Gosho for the day
- And yet there is one river called the Sahaya that follows a course as straight as a taut rope, flowing directly into the western sea. A woman who has faith in the Lotus Sutra will be like this river, proceeding directly to the Pure Land in the west. Such is the virtue inherent in the single character myo.

Subject: [SGI] RE: Gongyo: Why 2nd and 16th chapters?
Those two sections highlight the two most important teachings of the Lotus Sutra, the 2nd chapter refers to the skillful means used by the Buddha to teach the Dharma and the universality of Buddhahood, and 16 teaches the eternity of Buddhahood.

Can someone help me understand why gongyo involves recitation of the 2nd and 16th chapters of the lotus sutra? I 've heard about other chapters also being recited but any specific reason for these two chapters?
