Mt. Minobu (60kb)

Old asian proverb says that you should retire after three times of being disregarded of your warning. In the case of Nichiren Daishonin, the first one was by "The Rissho Ankoku Ron", the second was at Matsuga-yatsu Valley when He was arrested, and the last was at the conference after Sado Exile.

The load of Minobu, Hakiri Sanenaga, had been become a believer of Nichiren by the shakubuku of Priest Nikko. Nichiren Daishonin decided to retire into Mt. Minobu. He had to establish the foundation of Nichiren Shoshu for the everlasting salvation of Mappo Ages: the system of doctrine by writing many go-shoes, the training of priests and the building the go-honzon of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
