Sacred Calligraphy of the East

Sakyamuni in the Treasure Tower of Taho Buddha

Nichiren sect calligraphic mandala which appears in the book Sacred Calligraphy of the East (p.182). "Hail to the Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Law." appears in the center. The names of Buddhas and Shinto gods are brushed in distinctive Nichiren calligraphy.

However, it should be noted that this mandala does not appear in the GohonzonShu, though there are several which are similar. It may well be copy of a Nichiren Gohonzon transfered to wood centuries ago [like the DaiGohonzon].
