Josei Toda, the second Soka Gakkai president, said:
[When the second of the three powerful enemies exhausts every possible means to attack the votary of the Lotus Sutra,] “the next one to appear is the third powerful enemy. This enemy is fearsome. Yet, when it appears, I’ll be delighted, and I hope all of you will be happy as well. That is the time when we must struggle bravely.
“To save the country, to enrich people’s lives, let us exert ourselves in faith so that when we arrive at Eagle Peak we can report to Nichiren Daishonin, ‘I, a member of the Soka Gakkai, have fulfilled my mission and have thoroughly exerted myself for kosen-rufu.’”
This is the spirit of faith that is directly connected to the Daishonin, who courageously struggled against such devilish functions for kosen-rufu and for the happiness of all people of the Latter Day.
