The Lotus Sutra teaches that all people can attain Buddhahood. Moreover, it states this not merely as doctrine or theory. The sutra explains the immensely compassionate practice of the Buddha who yearns to actualize this principle, and the mission of bodhisattvas who struggle to carry on this great wish after the Buddha’s passing.
The principle of the universal enlightenment of all people that the Lotus Sutra so thoroughly expounds is truly difficult to believe and understand. This is because the teaching that enables all to attain enlightenment, namely the Mystic Law, is, according to the sutra itself, “difficult to understand and difficult to enter” (LS2, 23). The Mystic Law can only be grasped through the profound and boundless wisdom of the Buddha.
