If one wishes to examine one’s face, one must only look into a clear mirror. Likewise, when one tries to understand the nation’s rise and decline, the most telling source is that of the Buddhist mirror, because there is no teaching more superior.
written by Nichiren Daishonin, 13th century Japan
We all possess the ten kinds of life conditions — from the highest state of Buddhahood to the lowest state of hell. These are the life conditions of the four noble worlds and the six paths. We all experience the feeling of chaos, running in circles and going nowhere. Or, maybe you are caught up in an endless cycle of doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results. Buddhism explains this life condition with the concept of the six lower worlds, where chaos can reign supreme.
