Gosho For The Day
- A single word of this Lotus Sutra that he [Shakyamuni Buddha]
preached is as precious as a wish-granting jewel, and a single phrase
is the seed of all Buddhas.
("The Selection of the Time," MW, Vol. 3, p. 81)
- The lives of human beings are fettered by evil karma, earthly desires
and the inborn sufferings of life and death. But due to the three
inherent potentials of Buddha nature... innate Buddhahood, the wisdom
to become aware of it, and the action to manifest it... our lives can
without doubt come to reveal the Buddha's three properties.
