Gosho Passage of Nichiren Daishonin for January 2018

“Reply to Kyo’o”

“You should believe in this mandala with the utmost sincerity. Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo is like the lion’s roar….I, Nichiren, with sumi ink, have infused my life [into the Gohonzon]. So believe in it. The will of the Buddha is the Lotus Sutra, but the spirit of Nichiren is nothing other than Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo.”

(Gosho, p. 685)
