The quick Buddhist lecture "Free English Buddhist Gongyo Prayer Book" was uploaded by Anthony "Amp" Elmore President and Founder of the "Proud Black Buddhist World Association." The Proud Black Buddhist organization is a Nichiren Buddhist sect that practices the teachings of Nichiren Buddhism "inclusive of Black Buddhist history culture and language. Elmore notes from the Gosho "Recitation of the Life span and Expedient means chapter" whereas Nichiren Shonin notes that Shakyamuni Buddha taught the "precept known as "following the customs of the region." Elmore challenges the Nichiren Sects, "The SGI, Nichiren Shoshu and Nichiren Shu in regards to their not only extricating all Black culture, History and language from the Buddhist teachings Elmore calls Japanese Buddhist teachers "Cultural Imperialist" in that they do not recognized Black or African or African/American Buddhist history, culture and language.
Elmore notes in other lectures that the original inhabitants of Japan were Black people and a large proportion of ancient Japanese were "Black." Elmore notes the Black Cosmic Buddha statue at Todaji Temple in the ancient capital in Nara Japan.
