大村寿道画「竜口法難図」

 この鎌倉で日蓮大聖人(にちれんだいしょうにん)は捕(と)らわれ、竜ノ口(たつのくち)法難が起こりました。
 大聖人には、身命(しんみょう)に及ぶ迫害(はくがい)を受けながらも、説き顕(あらわ)すべきものがありました。それは苦悩(くのう)にあえぐ人々を無上(むじょう)の幸福境界(きょうがい)に導く南無妙法蓮華経の教え(三大秘法、さんだいひほう)でした。
 そのお心を、御生涯の一大事として本門戒壇(ほんもんかいだん)の大御本尊(だいごほんぞん)に顕(あらわ)し、本弟子六人の中でただ一人、日興(にっこう)上人に託されました。
 日蓮正宗では、日興上人の開いた富士大石寺(たいせきじ)に七百年来大御本尊を厳護(げんご)しつつ、大聖人の三大秘法(さんだいひほう)を広宣流布(こうせんるふ)し、人々の真の幸福と平和な世の中を築くことを目指しています。
 心の支えをお探しの方、悩みをお持ちの方は、是非当山をお訪ね下さい。

Nichiren Daishonin encountered the Tatsunokuchi Persecution here in Kamakura. This occurred because He propagated Nam-MyoHo-RenGe-Kyo in order to save the people who were suffering at that time. Despite the fact that His own life was under this persecution, the Daishonin had one thing that He had to reveal. It was the Buddhism of the Three Great Secret Laws which will lead all living beings to supreme happiness. He inscribed the Dai-Gohonzon of the High Sanctuary of the Essential Teachings as the most important behavior of His life and transferred it solely to Nikko Shonin among the six major disciples.
For more than 700 years, Nichiren Shoshu has been protecting the Dai-Gohonzon mainly at Taisekiji which is located at the foot of Mt. Fuji and which was established by Nikko Shonin. Furthermore, we are aiming toward the establishment of true happiness of all people and a peaceful world by propagating the Three Great Secret Laws.
If you are looking to nurture your heart or if you are under distress, please visit this temple.
