The Daishonin’s specific reference to Japan is as a typical representation of a land of the Latter Day, as well as an indication of what it means to lead the people of this age to enlightenment. In other words, the enlightenment of the people of Japan equals the enlightenment of all people in the Latter Day. Furthermore, it is precisely because of his singleminded determination to help people suffering amid the harsh realities of society that he specifically names Japan, the country where he resides.
