The Dai Gohonzon is it fake?

Today i received this question about the Dai Gohonzon, from a user on Youtube

hey whats up? i was checking out Nichiren Buddhism. One thing that came up on you tube was the the gohonzon was fake. i did more research i found out the that the dai gohonzon is fake to. i was wodering if you knew anything about this?

Here is my response.

There is some negativity on the internet about SGI.

There is a lot of negativity about Barrack Obama on the internet. There is a lot of negative things about many people or organisations that are trying to bring about change for the greater good.

People will stop at nothing to bring down the good name, of others standing up from the crowd and daring to challenge the self proclaimed authorities/churches/priests etc.

At the end of the day my friend, the Gohonzon exists inside you, Nichiren said, never seek the power outside of you, but from within.

The Gohonzon, the scroll serves as a reminder of an enlightened state, it is nothing more then ink and paper.

It is not a magic talisman.
 
The focus is on your intention, your chanting and your prayer.

Nam myoho renge kyo is the expression of the law of life, and it matters not which group you are affiliated to, what matters is what is in your heart.

We are all practising for the happiness of our selves, our family's and for all of humanity.

We do not practice so that we can stand on a pedestal and point fingers at others saying who is right and who is wrong.

True Buddhism isn't not about judgement or dogma, it is about real life, real people and the human revolution, inherent, in all human beings.

Each one of us has infinite potential, each one of us has Buddha nature.


Do not allow your self to be sucked in to negativity and slander.


Give it a try for your self, and see how it feels in your life, you and nam myoho renge kyo.


Being with chanting 30 minutes every morning, day and night.


Focus on the sound the prayer and focus on the goals for your happiness and the happiness of all humanity.

Best wishes
