Worthy persons deserve to be called so because they are not carried away by the eight winds: prosperity, decline, disgrace, honor, praise, censure, suffering, and pleasure. They are neither elated by prosperity nor grieved by decline. The heavenly gods will surely protect one who is unbending before the eight winds. "The Eight Winds" (WND, 794) This is my favorite this past year. Which is so hard.  There have been times when my husband & I didn't know if would make it .  This Gosho has given me encouragement.

"More valuable than treasures in a storehouse are the treasures of the body, and the treasures of the heart are the most valuable of all. From the time you read this letter on, strive to accumulate the treasures of the heart!" (WND, 851)

“ You should always talk with each other to free yourself from the sufferings of birth and death and attain the pure land of Eagle Peak, where you will nod to each other and speak in one mind. “
( WND – 1 , 909 )

" Though one might point at the earth and miss it, though one might bind up the sky, though the tides might cease to ebb and flow and the sun rise in the west, it could never come about that the prayers of the practitioner of the Lotus Sutra would go unanswered "

(WND- 1,  p- 345)

" Strenghten your faith day by day and month after month. Should you slacken in your resolve even a bit, devils will take advantage".  ( WND, 997 )

Believe im this mandala witha all your heart. Nam myoho renge kyo is like the roar of a lion. What sickness can therefore be an obstacle? WND1 P412

Put into flames, a rock simply turns to ashes, but gold becomes pure gold. This trial, more than ever will prove ur faith genuine, and the ten demon daughters of the Lotus Sutra will surely protect you. - WND 1, P497
Comment by varnana on January 6, 2012 at 1:35pm
The great ocean contains all the numerous rivers that flow into it, the great earth contains all santient and insantient beings, the wish-granting jewel is capable of showering down innumerable treasures, and the heavenly king Brahma rules over all the three fold world. The five characters of Myoho-renge-kyo are comparable to these. - WND1 P143
