Honmon Butsuryushu

The Honmon Butsuryū-shū (本門佛立宗) is a branch of Nichiren Buddhism founded by Nagamatsu Nissen (長松 日扇; 1817–1890) in 1857 and is regarded as the first lay movement devoted to the Lotus Sutra and the teachings of Master Nichiren Daishonin. HBS introduced a priesthood in 1947 and are therefore sometimes also referred to as a traditional or orthodox Nichiren school.

 

Honmon Butsuryu Shu members practice in the tradition of Nichiren’s disciple Daikoku Ajari Nichiro (1245-1320) and consider Keirin-bo Nichiryu Daishonin (慶林坊日隆, 1385-1464) to be the second greatest leader of our school. Our teachings and practice are fundamentally based in the “Honmon” (8 chapters) of the Lotus Sutra. Our head temple is the Yūsei-ji located in Kyoto.
