Victory and defeat are certainly clear. Buddhism expounds the law of cause and effect, which is extremely strict. Those who seek to destroy Buddhism and obstruct kosen-rufu are certain to receive severe retribution for their evil actions.
This guidance is an abstract from 'The World of Nichiren Daishonin Writings' with universal value and application
Since we are beings of flesh and blood, we experience weariness and may become sick or injured. Yet the members of the Soka Gakkai, casting aside fatigue, day in and day out exert themselves for the sake of one person after another. This is a most noble way of life, one directly connected with the spirit of the Buddha of the Latter Day of the Law.
The Buddha’s struggle is expressed by the line in the sutra, “I have never for a moment neglected” (LS16, 226). It is a ceaseless and ongoing challenge. If one “should slacken in resolve even a bit” (cf. WND, 997), devils would take the opportunity to slip in. It is a “battle [that] goes on even today” (WND, 392).
Religious people who attempt to do away with a critic, not through discourse and debate but by force of arms and violence, can only be described as deranged. Nevertheless, that is the reality of many religious figures in the Latter Day of the Law.
We have specially selected some Sensei's guidance. These guidance will be published every week.
