365 Days of Justice

Today, all those lies and malicious slanders have been put to rest, and the truth has triumphed. The mentors and disciples of Soka have won. Today across the globe, the Soka Gakkai and its first three presidents are highly praised and regarded as shining lights of hope for all humanity.

HL & I discussed over internet chat today on whether will Danto members receive benefit when they chant.
We came to a conclusion that the Danto members will not receive benefits even if they chant NMHRGK. It is because they are chanting with a total different intend from Nichiren Daishonin.
The whole tenet of Daishonin Buddhism is to make common people realize the great potential in us called Buddhahood. This was quite a revolutionary philosophy on how one should look at Buddhism and religion as a whole in the 13th century. It was because of this revolutionary view about the truth of Buddhism that created jealousy and hatred among the well established religious leaders and priests. They noticed their position and importance in the religious world has been threatened. Hence, they plotted unscrupulous schemes with the government to bring Nichiren Daishonin down. However, Nichiren Daishonin with his great compassion to bring to light the real truth about Buddhism, he did not compromise a single bit. Daishonin taught as long as one realize they possess this Buddhahood in them and recognize this truth, one is called a Buddha; the ignorant ones are common mortals. This is the real benefit of practicing Daishonin's Buddhism, recognizing we are the Buddha.
However, the Nikken Sect denied this truth from its believers, the Dantos. They were taught their Buddhahood in them are different from the Buddhahood Daishonin mentioned. They still need the priests to bring them the real benefits of Daishonin's Buddhism. Isn't this the total opposite of what Daishonin was fighting for?
The so-called benefits the Dantos claim that they receive are mere results of action they took to overcome their problems. Even people with a strong confident but without chanting will be able to achieve that.
