Making a vow limitlessly brings forth a person’s latent potential. The Daishonin had vowed to dedicate his life to seeking, protecting and spreading the Law. He lived entirely for the Law. He made the Law accessible to all people. No vow could be greater than this.
When we dedicate ourselves to the Law, our only course is one of wholehearted commitment to the happiness of all people.
During the eighteen years from the time he declared the establishment of his teaching until the Tatsunokuchi Persecution, the Daishonin waged a struggle based on the Law. It was a struggle of selfless dedication to the propagation of the Law without a moment’s rest. These efforts culminated in the Tatsunokuchi Persecution. His life was an example of what it means for an ordinary person to live at one with the Law.
