      "The time has come. The time has come when we can no longer
      contain the urge to do something, but rush out of our houses.
      The time has come to look up to heaven, prostrate ourselves to
      earth, to voice our grief, and to share it with everyone" -- Nichidatsu

      Giving rise to the Genuine Law to bring peace and tranquility to the nation

      Nichidatsu's Longest Walk Speech, revised translation September 30, 2001
      minor updated changes including English explanation of Risshou-ankoku as:

      "Give rise to the Genuine Law to bring peace and tranquility to the nation"

      Kanjin-Honzon, by Nichidatsu, on the meaning of God and of Buddha,
      quoting from the precept to the Gandhi Sevasangh (service society)

      His associate whom Mahatma Gandhi named "Guruji", revered
      teacher, the most venerable Nichidatsu Fujii's spiritual practice
      was embraced by Gandhiji who beat the Dharma drum and
      chanted the prayer brought from the origin of the sun as described
      below while leading the non-violent spiritual-political revolution to
      success in India. Fujii Guruji, as he was known in the West, was
      born on August 6, 1885, and experienced his physical demise on
      January 9, 1985. Following the teachings and prophecies in the
      Lotus Sutra of Buddha describing the Great Law, The One Law,
      he went to India in the 1930's to begin the revival of Buddhism
      there in its birthplace where it had become dormant, after receiving
      the vision of the Dharma drum during a seven day fasting session
      with no food or water or sleep for a full week. Thereafter he
      practiced this walking drum chanting prayer for the rest of his
      life which his successors continue in peacewalks around the world
      to awaken this innate Great Law in the minds of humankind for the
      cause of "Global Peace Now!" The name Nichidatsu in English is
      "The Reach of The Sun." http://www.indiano.org/pagoda

      I witnessed Guruji's below speech delivered at the US Capitol steps,
      July 16, 1978, at the conclusion of the American Indian Movement's
      "Longest Walk" from San Francisco. Uniquely among the speakers,
      from the first word of his prepared speech delivered in Japanese language
      and translated section by section, continuing constantly through the end of
      the last sentence of its English translation when it abruptly stopped, there
      was constant thunder in the distance of the overcast city of Washington DC
      rolling around the 360degree perimenter of the skies -- this date was the
      33rd anniversary of the first atomic bomb test, near Alamogordo, Los Alamos,
      New Mexico. After the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on his 60th
      birthday, what the Hopi Prophecy predicted centuries before as the
      "gourd of ashes falling on the Earth two times", ie, Hiroshima and Nagasaki,
      Nichidatsu Fujii recognized these events and what they could lead to as the
      fulfillment of the prophecy in the Lotus Sutra regarding the "great
      conflagration when it is burning" and how, thereby inspired to revive the
      custom of building the Peace Pagodas (Stupas) as an offering, to avert what
      then became clearly understood as the threat of global nuclear holocaust
      by giving rise to the Genuine Law, the Great Law, The One Law by which
      God and nature operate in the world, the same law by which The One God
      operates in the world as described by the Torah and Talmud of Judaism,
      the same natural law which Einstein believed could be rendered into a
      simple set of equations to describe all of physical reality, all events in
      nature no matter where and no matter when, with 100% certainty, a set
      of equations he termed a "unified field theory." Along with the same
      teachings which predicted this "modern age of the declined law" and its
      threat of a great global conflagration, was also included the teaching of
      how to avert this threat and bring about peace and tranquility through
      giving rise to the Great Law (awakening the mind of humanity to its patent
      existence) by "psi-phenomenological means" that focus psychically the
      physical sounding of the syllables Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo.

      This below speech is very important because it is one of the very few
      places one will find any prominent and wise teacher of Buddhism (which
      HH Dalai Lama calls a "science of the mind") discussing the very nature
      and operating principle of The One God itself. It should be noted here that
      unlike other Buddhist interpretations which offer an "afterlife" of
      "re-incarnation", the interpretation offered by The Prophet of The Genuine
      Law, Nichiren, over 700 years ago, and experienced as fulfillment of
      prophecy by his successor Nichidatsu in the 20th Century, is based on the
      precept of "eternal life" on Earth.

