Text: “Such a person assuredly and without doubt / will attain the Buddha way.”


Glosses on the right:

without doubt—the cutting off of fundamental darkness


p.217Glosses on the left:

Such a person—the ten factors of life


Summary: This passage is saying that since each of the Ten Worlds is eternally endowed with the ten factors of life of original enlightenment, both hell and the world of Buddhahood are essentially one, and hence we are assured of attaining Buddhahood. This is what is meant by accepting and upholding Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
