Buddhism Day By Day: Buddha & All People Are Absolute Equal
“No discrimination exists in Nichiren Buddhism. Nichiren teaches that Buddha and all people are absolute equal. Chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with faith in this point is a matter of the utmost importance. Doing it is to embrace the Lotus Sutra, it is also an act of succeeding to the heritage of Buddhism. In this light, we can say that the gist of the teaching of the Lotus Sutra is that all people are equal.”
