Those who embrace this philosophy and dedicate their lives to putting it into practice are equal to the Buddha in their spirit and way of life. Their dwelling, wherever it may be, is a Buddha land. From this we see that the Law of Buddhism is the fundamental underpinning of people’s lives. The essence of “establishing the correct teaching” lies in believing in the fundamental good that is the Lotus Sutra and in each individual establishing peace in his or her heart. Only when a society that functions in accord with the fundamental good is firmly secured will a truly peaceful society be actualized. This does not mean, however, that every person in a given society must be united by faith in the Lotus Sutra. What matters is that the spirit of the great philosophy of peace expounded in the Lotus Sutra, with its teaching that all people are Buddhas, be given full play in society as a whole. On a societal level, “establishing the correct teaching” means establishing the concepts of human dignity and the sanctity of life as principles that support and move society.
