The Daishonin consistently possessed the spirit and seeking mind not to begrudge his life. Accordingly, while remaining an ordinary person, his spirit to single-mindedly seek the Buddha resulted in a great spiritual transformation, that is, in his attaining the mind of the Buddha.
Further, citing the sutra passage “One should become the master of one’s mind rather than let one’s mind master oneself,” the Daishonin emphasizes the importance of the mind. In other words, when we single-mindedly maintain ungrudging faith, our lives accord with the Mystic Law, and the “fruit of Buddhahood, the eternally inherent three bodies,” naturally emerges within us.
