The Daishonin states that he reached his decision through his investigation of the Lotus Sutra. It wasn’t a superficial question of securing social standing or protecting himself. It was an issue he dealt with at the depths of his life—whether to fall into the cruel hell of incessant suffering, or to take the difficult road of enveloping all people in the warm embrace of compassion while willingly facing persecution. Naturally, the latter course was correct in light of the sutras.
