Daily Wisdom

From the Writings of Nichiren Daishonin
Sunday, December 2, 2012:

All these things I have done solely in order to repay the debt I owe to my parents, the debt I owe to my teacher, the debt I owe to the three treasures of Buddhism, and the debt I owe to my country. For their sake I have been willing to destroy my body and to give up my life, though as it turns out, I have not been put to death after all.

On Repaying Debts of Gratitude
Written to Joken-bo and Gijo-bo on July 21, 1276
