In “The Heritage of the Ultimate Law of Life,” the Daishonin says that through the spirit of faith of many in body but one on mind, “even the great desire for widespread propagation can be fulfilled” (WND, 217). And in “Many in Body, One in Mind,” he states that his followers “will definitely accomplish their great mission of widely propagating the Lotus Sutra” (WND, 618) through the unity of many in body, one in mind.
In light of these passages, it is clear that “mind” means faith aimed at realizing kosen-rufu. Kosen-rufu is the great wish of the Buddha who seeks to lead all people to enlightenment. It is the cornerstone of the Lotus Sutra. “One in mind” means making this great wish of the Buddha one’s own and courageously working for kosen-rufu.
