This volume, the ninth project of the English Translation
Committee of the Nichiren-shu Overseas Propagation Promotion
Association (NOPPA), constitutes all twenty-three writings
of Buddhist reformer Nichiren Shonin (1222-1282) included
in the Nichiren Shonin Zenshu (Complete Writings of Nichiren
Shonin), Volume 2: Theology2, published in Tokyo in 1996.
The Nichiren Shonin Zenshu is a modern Japanese
Version of Nichiren's original writings, translated and edited
with annotations by modern scholars of Nichiren Buddhism.
Despite its all-inclusive title, the zenshu is highly selective
in that it takes into account only writings considered bibliographically
authentic (i.e.,attested to by original manuscripts ). Among
such texts, those included in the Showa Teihon Nichiren Shonin
Ibun, edited by Rissho Daigaku Nichiren Kyogaku Kenkyu-jo,
are considered the most authoritative, and they provide the
basic texts for this volume.
