Gosho Quote for January 2019

Letter to the Ikegami Brothers (Kyōdai-shō)

If you spread the word about this doctrine, devils will come forth without fail. If the devils do not compete to oppose you, there is no way of knowing that this is the true Law. A passage from the fifth volume [of the Great Concentration and Insight (Maka-shikan)] reads, “As practice progresses and understanding grows, the three obstacles and four devils emerge. They compete with one another to interfere. Do not be influenced or frightened by them. If they influence you, this will lead you onto the paths of evil. If they frighten you, this will prevent you from practicing true Buddhism…” This passage refers to not only Nichiren myself. It also applies to the mirror of all disciples and believers. You must profoundly learn this and take it as your spiritual nourishment for your future practice. (Gosho, p. 986)
