This volume, a project of the English Translation Committee of the Nichiren-shu Overseas Propagation Promotion Association (NOPPA), constitutes a translation of all eighteen writings of Buddhist reformer Nichiren Shonin (1222~1282) included in the Nichiren Shonin Zenshu (Complete Writings of Nichiren Shonin), Volume I: Theology 1, published in Tokyo in 1996. The Nichiren Shonin Zenshu is a modern Japanese version of Nichiren's original writings, translated and edited with annotations by modern scholars of Nichiren Buddhism. Despite its all-inclusive titles, the Zenshu is highly selective in that it takes into account only writings considered bibliographically authentic (i.e., attested by original manuscripts).
