Gosho Quote for November 2018 

Many in Body, One in Mind (Itai dōshin ji)

When they (Hōki-bō, Sado-bō and others, as well as the Atsuwara believers) are united with the spirit of many in body, one in mind, they will achieve everything, whereas, in the case of one in body, many in mind, they will not accomplish anything. This has been proven in more than 3,000 volumes of Chinese non-Buddhist literature… Although there are many people in Japan, they will find it difficult to accomplish anything because of disunity. In contrast, I believe that despite their small numbers, if Nichiren and his followers have the spirit of many in body, one in mind, they certainly will accomplish their great purpose and the Lotus Sutra will spread. No matter how numerous evils may be, they will never defeat the single truth. (Gosho, p. 1389)
