What Makes Kempon Hokke Different?

One of the things that attracted me to Kempon Hokke years ago is the simplicity of the practice. Kyogan Sojo is what sets this school of Nichiren Buddhism apart. Kyogan Sojo means each practitioner’s Buddhahood is realized through the succession of the scrolls of the Lotus Sutra, not through any “special transmission,” or person, or group or organization. If a person really wants to learn the right way to practice, follow the teachings of Nichiren and the Lotus Sutra. Good teachers can also make the difference!

We don't need any special meetings or a "Sensei".  Everything you need is contained in the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren Shonin's writings.  For a list of Nichiren's authentic writings, go here:

  1. Thank you for providing that list. Great info. I have even passed that around to other Buddhist sect people.
