Nichiren Buddhism is the great teaching capable of awakening the Buddha nature in all people. That was the Daishonin’s purpose in manifesting the Gohonzon.
The twenty-first century has begun with an instance of “upsetting attachments and arousing doubts”2 of global proportions. We have seen a succession of tumultuous changes in all areas, including politics and economics. Many people in society suffer from anxiety and a sense of helplessness.
It is of course important that people pool their wisdom and respond calmly and appropriately to each problem that arises. But reaching a fundamental solution requires the struggle to call forth the Buddha nature in all people. That is because the Buddha nature is the wellspring of hope and a vital force that gives rise to creative energy.
