Buddhist Lecture by Anthony "Amp" Elmore

It is Black History month in America. My lecture today does deal with Black history. Historically I bring to you during “Black history month” my most important Buddhist lectures. February is an important month for Black people. February is the month of the founder of our Buddhist Sect Nichiren Shonin is born. Nichiren was born February 16, 1222. February is also the month of the birth of President Lincoln who freed the Slaves of our ancestors in America. February is the month where the great Black liberator Fredrick Douglass was born.

My lecture today is called “The Mandala of the Lotus Sutra.” We at the “Proud Black Buddhist World Association” are the “Rainbow Tribe.” Black is the absence of color (and is therefore not a color). Light appears colorless or white. Sunlight is white light that is composed of all the colors of the spectrum .A rainbow is proof. You can't see the colors of sunlight except when atmospheric conditions bend the light rays and create a rainbow. You can also use a prism to demonstrate this.

So you are clear we at the “Proud Black Buddhist World Association are “The Rainbow Tribe.” Again my lecture today is called; “The Mandala of the Lotus Sutra.” Let us get first things first and correct mistaken teachings. When you Study the SGI works you must use history, logic and science to authenticate the SGI Gosho. The SGI teachings includes racism.

On page 832 in the major writings in the Gosho called the "Real Aspect of the Gohonzon" it is written: Mandala is a Sanskrit word that is translated as "perfectly endowed" or "a cluster of blessings." We who are members of the Proud Black Buddhist world Association delineate ourselves from the Japanese Buddhist sects by our "rejection of the Sanskrit language." Whereas most Japanese Buddhist sects like the SGI, Nichiren Shoshu and Nichiren Shu take pride in their embracing the "Sanskrit Language."

We at the Proud Black Buddhist World association treat the culture and history of "Sanskrit Language" for what it is a "Racist Language." Nichiren Shonin throughout the Gosho makes it clear that he did not accept the later "Sanskrit versions" of the Sutras and teachings. Why would Nichiren Shonin come to accept or call the word Mandala a Sanskrit Word when literary, archeological, and scientific evidence shows that the word Mandala is a Pali or Prakrit word that is clearly written in the "Pali Sutta" over 500 years before the invention of Sanskrit. There was never a language called "Sanskrit" anterior to Buddhism. The Pali Cannon is the 1st Buddhist writings and the Word Mandala is a Prakrit word and not a Sanskrit word as the SGI purposefully interjected this into the writings of Nichiren Shonin in their effort to Whiten or make Buddhism a "White Buddhism" Void of Black History.
