In “The Real Aspect of the Gohonzon,” the Daishonin says: “Never seek this Gohonzon outside yourself. The Gohonzon exists only within the mortal flesh of us ordinary people who embrace the Lotus Sutra and chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo” (WND, 832).
We must never seek the Gohonzon anywhere but within ourselves, he says. The Daishonin attained the life of the Buddha of beginningless time. His teaching would have no meaning unless we could realize the Mystic Law in our lives and attain this supremely noble state ourselves.
