About Nichiren Shoshu True Buddhism
Three thousand years ago, Shakyamuni of India preached his highest teaching, the Lotus Sutra. This was the purpose of his advent. He predicted the appearance of the True Buddha in the Latter Day of the Law, the age that would begin 2000 years after his passing. On February 16, 1222, Nichiren Daishonin made his advent in Japan, and proved with his life the predictions made in the Lotus Sutra. He is revered as the True Buddha of this time period, the Latter Day of the Law.

Those who maintain faith in the Lotus Sutra are as if in winter, but winter always turns to spring. Never, since ancient times, has anyone heard of or seen winter turn back to autumn. Nor have I heard of a believer in the Lotus Sutra turning back into a common mortal. The sutra states,
If there are people who listen to the [true] Law, then not one will fail to attain Buddhahood
Gosho, p. 832)
