--TO MY FRIENDS--
In The Orally Transmitted Teachings,
Nichiren Daishonin states,
"Difficulties will arise, and these are to be
looked on as “peaceful” practices."(*)
Hardships are golden opportunities for growth.
Let's courageously chant daimoku and
cultivate a rich life condition!
(*)"Chapter Fourteen: Peaceful Practices: Five important points--Point One, concerning the 'Peaceful Practices' chapter," OTT, p.115
"The Record of the Orally Transmitted Teachings says: Concerning the 'peaceful' practices of the Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Law and the practices carried out by Nichiren and his followers now in the Latter Day of the Law, you should understand that, when one practices the Lotus Sutra under such circumstances, difficulties will arise, and these are to be looked on as “peaceful” practices."
