Nichiren Daishonin writes: “The lion king fears no other beast, nor do its cubs” (WND, 997), and “A calf begotten by an ox king will become an ox king; it will never become a lion king. A cub sired by a lion king will become a lion king; it will never become a human king or a heavenly king” (WND, 323). A lion cub grows into a lion. Likewise, though ordinary people, the children of the Buddha who strive to realize kosen-rufu will definitely become Buddhas. This is the very essence of the correct teaching of Buddhism.