      I sincerely believe that if his speech had been understood and accepted in
      1978, we would not be experiencing the war crisis that we are facing today.

      The whole world is confused right now.

      For any successful resolution of the misunderstandings responsible for the
      September 11, 2001, attacks on America, and of the looming escalation of
      hostilities portended by plans for an extended "war on terrorism", not only
      must opposing religious and political viewpoints be reconciled but the very
      nature of the faith and belief applied to them must first be better
      understood for the absolution of prejudice, hatred and fear.

      "Why would God let this happen?" This is a common question now among
      adherents to the Christian, Judaic, and Islamic Faiths who are wrestling
      with doubts and secular distractions to their belief in The One God by whose
      Will and according to whose Law all things happen, always, everywhere.

      For adherents to religious, spiritual, and scientific disciplines who view
      the human mind as the creator of their own worlds, this question becomes:
      "How can the mind of humankind be brought into harmony with the natural
      order so that everyone can just live together in peace and harmony."

      The following speech/message is offered for examination and discussion of
      the answers to these questions as they relate to the notion of the sovereign
      power of the state and the very nature of the Almighty God, The One God
      purportedly worshipped by Christians, Moslems and Jews alike as The God of

      No matter what one believes is the cause of the September 11, 2001, hijack
      attacks on America, no matter who or what one believes is responsible
      for the underlying prejudicial hostilities extistent between followers of
      seemingly conflicting religious and political ideologies and policies which
      appear to be at the root of this cause, and no matter what kind of
      punishment one thinks is appropriate, the key question is:

      "What can be done to correct the fundamental errors in human thinking at the
      root of all these, so as to not only prevent such hostilities in the future
      but to thereby also bring about a true and lasting condition of peace,
      justice, and prosperity throughout the various societies of human beings
      inhabiting our beloved planet Earth?"

      For reasons explained below I am convinced the answers to all of
      these questions will soon become apparent if this message can be
      spread to all parties concerned with the ramifications of
      September 11, 2001.

      We are at a unique point in history to effect these results, not only
      because of this 9-11 "21st Century Pearl Harbor Attack" and the resultant
      shock beginning to awaken human conscience, but also because we are
      approaching in 84 days the December 25, 2001, traditionally observed
      2000th birthday anniversary of Jesus of Nazareth who is called Christ by
      Christians and who is regarded both as a Prophet of Islam and also as a Jew.

      If the protagonists in this upcoming military escalation portending a Third
      World War, with the unimaginable potential consequences of a global nuclear
      holocaust, really want to resolve human belligerencies then a "Global
      Cessation of Hostilities" should be immediately declared worldwide to last
      until this date where every flag on every flagpole around the world is flown
      from now until then at half-mast in consideration of mourning, remorse,
      repentence, and of the message of peace and love propounded by this
      Great Sage of Humankind whose birth is the very basis of the prevalently
      used arbitrary calendar of the modern world.

      In this way all of humanity might best use the balance of these next short
      three months to deeply reflect, meditate, pray, council, discuss, and
      understand what needs to be better understood and done to make sure that
      nothing like what happened on September 11, 2001, or on August 6 & 9, 1945,
      will ever happen again in human history. In this way we might reach this
      date, which "technically" marks the end of the Second Millennium and the
      beginning of the Third Millennium after this traditionially observed
      birthdate, with a deeper understanding of the kinship in God's image of all
      humankind related to all life on Earth as one family of life, Our Family of

      During this time in respect of this United Nations declared "Decade of
      Creating a Culture of Peace for the 21st Century" humanity might better
      study the overlooked relevant deep messages of the past from saints,
      sages, scientists, and religious teachers of all denominations, as well as
      historical precedents for such a culture of peace begun by violent peoples
      who changed, simply by understanding and embracing the Great Law of
      peace, into leaders of long-lasting peaceful cultures such as the ancient
      indigenous Iroquois Six Nations Confederacy and the 500 year period of
      no war, no crime, and no violence begun in the reign of ancient India's
      King Ashoka.

      Certainly if human beings can put a man on the moon we can understand these
      things if we calmly take the time to examine and study them carefully.

