Gosho passage...The sun dispels darkness, no matter how deep.A women's heart may be likened to daekness, and the Lotus Sutra to the sun. The Causal law of life. mwnd v.2 p.223 .@@@ @@People's lives in the Latter Day of the Law are heavily polluted by the three poisons of greed ,anger, and stupidity. Specifically, a person's heart can likened to darkness. But why? ~~~~Generally speaking.self perservation is an innate tendency of human beings, especially women..@@@@@ In one sense, this natural sensitivity of women is a tremendously valuable quality as it leads to perseverance and pacifism. But this characteristic can also work negatively when woman gets too attached to the status quo and fails to open up to her limitless potential.~~~~It is not necessarily wrong to try to preserve the peace and security i@@@@@Without this awakening, when we encounter severe difficulties, we will tend to be attached to the lesser goal of preserving ourselves or our families and forget about the greater goal of Kosenrufu and our own enlightenment~~~~Or worse, we may even discard our faith in the Gohonzon, which can result in the destruction of our families.@@@@@ When our lives are based on the great goal of Kosenrufu, the darkness in our hearts is dispelled and we can truly establish rock-solid happiness.....

In regards to your viewpoint above, correct me if I'm wrong, the type of woman you mentioned, who tends to obstruct her husband in his gakkai activities, are basically insecure and has inferior complex and lacks self confidence. But if a woman who quietly prefers to stay at home, tend to the needs of the family, indirectly is supporting her husband in his kosen rufu activities. He has no worries about his family problems and hence, is able to display full participation in Gakkai activities. If he is always worrying about his family, worrying that his wife will not like him to spend too much time in gakkai activities, he will be hampered in his desire for doing kosen rufu. Kosen rufu starts in the family. On the other hand, he must also maintain a good balance, do his best to achieve 100% in his role as a husband, a parent and as a gakkai member. If he do not lay a solid foundation for his family to support him in gakkai activities, he is in fact not showing actual proof and will not accumulate good fortune no matter how hard he try to appear happy before others. A supportive and understanding wife like Mrs. Kaneko Ikeda is a wonderful example for all WD to follow.
