Buddhism Day by Day: The Flower of the Law Blooms Within us
“The flower of the Law blooms within the human being. It shines through our character. The Lotus Sutra is wholly a teaching for human beings. The purpose of religion is to help each person become happy. But even a teaching whose original invent was to promote human happiness may start to restrict people. Even the Lotus Sutra could be used incorrectly to justify discrimination. What is necessary to prevent the danger of such distortion from occurring? It is the discipline’s inheritance of the resolute spirit of faith the mentor to lead people to happiness.”
