OTT ESSENTIAL POINT 22 – nichirenlibrary.org

1 March 2015

22. Entrustment Text: “[In future ages if there are good men and good women] who have faith in the wisdom of the Thus Come One, you should preach and expound the Lotus Sutra for them.” Alternative reading: [If there are good men and good women] who have faith in the wisdom of the Thus Come One, and if you preach for them, you should preach and expound the Lotus Sutra. Summary: This passage is saying that the enlightenment of the Thus Come One Shakyamuni has nothing about it that is different from the enlightenment of all living beings. Therefore to have faith in the wisdom of the Thus Come One is to have faith in the Wonderful Law. This is the wisdom of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