      The Longest Walk

      By the Most Venerable Nichidatsu Fujii

      July 16, 1978 in Washington D. C.

      Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo
      Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo
      Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo

      Here at Washington DC in North America, the great gathering of The Longest
      Walk is taking place today. This walk began on February 11th this year from
      a small island in the San Francisco Bay. The walkers tread through
      uninhabited deserts, slept in 12,000 feet snow covered mountains, walked
      against strong wind and rain, and finally have arrived in Washington DC in
      the face of all hardship without a single dropout after covering 30 to 80
      kilometers a day. The forefathers of the Native Americans were repeatedly
      forced to walk westward by the violence of the European refugees who landed
      on the East Coast. Every single one of these walks left a trail of tears, a
      trail of blood. Women and children were slaughtered, and many died of
      starvation and the frigid weather. It is said that approximately 20 million
      people were sacrificed. Currently, the United States of America is
      introducing a series of bad bills to abuse the power of the state in an
      attempt to annihilate the surviving Indian population. The Indian people
      have widely appealed to the world community their just cause in a truly
      spiritual way to protect their right to survival. They have organized The
      Longest Walk in hope to push aside the violence of the US government with

      Historically, the modern state is built on a superstition known as the
      "reason d' Etat (reason of state)". Its supreme principle of conduct is
      defined by need and convenience in sustaining the state's status quo. If
      this is the case, the state deems itself sanctioned to disregard various
      laws and statues, morals and religion in the name of preserving and
      fortifying itself. All the laws and statutes and social morals have value
      only to the extent that they are considered to be useful in preserving and
      reinforcing the state. The sovereign power of the state is affirmed as
      sacred. The Machiavellian realism in politics, which is craftiness,
      duplicity and manipulation, allow laws to be disregarded as well as
      deliberately misinterpreted.

      Another characteristic of the modern state is in the use of Christian
      missionaries, who originally should be advocates of peace, as proxies of
      state power in igniting various wars. The ill reputation of Christian
      missionaries is due to their association with state power that they served.
      Even the use of nuclear weapons would have to be accepted if we are to
      embrace the superstition of reason d' Etat, the myth of the sacredness of
      the sovereign state. Under this rational the United States used nuclear
      weapons in Asia, and subsequently has been repeatedly blackmailing the rest
      of humanity without hesitation by publicly referring to their possible use.
      If there is land White America needs, everyone who lives there must
      evacuate. Just as hares and snakes are driven away, so are the people who
      reside there. This is what is known as the American pioneering spirit.
      This thinking that derives from the myth of state sovereignty leads to
      violent acts. Dignity and independence of the Native American nations were
      denied by violent acts committed under state sovereignty. How could these
      people whose very survival is at stake not see this state as their sworn

      On November 24, 1961, the United Nations General Assembly presented "The
      Declaration on Banning the Use of Nuclear Weapons". It says: "Believing
      that the use of weapons of mass destruction, such as nuclear and
      thermo-nuclear weapons, is a direct negation of the high ideals and
      objective which the United Nations has been established to achieve through
      the protection of succeeding generations from the scourge of war and through
      the preservation and promotion of their cultures, declares that the use of
      nuclear and thermo-nuclear weapons would exceed even the scope of war and
      cause indiscriminate suffering and destruction to mankind and civilization
      and, as such, is contrary to the rules of international law and to the laws
      of humanity; the use of nuclear and thermo-nuclear weapons is a war directed
      not against an enemy or enemies alone but also against mankind in general,
      since the peoples of the world not involved in such a war will be subjected
      to all the evils generated by the use of such weapons. Any state using
      nuclear and thermo-nuclear weapons is to be considered as violating the
      Charter of the United Nations, as acting contrary to the laws of humanity
      and as committing a crime against mankind and civilization."

