With his life, the Daishonin showed us how to attain Buddhahood in this lifetime. “Casting off the transient and revealing the true” means establishing such a firm self that we can overcome any painful hardship, banish darkness, and manifest the essential nature of all phenomena. The more great difficulties we face, the more the life of the world of Buddhahood shines forth. Establishing such a self is the way to attain Buddhahood in this lifetime. It is by manifesting the faith to overcome hardships that we can polish our humanity in a true sense.
