What the Daishonin refers to as his “soul” in this passage is the life-state of the Buddha of time without beginning that resides in all people. That life is the essence of the individual person known as Nichiren Daishonin. It is a life of absolute freedom, bright and unfettered. It abounds with compassion toward all living beings and with sympathy for those who are suffering. It urges with inexhaustible wisdom and spiritual energy and overflows with infinite life force, good fortune and benefit. And it burns with the courage to battle the negative tendencies in oneself and others, afraid of nothing.
