I thought that would yank your chain. The Lotus Sutra, even if that name were ever used for something else, is now the property of Buddhism without doubt. But your challenge did get me to read about the Lotus Sutra.

Of course, what has been bothering me about your posts is the claim to be the one and only path the enlightenment, or nirvana, or salvation. I felt a measure of arrogance coming from these posts. And so I leave you with a quote from one of your favorite teachers:

"on the path of attaining Buddhahood, chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo without arrogance or attachment to biased views.

Nichiren"
