“To be fully endowed” means that the daimoku of the Lotus Sutra is the wellspring of all things, and that it encompasses all value and all benefit manifested in the universe.
“To open” refers to the actual development of new value from the storehouse of the Mystic Law in response to certain conditions. Chanting daimoku is the key that opens the storehouse.
“To revive” means that the benefit derived from the Mystic Law revitalizes the lives of those who have become deadlocked and stagnant. For example, the Lotus Sutra expounds that people of the two vehicles of Learning and Realization, evil people and women—whom the pre-Lotus Sutra teachings exclude from the attaining of Buddhahood—can in fact realize this state of existence. It is a teaching of making the impossible possible.
The life-state of Buddhahood that is cultivated through this power of the Mystic Law is the highest value in terms of character that one can manifest as a human being.
