The Daishonin’s sole purpose was to realize peace and security for the people. He wanted to bring them happiness above all else. It’s only natural, therefore, that he was concerned about the practices of the state and those in whose hands the destiny of the people rested. To secure peace and stability for the people, he aimed for the stability of the state. In this we can see the Daishonin’s truly revolutionary view of the people and the state. When the Daishonin speaks of Japan, he is above all referring to the land where the people dwell and the society in which they live. His primary focus is not the state as controlled by those who wield power.
