Reply: It means that the true entity of life and its environment, from the lowest world of hell to the highest world of Buddhahood within the ten worlds, is the manifestation of Myoho-Renge-kyo.

依報あるならば必ず正報(しょうほう)住すべし、

If there is an environment, living beings are bound to dwell there. 

Wherever there is life, its environment invariably exists as well.

A commentary states, “Living beings and their environments always manifest Myoho-renge-kyo.”

The annotations of this sutra read,Life and its environment reveal Myoho-Renge-Kyo without exception….”
