"Illness is one of the four universal sufferings that no one can escape. In that sense, our entire lives are a battle against illness, so there's no need to fear it. By the same token, we shouldn't make light of illness. It's important to quickly take practical measures to get well. 

"Nichiren Daishonin writes: 'Could not this illness . . . be the Buddha's design, because the Vimalakirti and Nirvana sutras both teach that sick people will surely attain Buddhahood? Illness gives rise to the resolve to attain the way' (WND-1, 937).

"We can use the suffering of illness as fuel to strengthen our faith and also to develop a deeper and more expansive state of life. In the light of the Mystic Law and viewed from the perspective of eternity, the struggle against illness is a test to enable us to attain happiness and victory."

"True health is found in a positive attitude toward life that refuses to be defeated by anything."

SGI Newsletter No. 9263, The Wisdom for Creating Happiness and Peace, Part 2: Human Revolution, Chapter 11: "Illness Gives Rise to the Resolve to Attain the Way," 11.2 Transforming the Sufferings of Birth, Aging, Sickness, and Death, from the June 2015 issue of the Daibyakurenge, translation released 6th July, 2015
