"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

DCW Message of October 2, 2001 (3M-84)*  Mahatma Gandhi's Birthday:
               "I have come to light the lamp of love in your hearts"

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.

-- ( 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.
