Gosho Passage of Nichiren Daishonin for December 2017

“Reply to a Believer”

“As such, you will be practicing the Lotus Sutra for the entire day – all twelve zodiacal hours each day…Consider your official duties of work to be your practice of the Lotus Sutra. This is what is meant by the passage, “All elements of life and work are never contrary to the true reality [of all phenomena].”

(Gosho, p. 1220)
