Buddhism Day by Day: Today there are people who have faith in the Lotus Sutra
“Today there are people who have faith in the Lotus Sutra. The belief of some is like fire while that of others is like water. When the former listen to the teachings, their passion flares up like fire, but as time goes on, the tend discard their faith. To have faith like water means to believe continuously without ever regressing.”
