Fujifuse (Jap., ‘neither give nor accept’). A ‘branch’ (ha) of the Nichiren school of Japanese Buddhism established by Nichiō (1565–1630) in 1595. This branch of Nichiren Buddhism teaches that both lay persons and monks and nuns should neither give nor receive alms from persons belonging to other schools and sectarian movements of Buddhism. Although originally suppressed by secular authorities, adherents of this sect continued practising their faith in secret, calling themselves nai-shinja, ‘secret believers’. In 1874, the government finally granted the Fujifuse Branch legal recognition. Its headquarters temple is the Myōkakuji in Okayama Prefecture.
