      Can it really be diminished though ? If it is the only thing a person
      needs to do, is it less effective in some way if the person doing it
      believes other things are necessary ? Does Daimoku only work properly
      if the person chanting it shares your correct understanding of what
      Nichiren said, and earns the right to describe themselves as Nichiren
      Buddhists ?

          During the 80's the SGI added "Zange". Thus included explorations of
          Consciousnsss. Also discreet instructions to do metta cultivation and
          Chakra visualizations. What were Tsuji & Izumi thinking?
