GOSHO

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.

ATTENDING

OKO CEREMONY

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 Quotes

 

April Gosho

"The Bodies and Minds of Ordinary Beings"

 (Shujo shinshin-gosho)

One who offered a mud pie to the Buddha became the sovereign of
Jambudvipa.... Even if a person is unintelligent in mind and
presents only paltry offerings, if he extends them to an individual
who embraces the truth, he will receive tremendous merits. How
much more so would be the merit of those who make sincere
offerings to the true Law?!

(Gosho, p. 1217)

衆生身心御書

つち(土)のもち(餅)ゐを仏に供養せしかば閻浮提の王となれ
り。(中略)設ひ心をろ(愚)かにすこ(少)しきの物なれども、
まことの人に供養すればこう(功)大なり。何に況んや心ざしあ
りてまことの法を供養せん人々をや。(御書1217頁) 

眾生身心御書

將土餅供養佛者,成閻浮提之王。(中略) 縱心愚物少,若供養
真實之人,其功大也。何況有誠心而供養真實之法者。

(御書1217頁)
