The Daishonin says that when we win over the fundamental evil of slander of the Law and transform the beliefs that we hold in our hearts, then the threefold world—the actual world in which we live—becomes a pure Buddha land, an indestructible treasure realm. He also says that the teaching in which we should believe is the “single good doctrine.” “Doctrine” means a true teaching and refers namely to the Lotus Sutra. “Single good” means fundamental good. The Lotus Sutra teaches that all people can manifest the Buddha nature, and that it is the duty of those who uphold the sutra to take action to enable others to attain Buddhahood as well. This is the wisdom and way of life of the Buddha. This philosophy and practice of the Buddha is precisely what is meant by fundamental good. In the same vein, the Daishonin’s teaching of the Three Great Secret Laws is none other than the practice of fundamental good for the Latter Day of the Law.
