to the summit of Kasagamori and chanted the first invocation
of the supreme Law,Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. Thirty-two at the
time, he had just returned to Seicho-ji after more than ten years
of study at temples in Kyoto, Nara and other major centers of
Buddhist learning. It had been arranged that he would give a
sermon at noon in the Shobutsu-bo to relate the fruits of his
efforts. On that occasion, the Daishonin not only proclaimed
Nam-myoho-renge-kyo to be the sole teaching leading directly
to enlightenment in the Latter Day of the Law, but he also
denounced the doctrines of the then-prevalent Pure Land sect.
Among the members of the audience was Tojo Kagenobu,
the steward of the areaand a fervent Pure Land believer.
Furious, he sent his men to the temple to arrest the Daishonin.
Dozen-bo was himself an ardent believer in the Pure Land
teaching, but he had great affection for his young disciple.
While afraid to defend him openly, he instructed two senior
priests, Joken-bo and Gijo-bo, to show the Daishonin a little-known path which would lead him to safety.
