Please understand that some of these Japanese are trying to steal or highjack Buddhism culturally by making Japanese superior via their interpreting the Ethiopian gods on the Mandala in Sanskrit to make them White. The old name for India was Eastern Ethiopia. Nichiren Shonin wrote the Mandala in Chinese Characters. When Kumarajiva translated the Lotus Sutra from the Ethiopian language of Prakrit to Chinese Sanskrit had not yet been invented. The true “Mandala of the Lotus Sutra” is Chinese and Ethiopian and not Chinese and Sanskrit.
In the language of Prakrit or Pali language the word Namo means devotion and is chanted. Many will tell you that Namas or Namu is a Sanskrit word. We are clear that Nam or Namu is a Pali or Prakrit word and not a Sanskrit words as taugh by many Japanese and Whites.
The issue regarding the Mandala of the Lotus Sutra comes down to intrepretation. When you study the Mandala of the Lotus Sutra or the Gohonzon from the stand point of the Pali language the Gohonzon reads like a "Black History Book." When you interpreted the Gohonzon from the stand point of its "Sanskrit meanings" the Gohonzon becomes a White history book void of any Black History. The 1st Buddhist writings were in Praskrit or Pali. During the Gupta era "Sanskrit" made its way into Buddhism and Buddhism went from "Black to White." In the above pictures Aizen on the left and Fudo Myo on the right appear as "Black Gods" in the ancient texts. When interpreted from Sanskrit all Black history is extricated.
Aizen and Fudo Myo-o - These esoteric deities are the kings of mystic knowledge who represent the power of the Buddhas to vanquish blind craving. They are known as "kings of mystic knowledge" because they wield the mantras, mystical spells made up of characters that could not be Sanskrit but prakrit like the word Namo is Prakrit. They are mantras or sounds to protect practitioners of the Dharma from all harm and evil influences. The images appear in terrifying wrathful forms because they embody the indomitable energy of compassion that breaks down all obstacles to wisdom and liberation. . . .
In 1254, Nichiren had visions of the two images that appear on the Great Mandala. On New Year's Day he felt the energetic presence known in Japan as Aizen Myo-o, the true name is known as Avionic had a scion of him. From January 15 through January 17, Chaplain, who is known in Japan as Fudo Myo-o , appeared in the same way. Drawings of these two made from his vision are kept at the Hoda Myohon-Ji (temple)..
In the Pali Cannon there is a Sutra called the "Bija Sutta" or the "Seed." Nichiren Shonin used the characters of the "Bija" on the Gohonzon.
The God Aizen Myo's appears most of the time in the color of red. This god is also know as Dainichi. In Japan there is the Cosmic Black Buddha called Dainichi Nyorai. This God is in form of a Mantra or a sound. Most people call the esoteric gods or the characters or the "Bija" or seeds "Sanskrit. The Pali Cannon the "Bija Sutta" clearly shows that this character is not Sanskrit. Those who choose to make Buddhism White use the "Sanskrit Character or standard to interpret the Mandala of the Lotus Sutra.
Fudo Myo'o is clearly a Black God. In the Pali dictionary the word is called Acala which mean unmovable. When explaining this Buddhist God Sanskrit interpretations are used when this God is clearly in the "Acala Sutta." This is an esoterica God used in a mantra or with sounds.
