Nichiren Daishonin was the leader of the Bodhisattvas of the Earth of whom he speaks, and it was he who established the Gohonzon. On that premise, his statement “at this time” is very important. Citing a commentary by the Great Teacher Dengyo, he describes it as a “time of conflict.” Referring to the age in which he lived, the Daishonin interprets “time of conflict” to indicate “the two disasters of internal strife and invasion from the western sea that are occurring at present” (WND, 376).
