Buddhism Day by Day: A Lion’s a Lion Because They Roar

“Nichiren wrote that wrath can be either good or bad. Self-centered anger generates evil, but wrath of social injustice becomes the driving force for reform. Strong language that censures and combats a great evil often awakens adverse reactions from society, but this must not intimidate those who believe they are right. A lion is a lion because he roars.”
