Your Karma & The Three Poisons

Buddhist Temple

This path will enable people to become Buddhas even without separating themselves from mundane desires.

Nichiren Daishonin, 13th century Japan

People immersed in the three poisons of greed, anger and stupidity can immediately transform themselves, as entities of delusion, into the manifestations of purity, the most supreme enlightenment of the True Buddha, without first discarding their desires or eliminating their greed, anger and stupidity. The key lies in the essence of the mystical doctrines of the Lotus Sutra, the Three Great Secret Laws of the True Buddha Nichiren Daishonin.
