It is precisely by challenging and overcoming difficulties as ordinary people that we can demonstrate the greatness of the Mystic Law. That we are ordinary people is an expedient means that enables us to fulfill this mission. To be defeated by suffering and filled with complaint is to be shackled by our karma. It is when we squarely face our suffering that we can transform it into our mission. Everything depends on our determination. Opening our eyes to the Buddha within, to the Mystic Law within—that is the linchpin of faith and the foundation of Buddhism.
