In “The True Aspect of All Phenomena,” the Daishonin states, “A common mortal is an entity of the three bodies,26 and a true Buddha” (WND, 384), indicating that the true Buddha is an ordinary person. That’s because, in the Latter Day of the Law, a Buddha resplendently adorned with the thirty-two features and the eighty characteristics could not be the true lord of teachings. The true teacher of the Latter Day is instead an ordinary person in every aspect, but his true identity is that of the Buddha. Unless the teacher is an ordinary person with the heart of the Buddha, realizing the widespread propagation of the Law in a world of ordinary people who are steeped in the three poisons would be impossible.
