By the single practice of taking faith in Myoho-Renge-Kyo, there are no benefits that will not be drawn to you, no benefits that will fail to come, and no good causes that will fail to be accumulated.
written by Nichiren Daishonin in 13th century Japan
Within Buddhism, it is the teaching of the Lotus Sutra that is the highest truth … The word dori (good reason) encompasses within it a truly profound, broad significance, including the “way” or “path” and “natural principles.” Within the idea of a path, there are a multitude of paths — low paths, high paths, correct paths, and mistaken paths, and there are also the paths of the ten worlds and those of cause and effect. It contains within it the Law or realm of the ultimate reality as it is known in Buddhism.*
