It is written in Buddhist lore that the udumbara flower blooms only once every three thousand years.
I respect everyone deeply. I do not despise anyone, not even a little, or look down on anyone with
contempt, because everyone has the capacity to become a Buddha of
Namu-myoho-renge-kyo, if they believe in  Namu-myoho-renge-kyo and practice.

Udumbara Foundation is not a lay organization, nor is it a membership organization. It is a public non-profit, 501(c) organization, established solely for the
purpose of disseminating the True Teachings of Nichiren Daishonin as taught by Nichiren Shoshu Shoshin-kai to the English speaking world.

This site was launched September 11, 2002. Relaunched February 18, 2019

Nichiren Daishonin's signature

The true path of life lies in the affairs of this world. . .
To have a profound knowledge of this world
is itself Buddhism.

                                              Nichiren Daishonin: The Gift of Rice

Discrimination is man's most cunning and
ugliest life of Hell.

It cannot be punished by others and cured,
and it cannot heal
if I do not notice it.

The teaching of Nichiren Daishonin,
that all lives are equal, and all life is qualified
to be Buddha,
is the key to overcoming the life of man's most
cunning and ugliest Hell.
