Buddhism: Have Faith Continuously Without Ever Regressing Like Water
Today there are people who have faith in the Lotus Sutra. The belief of some is like fire while that of others is like winter. When the former listen to the teachings, their pass flares up like fire but as time goes on, they tend to discard their faith. To have faith like water means to believe continuously without ever regressing.
