Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Tuesday, November 12, 2013:

Even if your fiefs should be confiscated or you yourself driven out, you must think that it is due to the workings of the ten demon daughters, and wholeheartedly entrust yourself to them. Had I not been exiled, but remained in Kamakura, I would certainly have been killed in the battle. In like manner, since remaining in your lord's service will likely be to your detriment, this may well be the design of Shakyamuni Buddha.

The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, page 824
A Warning against Begrudging One's Fief
Written to Shijo Kingo in July 1277
