Returning to the passage from “Letter from Sado” that we cited above, it was not out of arrogance that the Daishonin fought with the heart of a lion king. Rather, he says it was because he was “deeply committed to the correct teaching” (WND, 302).
This is an important point. When we are deeply committed to the correct teaching above all else, we are liberated from the fear of death and from the selfishness that causes us to begrudge our lives. As a result, we are empowered to take on all challenges courageously.
