    were/would not have

    If Nichiren Daishonin were not the True Buddha of Kuon-Ganjo, He would not have said that He had transferred Shakyamuni Buddha’s fifty-year teachings to Nikko Shonin.

    Are the words in bold correctly used?

    Many thanks.

    As he is no longer alive, 'If Nichiren Daishonin had not been.....' is better.
