Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Friday, September 20, 2013:

All those who keep faith in the Lotus Sutra are most certainly Buddhas, and one who slanders a Buddha commits a grave offense. When one chants the daimoku bearing in mind that there are no distinctions among those who embrace the Lotus Sutra, then the blessings one gains will be equal to those of Shakyamuni Buddha.

The Fourteen Slanders
