With an increasing feeling of dismay, I see the gap between the have’s and have not’s of this world continually growing.
The very concept of fairness in our societies seems to have been completely forgotten.
With that in mind, I can think of a whole bunch of people who would do well to listen to the following advice …
If you wish to attain Buddhahood, you have only to lower the banner of your arrogance, cast aside the staff of your anger, and devote yourself exclusively to the one vehicle of the Lotus Sutra.
Worldly fame and profit are mere baubles of your present existence, and arrogance and prejudice are ties that will fetter you in a next one.
~ Nichiren Daishonin
