The meaning of the characters
on the Gohonzon of Nichiren Buddhism can be confusing even
to those who read Japanese. The interested practitioner could
study the symbolic Buddhas, bodhisattvas, demons, dragons,
kings and other beings represented by the thirteenth century
Buddhist teacher Nichiren Shonin on his calligraphic Mandala.
However, before Lotus World on would have needed a small library
of books to find all of the characters represented.
Finally, the Nichiren Buddhist
Temple of San Jose has published a book that will allow everyone
with an interest in Buddhism to find all of their answers
in one slim volume. Lotus World provides the reader with all
of the detail one might desire, from the story of the characters
to how they are represented in art. There is even useful section
describing the overall world-view necessary to understand
the hierarchy of beings.