      On August 6, 1945 in Hiroshima, and on August 9 in Nagasaki, humanity
      experienced the very first calamity of the atomic bombing. It was this
      country, the United States, who unleashed these bombs. The then Commander
      in Chief, General MacArthur, praised the achievements of the atomic bombing
      claiming that it quickened the termination of the war. He later further
      explained that the atomic bombing was necessary to protect the many lives of
      young American solders. No one in the United States acknowledged the
      criminality of the atomic bombing. In reckless intoxication with the
      ecstasy of victory and worshipping nuclear weapons as guardians of peace,
      the United States devoted itself with fervor to the development, production
      and stockpiling of nuclear weapons even after the war. Regardless of the
      enormity of the disaster that nuclear weapons cause humanity, the American
      people accepted the sacredness of nuclear weapons because they were
      supported by justification of righteousness that they are for the sake of
      "national security" and "in the interest of the people."

      At the 32nd General Assembly of the United Nations in 1977, Dr. Waldheim,
      Secretary General of the United Nations, called for the opening of the
      United Nations Special Session on Disarmament, saying that "The threat of
      self destruction by nuclear war is the greatest danger confronting the
      world. The enormous amount of stockpiling and accuracy of nuclear weapons
      are further enhancing the danger of the final annihilation of mankind. It
      has become more evident that the effective security cannot be obtained by
      the expansion of arms. The very basis which can eliminate the cause of
      tension and conflicts, and establish reciprocal international cooperation,
      can be found in disarmament."

      The United States has already used nuclear weapons. Not a single human soul
      will praise her victory. History shall eternally condemn the criminality of
      the atomic bombing by the United States. The United States is firstly, a
      violator of the UN Charter. Secondly, it is a violator of humanity.
      Thirdly, it is an enemy to humanity that could bring calamity to the whole
      of humankind. Fourthly, it is a criminal capable of destroying
      civilization. When we look at world affairs we should not merely see them
      in the context of their current gloomy situation. The world situation is by
      no means static which remains the same; it can always be changed. Today
      with the extreme development of nuclear weapons and humanity's knowledge of
      them, the only way to prevent humanity from the catastrophe it faces is to
      eliminate war itself. We must work with all our might for complete
      disarmament. General and complete disarmament is no longer an exercise of
      the mind, but is the most realistic solution. We are about to bury the era
      of warfare, the era of violence, the era of murder and destruction.

      No measures that are taken in anticipation of possible future conflicts or
      war will enable us to build true peace. The issue that takes precedence
      over all others to create genuine peace is the issue of removing fear and
      mistrust among confronting modern nations. Elimination of fear and mistrust
      is a purely spiritual issue, which religions have repeatedly taught from
      ancient times. When we believe in the Almighty God our fear shall
      disappear. We believe in the Almighty God to dispel our fear. We fear
      others when we suspect they are evil. If we believe in the goodness of
      others we will no longer fear them. We do not believe in God because we
      have seen His omnipotence. We seek to see God's omnipotence by believing
      in Him. We do not believe in the goodness of others because we have seen
      their goodness. When we believe in the goodness of others we can dispel our
      own fear and we become capable of having amicable associations with them.
      Believing in the omnipotence of God whom we cannot actually see is a
      disciplinary practice of the mind enabling us to believe in the goodness in
      others, which we cannot see.

      Once we deny the belief of the absolute state sovereignty, and after we
      eliminate all armament including nuclear weapons and completely bring an end
      to war, we must create a new civilization and an era of perpetual peace.
      However, the people who will be there are the same people who were dependent
      on self-defense through arms. The most important thing required is the
      spiritual foundation for disarmament, namely, acts of conscience as human
      beings. The development in science served to construct the civilization of
      material yet incurred the crisis of annihilation of humanity. The myth of
      absolute state sovereignty is another spiritual ailment, which is a result
      of heightened arrogance and avarice. No matter how much we change systems
      or bring our minds together, there is no prospect in dispelling mutual fear
      and mistrust unless people open up their gate to spiritual change.
      Spiritual transformation is nothing to be ashamed of. Buddhism teaches that
      when we free ourselves from delusions we become enlightened.

      The civilization of the new era, the era of perpetual peace, will be the
      spiritual civilization. The universal core of the spiritual civilization is
      the civilization of religion.

