Dear Hugo,

I am interested in reading books on Nichiren Daishosin’s writings but cannot find any books that are not linked to SGI. Would you be able to tell me where I can buy them. I live in London,UK. Thanks.

My answer:


There are plenty of books not affiliated to Soka Gakkai (or SBI) but your mistake is to look for books for Nichiren Daishonin.

Indeed, when I looked up on Amazon the term Nichiren Daishonin, I found about 15 books about his writings and all were related to Soka Gakkai. (some were published by The Gosho Translation Committee but this is obviously an organism related to SGI and they are old, rare editions in the $150 range.)

Daishonin is a title bestowed on Nichiren mostly by the SGI followers. This is the reason why you will only find SGI related books.

Other sects call him Nichiren Shonin and here is an example of what you are looking for:
