" The Three Kinds of Treasures." (WND.vol.2pg.291 )

" The key to all of Shakyamuni's teachings is the Lotus Sutra, and the key to the practise of the Lotus Sutra is expounded in the Fukyo chaoter. What does Bodhisattva Fukyo's profound respect for people signify? The real meaning of the Lord Shakyamuni Buddha's appearance in this world lay in his behavior as ahuman being. How profound ! The wise may be called human, but the toughtless are no more than animals."

In this Gosho , Nichiren Daishonin taught Shijo Kingo the importance of wise and prudent behavior. Because of Kingo's short temper, the Daishonin was worried that he might invite persecution from his master, Lord Ema, and slander from his colleagues. The purpose of Buddhism is to teach us how to live as human beings. " The wise may be called human " means that true human beings are wise and employ good common sense. " The thoughtless are no more than animals " means that even though we may have the form of human beings. If we take thoughtless actions, we will be the same as animals without the power of reason. We will lose all the trust that others have placed in us. We should learn from the passage that it is important for us as human beings to win the difficult struggle against our negativity. With the true humanism won through growth, we can establish good relationships with our neighbors and contribute to society.
