are the writings of the Daishonin, our founder. In Nichiren Shoshu, the Gosho writings are upheld as exemplary instructions - a mirror of faith - by which to devote ourselves to faith, practice, and study.

on the second Sunday of every month. In the Oko Ceremony, after the Kenzen offering, the recitation of the sutra, and the chanting of Daimoku, the priest presents a sermon, based on the Gosho. The Oko lecture is profoundly significant. Therefore, it is essential for us to attend this sermon together with our families each month without fail and offer our sincerest gratitude to the Three Treasures.

Monthly Gosho Quote

The True Entity of All Phenomena Sep.2023

(Shoho jisso-sho)

Whatever may happen, you now must practice assiduously, maintain your
faith as a votary of the Lotus Sutra, and be a follower of Nichiren
throughout your life. If your mind is one with Nichiren, you must be one
of the Bodhisattvas of the Earth. ...In the Latter Day of the Law, there are
no inequalities among those who propagate Myoho-Renge-Kyo, be they
men or women. Without the advent of the Bodhisattva of the Earth, they
could not chant the Daimoku. (Gosho, p. 666)
