Buddhism Day by Day: Transplanted Trees Will not Topple if it has a Firm Stake to Hold it up Against Fierce Winds

“When a tree has been transplanted, though fierce winds may blow, it will not topple if it has a firm stake to hold it up. But even a true that has grown up in a place may fall over if those roots are weak. Even a feeble person will not stumble if those supporting him are strong, but a person of considerable strength, when alone, may fall down on an uneven path.” –Nichiren
