Nichiren Daishonin

A Quote by Nichiren Daishonin on buddhism, nichiren, and sgi

This passage refers to the great joy that one experiences
when one understands for the first time that one's mind
from the very beginning has been the Buddha.
Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is the greatest of all joys.

A Quote by Nichiren Daishonin on heaven, buddah, soul, and value

"Flint has the potential to produce fire, and gems have intrinsic value.  We ordinary people can see neither our own eyelashes, which are so close, nor the heavens in the distance.  Likewise, we do not see that the Buddha exists in our own hearts."
