Nobunaga. https://t.co/Sq2BDsbRex

Checked out a commentary on Vimalakirti Sutra attributed to Prince Shotoku hoping it would shed light on the revelation of Akshobhya's Pure Land. Surprisingly there's little commentary on this, despite it being the climax. Basically "this echoes teachers from a previous chapter"
The Vimalakirti Sutra is one of my favorites. It's one of the oldest Mahayana sutras, has an immense amount of discourse on sunyata and non-duality, and some fantastical mind-bending imagery. However, there were never any schools that adopted it as a central text. Crazy.

Vimalakirti is meant to portray the archetype of the perfect layman He understands Buddhist concepts and philosophy better than even the Buddha's trusted sravakas and bodhisattva, and always conducts himself with perfect virtue and honor despite being a working man with a family https://t.co/6e2Ks7PdJq
: The Threefold Lotus Sutra, Threefold Pure Land Sutra, and the works of Zen philosophers all produced Buddhist movements with large amounts of lay followers, yet the Sutra specifically about the holiness of laymen did not? Pretty ironic.

@ZengdaWei OP claimed that Buddhism was Nihilism, which is why I specified that. The Dhammapada states "life is dear to all" and describes the world as "like a royal chariot." Not a philosophy that views life itself as undesirable, just life ruled by the passions.

Kukai's "The Meanings of Sound, Sign, and Reality" is short, but only because it's meant to prove a specific theological point, namely that the entirety of reality as we know it, which is made up of "signs" that we interpret, can be represented within the language of mantra. https://t.co/vYFvclHTdD https://t.co/zsG2ndVkM9
: There's some interesting overlap with Kabbalah here, mostly in the comparison of the five "seed" syllables to the five "seed" elements. Not really a topic I could theorize much on given my limited knowledge-base, but I'll chalk it up as a multiple independent discovery.

He elaborates on this near the end of the treatise by using the visual of "Indra's Net" originally described in the Flower Adornment Sutra. Indra's Net evokes a vast ocean interconnected "systems of worlds." This is viewed by Kukai in a metaphysical sense https://t.co/9xj9REkItD https://t.co/hiHQjoz64i
: In summation, each being themselves is a "Buddha" in possession of their own karma and three bodies, while also simultaneously existing in all *realms." Undifferentiated, these are also all simultaneously aspects of the ultimate reality of Mahavairocana Tathagata's "bodies."

Interesting example of Shinto folklore that was lost at some point. In one (and only one) version of the Izanagi and Izanami creation story, the two are reconciled by a mysterious Kami named Kukurihime who appears and says... Something. No text specifies what exactly was said. https://t.co/Mc2mfG7jTz
: Kukurihime no Kami is identified with the volcano god Hakusan, while some Buddhists consider her an ancient incarnation of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara (Kannon).

Finished Kanjin no Honzon Sho (The True Object of Worship), another of Nichiren's major writings. It was written after Kaimoku Sho, and elaborates on some of the concepts from that book, but it's mostly an explanation behind Nichiren creating the gohonzon

@JigokuCake: Anyway, this thread has gone on for long enough. Will make another one soon (I have some notes on the Vimalakirti Sutra that I might turn into a thread idk). To finish off, here's a weird illustrated version of the gohonzon I found. Kinda cool.

Soka Gakkai claims that these documents are forgeries, and they have a definite motive behind that Fudo & Acala are heavily associated with the rival Shingon sect, as is Dainichi. If that translation is correct, Nichiren would be confirming belief of Dainichi as the first Buddha https://t.co/3CcKcSSDv9
: In reality, Dainichi Nyorai is just one form of the Eternal Buddha (or one of the "3 bodies"). The Flower Adornment Sutra also used the names Shakyamuni and Dainichi interchangeably, as Shakyamuni preached the sutra AS Dainichi, something Nichiren notes in his writing.

One feature of the gohonzon that was sadly not discussed was the inclusion of wrathful deities Fudo and Acala, who Nichiren claimed visited him in dreams. The text on his memorandums for these dreams reads something like "23 generations from Dainichi Nyorai to Nichiren." https://t.co/ULleLyVl3J

You may notice that he claims the "Bodhisattvas of the Earth" will establish the object of worship and not himself.

Nichiren also elaborates on the idea that the "true object of worship" has never been established in Japan.

The explanation is fairly simple: according to the Lotus Sutra, Shakyamuni passed on the true doctrine to only his original students, the "Bodhisattvas of the Earth." The other bodhisattvas were from other worlds, while our saha world is meant to become the true "pure land"... https://t.co/3KRD8VAkRR

Inari Okami is something of an interesting anomaly in Shinto. Having come into prominence after the famous Shinto texts were written, there's little in the way of authoritative literature on the Kami. Because of this, depictions of Inari vary wildly, from old man to young woman. https://t.co/brAhfH70fT
: Many of the oldest shrines dedicated to Inari instead enshrine several agriculture-related deities from the Shinto literature. This, combined with the varied depictions in iconography, have led to the possibility that "Inari" could be viewed as a sort of title for several Kami.
