The Third Warning

Conference (58kb)

Nichiren Daishonin returned to Kamakura City guarded by policemen of the bakufu. On April 8th, the bakufu invited Him to the conference as they want to know when the Mongolian Navy would attak Japan. He affirmed "Sutras say nothing about the day. However, according to the air of the heavens, it will undoubtedly be in this year."

Heino Saemon gently informed Him that they were going to approve the mission of Nichiren Shoshu and to offer a real nice temple where He would pray for the security of the nation as same as established sects. But He flatly refused it, because it was not from their faith but from their design for conciliation. As it turned out, they could not get the drift of the caution.
