"But it nevertheless retains the provisional aspect, and fails to reveal the eternal aspect, of the Buddha's enlightenment. Thus the true doctrine of three thousand realms in a single moment of life remains unclear, and the attainment of Buddhahood by persons of the two vehicles is not properly affirmed."

(The Opening of the Eyes - The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Vol.1, page 235)
Selection Source: "Kyo no Hosshin", Seikyo Shinbun, January 1st, 2015

"We practise the Mystic Law, chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo ourselves and teaching others to do the same. As such, our lives are one with the life of Nichiren Daishonin.

"Chanting resonant daimoku enables us to overcome illness and lead long, healthy lives. It allows us to transform any karma into our mission and establish a state of boundless happiness that will endure forever.

"Let us show actual proof in the form of absolute victory, activating the protective forces of the universe and vanquishing even the most powerful enemies that seek to obstruct our practice."
