7. Eliminating the provisional existence and revealing the origin.

7. Eliminating the provisional existence and revealing the origin.

At the same time, he expressed that he himself was the Buddha having the intrinsically perfect wisdom and is the origin of the Buddha in the infinite past. And he declared, “I, Nichiren, am the ruler, am the teacher, and am father and mother, to all the people of Japan”. It showed he is the Buddha who has the three virtue of the ruler, teacher, and parent in the latter day of the Law.

“When we see the ‘Treasure Tower’ chapter of the Lotus Sutra, we find Shakyamuni Buddha, Taho Buddha, and the ten directions' Buddha who are incarnations. Why had they gathered? ‘Came here to let the Law hold out for a long time’. When we guess three Buddha minds trying to propagate the Lotus Sutra and give to all the children of the Buddha of the future, we understand that their concern and compassion are even greater than those of a father and mother who see their only child inflicted with big suffering. Honen, however, shows not the least concern about their compassion, but had tightly shut the gates of the Lotus Sutra so that no one would have access to it in the latter days of the Law. Like a person who tricks a demented child into throwing away a treasure, he tries to let them discard the Lotus Sutra. How cruel this mind is! If someone is about to kill your father and mother, don't you try to inform your father and mother? If a unfilial son who got drunk is about to kill his father and mother, shouldn't you try to stop him? If an evil person is about to set fire to the temples and pagodas, shouldn't you try to stop him? If your only child is gravely ill, shouldn't you try to cure a child with moxibustion? The people who leave Japanese Zen and Nembutsu followers as it is will be said as follows. ‘If the person feigns oneself and gets close to him without the mercy, namely this person is his enemy’. I, Nichiren, am sovereign, teacher, and father and mother for all the people of Japan”. ‘Opening the eyes. part 2’.
