Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Monday, November 19, 2012:

In this age, it is as natural for a woman to change her fixed karma by practicing the Lotus Sutra as it is for rice to ripen in fall or chrysanthemums to bloom in winter. When I prayed for my mother, not only was her illness cured, but her life was prolonged by four years. Now you too have fallen ill, and as a woman, it is all the more timely for you to establish steadfast faith in the Lotus Sutra and see what it will do for you.

On Prolonging One's Life Span
Written to the lay nun Myojo in 1279
