“Reply to Matsuno”

“Many people aspire to achieve enlightenment, but only a few of them continue without regressing and attain the true Way. Thus, the objectives of common mortals to attain Buddhahood are frequently betrayed by evil influences and easily swayed by conditions and events.”

(Gosho, p. 1048)
