ON ADMONISHING SLANDER
Nichiren Daishonin's teacher, Dozenbo, carved Amida Buddha statutes. The
Daishonin told him, "If you write Namu Amida Butsu six times you will fall into
hell six times. If you write it seven times, you will fall into hell seven times. You
can't make an object of worship half way; your whole self goes into making an
object of worship." The Daishonin warned Dozenbo of his fate directly, and at
the time the slander was being committed.
