Upholding the "Succession Through the Scrolls of the Sutra" and, in the spirit of Nichiren as direct teacher, the "Hokekyo of the Master of Teachings (Lord Shakya) and the Letters of Nichiren Shonin", just as they are without substitution is the function of the Kempon Hokke Shu. Taking as its aim the establishment of the Country of the Buddha (the Precept Platform of the Original Doctrine), the Kempon Hokke strives to form a "Land of Peace" without illness, poverty or strife by means of faith in the Hokekyo, through the realization of the right doctrine of "Establishing Orthodoxy to Make the Country Peaceful" (Rissho ankoku). The founder, the Orthodox Teacher (shoshi) Nichiju, who took the Sutra text and Nichiren's Letters as absolute and proclaimed the "Succession Through the Scrolls of the Sutra" (kyogan sojo), who spread the teaching with the cry, "I adhere directly to Nichiren Daishonin", would be pleased with our direction. Our Kempon Hokke Sect has had no special tradition since the Orthodox Teacher Nichiju. The teachings of Nichiren Shonin himself is its doctrine. This category serves as a guide to Kempon Hokke sites that uphold these teachings and goals.
