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. We can gain a correct understanding of these writings only by following the directions of our High Priest, who has received the transmission of the essential principles of true Buddhism.
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
"Letter to Oto gozen"
The Great Teacher Miaole stated: “The more resolute one’s faith,
the stronger the deities’ protection.” When people uphold solid
faith, they definitely will receive the powerful protection of the
deities. I am saying this for your sake. I cannot praise you enough
for the faith that you have maintained. Now you must strengthen it
ever more. Be convinced that the Ten Demon Goddess Daughters
will then provide you increasingly powerful protection. You will
not need to look for any other examples.
(Gosho, p. 897)
