Since time without beginning, the sake [wine] of the illusion of fundamental darkness has intoxicated us, causing us to be reborn time and time again in the six paths and the four forms of birth.
written by Nichiren Daishonin, 13th century Japan
Each of the six paths represents a delusionary state of life that is full of suffering. Furthermore, while we are transmigrating in these six paths, we find it difficult to escape the cycle in this and future lifetimes. How can we break away from the transmigration of the six paths? By obtaining the seed of Buddhahood which is the cause for us to attain enlightenment.
