Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Monday, July 28, 2014:

Since I have realized that only the Lotus Sutra teaches the attainment of Buddhahood by women, and that only the Lotus is the sutra of true requital for repaying the kindness of our mother, in order to repay my debt to my mother, I have vowed to enable all women to chant the daimoku of this sutra.

The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, page 931
The Sutra of True Requital
Written to the lay nun Sennichi on July 28, 1278
