Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Sunday, January 27, 2013:

If a vessel is free of these four faults of overturning, leaking, being defiled, and being mixed, then it can be called a perfect vessel. If the embankments around a moat do not leak, then the water will never escape from the moat. And if the mind of faith is perfect, then the water of wisdom, the great impartial wisdom, will never dry up.

The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, page 1015
