It is a truth of life that every person is fundamentally endowed with the world of Buddhahood. This truth is hard to understand and hard to believe. Even if one may believe it in one moment, it is easy to lapse into disbelief if something untoward happens. That is because we also possess fundamental illusion or ignorance.
That’s why the Daishonin says we need a “clear mirror” to carry out the practice of “observing the mind.” In earlier times, the Lotus Sutra of Shakyamuni provided such a clear mirror, as did later T’ien-t’ai’s Great Concentration and Insight. In the Latter Day of the Law, the clear mirror is the Gohonzon of Nichiren Daishonin.
