The Daishonin calls this practice of revering others “the heart of the practice of the Lotus Sutra” and “the purpose of the appearance in this world of Shakyamuni Buddha.” He states that the essence of Buddhism lies in the practice of revering others. This is extremely significant. Though Bodhisattva Never Disparaging was himself vilified and persecuted, he nevertheless continued his practice of revering others. The Daishonin did the same. His conclusion is that the only way to lead people to happiness in the Latter Day of the Law is to cultivate the Buddha nature in oneself and enable others to do so.
