As the Daishonin says, “One should regard meeting obstacles as true peace and comfort” (GZ, 750). When the great wish to realize kosen-rufu soars within our heart, then even the worst persecutions are no more than dust before the wind. Indeed, we find that obstacles lead us to enlightenment. When we struggle to spread the Daishonin’s teachings in the face of persecution, we bring the world of Buddhahood to shine brilliantly in our lives. And it is through this process that we cultivate our highest potential as human beings. This is the direct path to attaining Buddhahood just as we are, the supreme path to attaining enlightenment in this lifetime. Nichiren Daishonin was the one who stood in the vanguard at the start of the Latter Day of the Law and demonstrated actual proof of this ultimate truth through his own life. That is why we revere him as the Buddha of the Latter Day.
