Permission to Attain Buddhahood

The Priesthood: 

                          “The sanction of the High Priest is what makes the

                             attainment of Buddhahood possible”

                           NST News, Special Issue, p3


         Nowhere in Nichiren’s teachings a statement is found that one’s

         attainment of Buddhahood depends on the High Priest.

         The attainment of Buddhahood is possible only through the

          individual’s efforts in faith:

“What is most important is that, by chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo alone, you can attain Buddhahood. It will no doubt depend on the strength of your faith” WND1 p 832
