On Nichiren’s Gohonzon for Practicing Kanjin
The Ita-Dai-Go-Honzon Issue
The Gain & Loss, Benefit & Punishment,
or Blessing & Curse Inscriptions

The “Gain & Loss Inscriptions” appear on transcriptions of Great Mandalas from Taisekiji, such as the SGI Nichikan, the Nittatsu, and the Nikken. They are located in the top row, on either side of the Daimoku, outside of {flanking}, the two Buddhas and four Bodhisattvas. These are also often said to appear on the Camphor Wood Yashiro Kunishige Dai-Mandara, aka Taisekiji Daigohonzon, aka Ita Mandala.
According to a Kempon Hokke web site:
Even the five gohonzons inscribed by Nikko at Hon-mon-ji do not have these phrases. … (These are the phrases referring to “gain” and “loss”, on either side of the SGI/NST honzons) — From Sokashoshu.com “Nichiren Shoshu’s Honzons and “Let’s recap the so-called dai-gohonzon
I have recently examined pictures of four early transcriptions which do appear to have the Blessing/Curse entries. These are the Nikko-Jinshiro Memorial Daimandara of 1308, as well as apparent transcriptions of a Nichiren Great Mandala by Nichidai of Kitayama & Nishiyama and Nichimyo of Kitayama. The entries are in a prominent position, in the top row, on either side of the Daimoku, outside of {flanking}, the two Buddhas and four Bodhisattvas, as seen on the recent Taisekiji transcriptions. However, these are hard to see, so I am not 100% certain that they are the gain & loss phrases. But I would bet on it.

The Great Mandala on the left, above, (facing) is the Jinshiro Memorial Daimandara of 1308. Nikko inscribed this Daimandara at Omosu Temple in April of 1308. The Jinshiro here is the peasant who was attacked and injured in April of 1279, and was later executed by Hei-no-Saemon-no-jo-Yoritsuna. [Some sources indicate Shiro was actually killed in April 1280]. Note that as a peasant, Jinshiro lacked a surname.
Hei-no-Saemon himself was executed by the Hojo Clan at Atsuhara, in April of 1293. The Jinhsiro Memorial Daimandara was inscribed by Nikko Shonin on the anniversary of that event. The others were transcribed by Nichidai & Nichimyo; who were the second and third Chief Priests of Omosu Temple, now Nichiren Shu Kitayama Honmonji. Nichidai was also the founder of Honmon Shu Nishiyama Honmonji.

From: Sokashoshu.com Nichiren Shoshu’s Honzons
On all the Gohonzons issued by Taisekiji and SGI, we find:
1) Facing it, on the upper right-hand side, a phrase “Jiyaku-Nou-ran-sha, Zu-ha-shichi-bu”, [which] means that to those slander will have their head broken in seven places.
2)Facing it, on the upper left-hand side, a phrase “Yuu-ku-you-sha fuku-ka-juugo”, [which] means that to those who worship, 100% benefit. None of the known gohonzons inscribed by Nichiren has those phrases. Even the five
gohonzons inscribed by Nikko at Hon-mon-ji do not have these phrases.
These phrases only appear in Gosho’s p.869 “Haku-roko-sho” (Kechimyaku-sho) which means that this part of the Gosho is also a fake.

From Let’s recap:
Such phrases never appeared in any other Nichiren gohonzon, and are incongruous with the nature of the gohonzon. (These are the phrases referring to “gain” and “loss”, on either side of the SGI/NST honzons).
Their contention that, “Even the five gohonzons inscribed by Nikko at Hon-mon-ji do not have these phrases ” might be erroneous.
