Writings of Nichiren Shonin
DOCTRINE 2

The Lotus Sutra


This volume, the ninth project of the English Translation
Committee of the Nichiren-shu Overseas Propagation Promotion Association (NOPPA), constitutes all twenty-three writings of Buddhist reformer Nichiren Shonin (1222-1282) included in the Nichiren Shonin Zenshu (Complete Writings of Nichiren Shonin), Volume 2: Theology2, published in Tokyo in 1996.

The Nichiren Shonin Zenshu is a modern Japanese Version of Nichiren's original writings, translated and edited with annotations by modern scholars of Nichiren Buddhism. Despite its all-inclusive title, the zenshu is highly selective in that it takes into account only writings considered bibliographically authentic (i.e.,attested to by original manuscripts ). Among such texts, those included in the Showa Teihon Nichiren Shonin Ibun, edited by Rissho Daigaku Nichiren Kyogaku Kenkyu-jo, are considered the most authoritative, and they provide the basic texts for this volume.
