The Daishonin did not passively encounter persecution. Rather, he says that he himself initiated this battle. It was a religious revolution, which he carried out under the “banner of the five characters of Myoho-renge-kyo,” the heart of the Lotus Sutra. This is the struggle of kosen- rufu. And, as he indicates when he says, “So the battle goes on even today,” he carried on this struggle unremittingly for more than twenty years. Someone who continues to fight in this manner is a Buddha. The Buddha continuously strives to protect and build happiness for the people.