      Maha Bodhisattva Nichiren called this Risshou-ankoku (give rise to the
      Genuine Law to bring peace and tranquility to the nation). The religious
      faith that the Native Americans have carried down to this day will be the
      fountainhead for creating lasting peace in the future. While no one visits
      the graves of General MacArthur or Harry Truman today, tens of thousands of
      people gather and mourn the sacrifice of Hiroshima and Nagasaki each year.

      by the The Most Venerable Nichidatsu Fujii --

      -- ( From the "precept to the Gandhi Sevasangh"):

      "We are said to be human through gradual steps of nature. However, we were
      born as human beings to meet God which exists in our minds. In fact, this
      differentiates man from animal existence. To meet God is a privilege given
      to all those who have life.

      We can not perceive God unless we are willing to abandon
      our physical brutality and awaken as well as develop the spirit of
      nonviolence and truth which is hidden in the minds of individuals. We can
      only meet God through faith."

      -- ( From the "precept to the Gandhi Sevasangh")

      According to the theory of evolution man evolved from apes.
      Bestiality is therefore said to be an inherent part of human
      beings. Yet, the characteristics of the evolved man are in his
      ability to reflect, to attempt to control and become free from his
      physical desires and beastliness, and to discover the sublime
      God which is invisible and hidden in one's mind and to
      worship it. This act is called religion. Spiritual life is what
      makes man unique. It is not seen in any other animals beside
      man. Progress and development in human society is marked
      by the distinguishing measure of discovering God and the
      profound pursuit of Truth. Recently, progress in human
      society has been in materials alone. Progress in the true sense
      must be spiritual. There is a difference. If it is shallow the
      society becomes brutal; if it is deep it becomes peaceful.
      Gandhiji said that to discover God and to worship God
      becomes possible based on spiritual faith that originates from
      developing the spirit of nonviolence and pursuit of truth which
      are hidden in one's mind.

      Sakyamuni Buddha was the most highly esteemed being
      in the human world. He was born, lived and died in the human
      world. He is revered because while he lived a life like anyone
      else he attained Buddhahood of peerless dignity. The innate
      quality that leads to Buddhahood just like Sakyamuni Buddha
      is inherent in the mind of every person. This is called the
      "Buddha nature". Lord Sakyamuni Buddha preached in the
      Maha-Parinivarna Sutra that all living creatures posses
      Buddha nature. Sakyamuni Buddha is a manifestation of the
      Buddha nature in a human body in it's fullest way.

      Buddha nature does not imply that there is a Buddha
      within our minds awaiting to become complete. It is a Buddha
      immemorial, yet it's transcendental power and light are yet to
      manifest in the human mind. When we believe in the presence
      of the eternal Buddha who resides in our minds, the purpose
      of our lives becomes dignified. We will see no reason to be
      arrogant to anyone, and it would become natural for us to
      venerate others. The ancient Buddha in our mind and the
      ancient Buddha in the minds of others are one and the same.

      When the Buddha in our minds worships the Buddha in the
      minds of others, in turn the Buddha in the minds of others
      worships the Buddha who resides within us. When we bow in
      veneration towards the mirror, our reflection in the mirror
      bows back. Veneration between oneself and others becomes
      one and inseparable. That is when peace becomes a reality and
      there would be no war. The voice of our ancient Buddha was
      recorded as 84 thousand Sutras expounded through the mouth
      of the World Honored One, Sakyamuni Buddha. However, the
      modern civilization cannot hear or see a single phrase or
      gatha. Herein lies the grief and agony of the modern civilization.

      "And wishing to see the Buddha
      With all their hearts,
      They do not spare their lives ..."

      ------from The Lotus Sutra Chapter 16
      "The Eternal Life of the Tathagata"

      This half gatha is where the spiritual civilization originated
      from. Human beings are not animals of mere physical
      existence made of flesh. The undivided heart and mind
      wishing to see the invisible God, one's ancient Buddha, the
      Truth of Peace, becomes God, the Truth and the ancient
      Buddha. Maha Bodhisattva Nichiren taught that the Buddha is
      in the earnestness to see the Buddha. The earnestness of the
      heart and mind to see the Buddha is the privilege of man
      Gandhiji referred to. This is spiritual activity.
