He [The Daishonin] is talking about a grand struggle against the devilish functions that pervade the universe. This can also be taken as the most fundamental spiritual struggle of Buddhism. The Daishonin knew that only by resolutely winning this struggle would Buddhism begin to spread. The same was true of Shakyamuni—if he spoke out, he would face great persecution. If he didn’t, he would be lacking compassion.
