Correct choice of verb

Postby tamguatlay » Mon Dec 05, 2011 10:13 am

Dear Josef

I posted the following question at the Grammar Section, but it was disallowed on the grounds that I have asked a similar question before. However, I have checked and nowhere could I find a similar question posted. I would appreciate it very much if you could help me with the question.

True Buddha Nichiren Daishonin had infused / has infused /infused His life into the Gohonzon. (The Gohonzon is the object of worship in Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism. Its followers believe that the Gohonzon has the life of Nichiren Daishonin's (the founder) life in it because, like Jesus, although He is no more in this world He is believed to be omnipresent.

My question is which boldfaced verb should I use? I think it should be 'has infused' because it remains a fact that His life has been infused into the Gohonzon. (the object of worship).

Am I correct?
