Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Saturday, March 29, 2014:

Now, if you wish to attain Buddhahood, you have only to lower the banner of your arrogance, cast aside the staff of your anger, and devote yourself exclusively to the one vehicle of the Lotus Sutra. Worldly fame and profit are mere baubles of your present existence, and arrogance and prejudice are ties that will fetter you in a next one. Ah, you should be ashamed of them! And you should fear them, too!

The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, page 58
