Lotus Shinseism sect was one of the six largest sects of the Brotherhood of Shinsei. [1] Lotus monks were usually located in the more remote and isolated monasteries. [2]

Beliefs Edit

The Lotus Sect held strictly to the Eight Petals of the Lotus, for they held that was the only way to enlightenment. They placed great value upon zen meditation and often repeat the phrase “All homeage to the Lotus Sutra”. They believed that a single completely sincere utterance of this phrase was enough to gain enlightenment. [3] They placed a great deal of relevance on purity and simplicity. [4]
