Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Monday, April 21, 2014:

Amber draws dust, and a magnet attracts iron particles; here our evil karma is like the dust or iron, and the daimoku of the Lotus Sutra is like the amber or the magnet. If we consider these [analogies, we can see why] we should always chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.

The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, page 142
The Daimoku of the Lotus Sutra
