When we face the clear mirror of the Gohonzon. If we only feel that the Gohonzon in the altar is great and we simply beg for its favor or become dependent upon it as an external object, then no matter how much time we spend chanting before it, we ourselves will not shine. The same holds true if, when something bad happens, we complain as if it were the Gohonzon’s fault. Rather, by tirelessly polishing our lives in the midst of our daily affairs, confident that we have in ourselves the same wonderful state of life that the Gohonzon embodies, our lives come to shine with good fortune and benefit.
