Life of Holy Priest Nichiren - 24. "Question at Hachiman Temple" by Tenrei Horiuchi. Nichiren was arrested at his resident. He was forced to ride on a bare horse and brought to the court yard. During the trip, they passed in front of a Hachiman temple. He questioned the Hachiman Bodhisattva, who was the protector of the Buddhist sutra, "why the Bodhisattva does not show a miracle even-though a disciple of the Buddhist sutra is receiving the prosecution? Is Hachiman Bodhisattva real god?"
