Buddhism Day by Day: This is How Encountering Difficulties Could be Seen as a Source of Peace
“In ‘The Record of the Orally Transmitted Teachings,’ Nichiren say, ‘Difficulties will arise, And these are to be looked upon as ‘peaceful’ practices’ You may wonder how encountering difficulties could be viewed as a source of peace. But the truth if the matter is that through struggle against and overcoming difficulties, we can transform our destiny and attain Buddhahood. Confronting adversity, therefore, represents peaceful practice.”
