It is the lot of people living in the Latter Day of the Law to be swept along from one conflict to the next as if caught in a raging torrent. The only way to stop this cycle is for people to bring forth their Buddha nature. Therefore, manifesting the world of Buddhahood is the most fundamental path to peace. The Daishonin was engaged in a struggle to make this a sure and eternal path for all, and we of the SGI are carrying on his work.
This guidance is an abstract from 'The World of Nichiren Daishonin Writings' with universal value and application
The purpose of all our activities is world peace and the happiness of people everywhere. This is kosen-rufu. It is my hope and wish that young successors will further expand and extend the path I have opened, traveling to the farthest corners of the earth as emissaries of happiness. If we accept this people-centered perspective as the Daishonin’s point of departure and the foundation of his concept of “peace of the land,” then the logical result of establishing the “peace of the land” is world peace. Making the land peaceful means realizing peace.
The Daishonin always made the happiness of the people his top priority. If one’s actions are based on the Lotus Sutra, which teaches the enlightenment of all living beings, people inevitably become one’s primary focus.
To remonstrate means to lodge a protest against a person wielding absolute power or authority. One cannot take on authorities without a fierce determination to face even life-threatening persecution. It is with this spirit that the Daishonin took the action he did. He simply couldn’t suppress his desire to relieve people of their suffering.
